Distances travelled to away games

Recommended Posts

Why have the distances changed between 2019 and 2020, don’t they play home and away?

They must be including the Roosters’ trip to Saints.

They don't play every team twice.

Cheers, never knew that (not that I’d ever thought about it). 16 teams and 24 games is as odd as SL’s schedule.

There are also "on the road" games which vary year by year, plus in 2019 there was the Magic round in Brisbane.

Out of interest, does anyone know how the NRL decides it's fixtures? Everyone plays everyone once, then 9 other games. I know they call it the "draw", but it can't be random, can it? Or do they rotate who plays whom twice, and once home or away through the years? Otherwise, you could go years and years never playing a particular side at home.

We always moan about loop fixtures, but it doesn't seem to be an issue there. I realise they don't have repeat fixtures, but still.

They aren't playing the same teams 3 times in the regular season and have no cup games either so they can't again meet the same team in that way

With New Zealand Warriors based the furthest away from all other clubs, do they pay every club travel costs as is the case in Super League 

The NRL pays travel costs.

Plus are there a hardcore of Luddites who hate them because they’re not from Greater Sydney and don’t bring away fans?

x 2 x 1.61 = ~10,987 kilometres round trip.  To be made 1 time over the regular season by each SL team.

I think it’s 13 one way trips for The Wolfpack, giving them a travel distance of 71,416km

The Roosters have played a game in Perth,over the last couple of seasons so that adds 4000+ miles.

God knows it’s seems quite bizarre . A team plays  another once in 18 months then the same team twice in a month

Intrigued by this so worked out Widnes' trips next season.

Came out at 3,695 miles for the round trips or 5,912 Kms.

I've travelled from workington to Doncaster, it felt like it was further than 3695 miles.
