Notes from The NRL Tweet on the Draw.
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL Biggest travesty of 2011 NRL Draw is the fact the Dragons don't play the Storm until Round 24... unbelievable marketing stuff up. #RedV

#NRL Recorded NOT The Footy Show in higher definition tonight... wow, now you'll really want to avoid our videos!
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL Perhaps the biggest stuff up for Rivalry Round 2011 is making Tigers available & not putting them against the Raiders... 1989 anyone?
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL Yes there's no 'perfect' way to do it (give me some time to think of an alternative) but it's like the schedule maker doesn't even try.
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL More than one shuffle for rest of Rivalry Round in 2011. Warriors get Bulldogs & Cowboys get Tigers. Who thinks this stuff up?
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL Just can't get over the NRL thinking that there's any rivalry at all between Canberra & Melbourne... yet again part of 'Rivalry Round'
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL Interesting that although both Raiders & Roosters don't get pre-Origin byes in 2011 - they get Broncos & Storm minus Origin 2 stars.

#NRL Be interested in your thoughts on 2011 NRL Draw. Get the badly formatted NRL pdf here http://bit.ly/NRL2011Draw (print setup very poor)
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL Fine with Grand Final Replay in this case (Dragons v Roosters) being held til Round 7 but Storm had to play Premiers in Rd 1 of 2011.
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL 2011 NRL Draw is automated for most part but no teams should play twice in 6 weeks. Rabbitohs v Bulldogs Rd2+6, Raiders v Tigers Rd3+8.
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL Although both Roosters & Raiders are disadvantaged by this in 2011 - the NRL finally made it so no team had 2 Byes before Origin games.
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL @NRL improved the Origin Byes disparity but the @RaidersCanberra & @sydneyroosters will NOT get a bye before an Origin game in 2011.
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL Titans, Storm, Broncos, Dragons, Cowboys & Sea Eagles get byes before State of Origin 1.
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL Melbourne get a heavy home schedule too (2010 totally opposite) with 6 of first 8 games at AAMI Park in 2011.
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL With 6 of first 7 away in 2011 St.George-Illawarra could unveil the Premiership to their home crowd with an 0-4 record. I stress could.
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL Eels will play 5 of their first 7 at home in 2011... with stopovers in Auckland and Melbourne. Must start well with that home draw.
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL Dragons playing 6 of their first 7 away in 2011 must be ground related... I know WIN Stadium is unavailable but what's up with Kogarah?
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL Can @NRL_Dragons please explain to the #RedV fans why WIN Jubilee can't host any more than 1 game in the first 7 weeks?
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL Predicted 2011 Round 1 Schedule: Fri: GLD-STI, SYD-SOU, Sat: WAR-PAR, BRI-NQL, PEN-NEW. Sun: CAN-CRO, CBY-WTG. Mon: MEL-MAN.
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL On 2nd thoughts... while it makes zero sense for Dragons not to open at home in RD1, they'll get Titans on Friday instead of BRI v NQL.
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL Which then leaves Titans v Dragons + Storm v Sea Eagles on the outer... mmm what would you do if you were Channel 9?
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL Lock in Broncos v Cowboys as one Friday spot, the other will be a Sydney home team ie. Roosters v Rabbitohs - Dogs v Tigers has Sunday.
NRLTweet The NRL Tweet 
#NRL 1st impressions of 2011 NRL Draw: Dragons v Storm simply had to be opening game on Friday Night. Another swing & miss by NRL Marketing.


In the next few days there will be Team by Team Schedules Uploaded to this page.
