The annual late April/early May rugby league test match replaces the usual round of games in the NRL.
Parammatta are doing some maths to revise their salary cap and the other teams preparing for the part of the season that focusses on State of Origin.
Australia are always favourites for these games, even though New Zealand have dominated recent encounters.
AFL continues on with more uncertainty than usual marking results in the first third of the season.
