Both competitions had average rounds last week.
I’m not a fan of the AFL grand final rematch being the first game of the season. I think it’s lazy – the media love a narrative that writes itself. I would prefer a later meeting after both teams have had time to settle a form line.
It doesn’t seem likely that an NRL coach could be ousted after three rounds, but Wests may be a chance if they don’t show something this weekend. Especially if New Zealand roll over the top of them.
