Absolute dross of a schedule construction.
Only 6 Home games in 2023.
Single Home game in Perth over a two month period.
Family unfriendly game times.
How can a franchise re-build a fan base under these circumstances.
Now that Covid is over can we have GRR back please?
At least we still have Club Rugby.
PS I know the WA State Govt's activities at HBF in 2023 don't help.
- expected injured ??? - Trevor Hosea?

Just my random Sunday thoughts. Force one has me a little flummoxed. Any injuries I got wrong / missed?
Well f*** me, well guess I will leave it until later then. Was actually originally thinking of going in winter, but bugger me I don't want to miss any club rugby here. (I know I'm a f***en tragic) Local club rugby and NPC really are my sports/rugby heaven!!That game's being played in Townsville
Didn't realise that Sef was still with Reds Reg,(haven't checked team lists yet) but good on him if he is. But I will try and guess who or what team Holland will put on field against Reds. Good to see guess work going on already.Ok, trying to distract myself from the Wallabies this is my attempt to look at likely Oz teams come Round 1:
