    ANZ stadium release. Didn't mention WCC. Are trial games considered part of the season o the indigenous game, or does the season start round 1 ?

    Yeah timing wise this would be the WCC and it was discussed this year that they might be playing it over here in 2018.

    Sounds good but the only query I have is why this isn't being played at the home of Rugby League (Lang Park)??

    2 teams from a lower quality competition playing 2 average NRL teams for pre-season bragging rights. Meh.

    Id rather they play the 9s or bring back the WCC and actually play for something.
