    I've just noticed that the 'FOX Sports' Game of the Round" includes, during the 7 weeks of the competition:

    1 appearance: Melbourne, Qld Country, Force
    2 appearances: NSW Country, Fiji, Canberra
    5 appearances: Sydney
    0 appearances: Brisbane

    So that'd be Sydney and NSW Country, who achieved a grand total of 1 win (NWS beating Sydney) last year, getting shown on Fox Sports 7 times in 7 weeks. Doesn't bode well for being the "Game of the Week"! Meanwhile, the 4 finalists from last year (and the 4 finalists from 2017, so consistently good sides) get only 6 appearances in total between them.

    I can understand the argument that Sydney should appear more often because they have a larger audience, but then Melbourne has a large potential audience and only gets 1 appearance, and Queensland is supposed to be a cradle of rugby and their two teams only get a combined 1 appearance in 7 weeks!

    It's not even as if Fox are trying to save money by only broadcasting from one location, as they have chosen to broadcast games from Dubbo and Fiji.

    Maybe it is a cunning ploy to promote the streaming service...

    a plan so cunning you could put a tail on it and call it a weasel or as cunning as a fox who’s just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University?

    Nice too see them promoting the game in Western Sydney too. Home games at Woolahra Oval and one at Forshaw Park (probably invite ScoMo to kick off - if his Sharkies aren't playing that day).
    You'be hard pressed to get 2 venues further from the west. Dead Set!

    We’ll be at Woollahra and Port Macquarie hope we won’t be the only Force fans there.
