Why is this round called the "Magic" round?

The crowd reported is around 133-137k. There is a spin on highest number of spectators for some of these matches etc.

It is a joke because if you had the games at the normal venues, I think you probably down only 20-25% at most. Considering the tickets were being sold from $60-100 for a 8 game package, it is hard to see financially how the NRL were better off significantly.

Also who paid the costs of flying and accommodating the players, staff and officials etc? Was it the clubs or NRL?

The concept needs a bit of tweaking as it is better playing in other states rather than Brisbane and Sydney. This way the NRL can attract different fans.

It will be intriguing to work out how many of the crowd on the weekend were players, staff etc. Also how many spectators attended all 4 days etc.

The Qld state Govt through Tourism Queensland paid several million to the NFL for the event.

Huge profit for NRL.

WA tourism is doing the same to host Origin, that is why itís played ion a Sunday not a Wednesday so visitors may spend a weekend in WA

I honestly cannot recall if the injury list has been higher than this year. I canít think of any clubs being unaffected.

It will affect the salary cap for the future as we have now fringe players playing more grade games and getting a chance to prove their talent.

I always have a chuckle when it happens.

The first time I think was in the 60s when Newtown announced that to improve performance it was dropping Dudley Towers.

This week Josh Mansour was the latest.

That is: team management blames recent weeks' losses on  a winger and drop him to improve the next week's prospects.

Great point JWH -may as well sack the runner ; or in racing parlance, the strapper.
