Over the duration of 3 weeks in November the State of Origin will take place. The timeslots are retained for the mid of the week although there is pressure for Sunday Nights.
According to reports, the three weeks for the State of Origin are November 4, 11, and 18 have been confirmed for the series. The venues for the 3rd and 4th rounds have also been fixed.
In the meantime, the NRL has taken the most planned risk for the Peter V’landy’s period by dropping the system of two referees and returning to the one whistleblower.
According to Phil Rothfield, the journalist for Daily Telegraph has revealed that there have been three NSW stadiums that will host the season. The season will begin on the 28th of May.
On Friday, Ricky Stuart the coach of the riders gave the statement to Fox League that his team will be traveling to the Campbelltown stadium.
And Rothfield said on Saturday that the 3 stadiums selected to organize the NRL matches and why some of the other suburban stadiums have been not chosen.
“I’m told they’ve settled on three venues in NSW,” Rothfield told Fox League Live. “The Central Coast stadium where Newcastle the Warriors and Manly will play out of”.
Best Stadiums in NSW
“It’s a great stadium there, we are also going to use Campbelltown for the Wests Tigers, Canberra, probably Cronulla and St George will play out of there, too”.
“Then we’ll have Bankwest for Parramatta, Penrith, Canterbury, the Roosters, and Souths”.
“The problem with using ground likes Leichhardt is that our game is going to be taken across the universe, they want a backdrop with reasonable facilities to show we are a big-time sport.”
The venues that have been selected are in Campbelltown, Melbourne, and New Castle.
The Green Machine coach told Fox League Live: “I don’t know if I’m 100 percent correct, but from very briefly talking to my CEO Donny Furner this afternoon.
“I think our home games may be, for the short term, played at the Campbelltown stadium. But I know our stadium here is ready to go, it’s a wonderful stadium, it should be opened up and we should be allowed to play here just as they are playing in Melbourne, Queensland and a couple of stadiums in Sydney.
“I know the ACT government is ready to go in opening up our stadium, too. I’d like to think after six to eight weeks we’d be playing here.”
The CEO of the titan’s, Steve Mitchell said that he does not have any idea about where the Titans will be playing their opening match of the season that will also feature the Cowboys.
Mitchell also told reporters; he has some doubts about Queensland clubs playing at the Suncorp Stadium: “We want to play at home. CBUS is a great stadium, it’s not ideal to move away from there. If we have to go to Suncorp, we have to go to Suncorp, it’s like everything else. We need to get through what’s in front of us to get back on the field.”
