The countdown to the 2013 NRL Season is now well and truly underway with the release of Season Draw for next year.
www.wdnicolson.com has had a quick glance at the new draw and here are the main points of discussion coming out of it.
We knew certain parts of Round 1 before time (like SBW and the Roosters would play the Bunnies at the SFS), but this morning the NRL finally released the full 26 Round schedule - including the fixed kick-off times for the first 20 rounds.

After the Round 1 Draw you can read my quick hit thoughts on the Draw (including the all important Free-to-Air quota) and I will add more about each team's draw as the day unfolds.
If you have a view on the draw or noticed a quirk in the schedule please comment below or reply on Twitter @NRLTweet and I'll make sure I respond.
PS. The game also has a new CEO with fmr Lloyds Australia Bank CEO David Smith appointed.
