The contractual obligation season continues to introduce novel ways of providing product and fulfilling requirements to produce necessary amounts of product.
I don’t know how it would be possible to study whether the injury rates players are experiencing this year are as a result of all the changes or whether they are coincidental to that.
It would seem the only way would be to do it again, and I don’t really expect that to happen.
Except the beginning of next season is getting closer all the time, and crowd gatherings and movement around regions or between regional areas look like they’ll be inhibited to some degree next year.
I’m dirty that Newcastle cost me a perfect round in the NRL too.
