Mark this weekend for a new level of lame desperation from the NRL.

"Magic weekend"
Appropriately named really.
When simple folk talk of magic it's usually referencing an aspect of something they have no idea how it works.
No difference here.

The simple folk at NRL HQ seem to be hoping for some magic for this to be anything but a complete cluster fuck.

Add to this the front end loading of the fixture, could we see an even earlier stagnation of the race for the finals than we did this years record of half the season.

I'll call it again.
The back end will suffer in 2019.

It's lame!

It's desperate!

It's NRL!
What exactly are you on about pal???? You're like an angry old man yelling at clouds. Do you just need something to scream about or have you got something coherent to say?
I thought you'd be up to speed with this.

The NRL are playing all round 9 2019 games at Lang park.

Vicderpians cannot comprehend anything other than their narrow insular view .

It's not a new idea .

But I suppose when you can't tell the difference between forum members here & memebers of football clubs then you can't expect the poor southern fools to comprehend different ideas that aren't sanctioned by Gilty

I comprehend that if an entire round of AFL moved to the Gabba there'd be riots.
But you pack of limp wrists just roll over and cop it sweet.
And for what....?
What can they possibly hope to achieve?
All at the cost of everyone South of the border that turn up each week.
That I can't comprehend.

i am 50 / 50 on the idea..

i think the NRL were given a good wack of cash by the QLD government for playing it in Brissy

(just to let you know Sport Capital) this idea originates from the Super League in England)
where it has been very successful

Weekend of NRL to deliver tourism magic for Brisbane
In what is expected to be one of Brisbane’s biggest events of 2019,
Tourism Industry Development Minister Kate Jones has today announced the draw for the NRL’s Brisbane Magic Round.

Ms Jones said the Magic Round, a whole Premiership round of NRL all being played at Suncorp Stadium over four blockbuster days from 9 - 12 May 2019, had been specifically designed to maximise tourism outcomes.

“Fans from across the country will descend on Brisbane for four action-packed days of footy at Suncorp Stadium next May,” Ms Jones said.

“The event will see back-to-back games played throughout the weekend and will be complemented with a festival throughout the Stadium precinct.

“This event is the first of its kind for the NRL – we know the Magic Round will be the hottest tickets on the NRL’s calendar for 2019.

“The game match-ups have been planned to maximise tourism outcomes and fan engagement so that each day is headlined by a Queensland club.

“We’ll have the Gold Coast Titans and Cronulla Sharks first up on Thursday night, Brisbane’s Broncos and the Manly Sea Eagles Friday night and the North Queensland Cowboys and South Sydney Rabbitohs on Sunday afternoon.

“With a team dominated by Queenslanders, the Melbourne Storm could be a home crowd favourite on Saturday as they take on the Parramatta Eels.

“Today’s NRL draw announcement shows there will be 44 NRL Premiership matches in Queensland in 2019 - eight of those over the Magic Round weekend.”

Ms Jones said the government continued to work with the Brisbane City Council through Brisbane Marketing to secure valuable major events like the Magic Round for Queensland for Queensland.

“We’ve got the runs on the board when it comes to major events,” she said.

“The Palaszczuk Government has more than doubled the value of Queensland’s major events calendar – this year tipped to generate $780 million for our economy.”

Deputy Mayor Adrian Schrinner said being chosen to host the inaugural NRL Magic Round once again demonstrated Brisbane’s reputation for staging world-class events.

“Brisbane will be in the sporting spotlight once again when all 16 NRL teams play a round in the one venue, which is set to attract thousands of visitors to our city,” Cr Schrinner said.

“Major events such as the Magic Round inject $150 million into the city’s economy each year and support thousands of local jobs.

“We love our sport in Brisbane, and I’m looking forward to seeing Suncorp Stadium throw open its doors to sell-out crowds.

“I invite footy fans from afar to make the trip north to Brisbane to experience our warm hospitality and weather as well as our world-class entertainment and dining.”

NRL CEO Todd Greenberg said the Magic Round was a major milestone for Australian rugby league.

“Magic Round will be something unique to sport in this country,” he said.

“It will be fantastic to see all 16 clubs in Brisbane over one weekend in what will be a real celebration of Rugby League.”


The Brisbane Magic Round match ups are:

Thursday 9 May 2019: Titans v Sharks

Friday 10 May 2019: Tigers v Panthers

Eagles v Broncos

Saturday 11 May 2019: Bulldogs v Knights

Warriors v Dragons

Storm v Eels

Sunday 12 May 2019: Roosters v Raiders

Rabbitohs v Cowboys

"Maxamise Tourist Outcomes" AHAHAHAHA it would be if Sydney Rugby League fans actually traveled to away games. Heck they dont even go to there home games in Sydney, so what hope do they have travelling up here.

See this is why posters on here laugh at you ..
Your total lack of comprehension .
You cannot compare a whole Rd of AFl at the Gabba with a whole Rd of Rl at Suncorp .

The Gabba has ordinary crowds .....& Qld is far from being a AFL state or stronghold.
Suncorp has good crowds ( best in the comp) & Qld is a Rl stronghold .
Hence playing it here .

Most people with an IQ above a wilted house plant can work that out for themselves .
You seem to have a problem .

You should thank me for helping with your education .

They do get good crowds......
Broncos vs Manly on the Friday should be a ripper.
But,
How's all the Saturday and Sunday matches going to fair?

Aside from all that crap, the complete shafting of all those who turn up for their teams every week from Sydney and Melbourne.
Total disregard.
Total disgrace.
And for what....... What will make this crap a success crap?
