NRL willing to move game to please Broncos

Parramatta are the other team guaranteed a home final for finishing fifth or sixth, however the NRL is reluctant to schedule the Eels on Friday night if they play against Cronulla or the Tigers.

The Tigers and Sharks square off at Leichhardt Oval this Sunday afternoon, meaning a Friday fixture against the Eels would only allow them a five-day turnaround.

The Friday night Eels match at Bankwest Stadium could be an option if Parramatta are drawn against the Brisbane Broncos, who play on Saturday this weekend.

  • No where does it say it is to please the broncos.  The different options are to ensure every side has a 6 or 7 day turnaround which sounds fair.

  • If it was the other way round it wouldn’t even be dicussed. 

  • Broncos play on Friday nights. I think that is in the NRL rule book.
