A second long, long weekend of football. Although with Anzac Day on Monday it makes for less disrupted football rounds than when it falls in the middle of the week.
Five out of eight for NRL, that’s what I get for sounding complacent.
Seven out of nine for AFL, with Richmond and Geelong inexplicable losers – both sides showing trending declines from former standards.
(Draws count as correct)
NRL (last round 5/8; season tally 34/48)
Brisbane (the Broncos and Canterbury would both be happy with a draw)
AFL (last round 5/9; season tally 21/36)
