So, the NSW second team defeating the QLD first team needs a bit of work. Maybe next year they’d pick the actual second best half-back/five-eighth combo instead of the the development option.
This weekend the NSWRL premiership plays in QLD, the VFL may well play in a variety of departure lounges wherever two teams are present. Crowds are optional for Rugby League, they are missed in AFL.
AFL tips last week were a tragedy, keeping the interest in positions seven and eight alive. Six into two doesn’t go. It should be West Coast and Richmond, but one of those at least won’t be there.
I think the NRL top eight is settled.
(Draws count as correct)
NRL (last round 3/4; season tally 89/128)
AFL (last round 3/9; season tally 88/144)
