The competition wont be second rate from the beginning of June until the middle of July. The superstars of the game wont be in camp with the NSW or Queensland Origin teams or below their best in having to back up from a brutal midweek game. Some players get burnt out and are affected by an Origin campaign for the remainder of the season. Even the best sport science cant get them back to playing the football they produced to make the Origin sides in the first place. It affects the integrity of the competition. We have split rounds, understrength teams and crappy football. Look at teams like the Brisbane Broncos, Newcastle Knights and St George Illawarra, who together supplied 15 Origin players (five each) last year. The Dragons and Knights bombed out of finals contention and the Broncos scraped in. You compare those three to the Parramatta Eels. They had an uninterrupted run because they only supplied one player, winger Blake Ferguson, and finished fifth on the ladder. So this year, lower-placed teams the Wests Tigers, Canterbury Bulldogs and New Zealand Warriors lose the advantage of being virtually at full strength for the whole season, not that it has been overly helpful to them. This year we will have 34 of the best players on board for the entire competition. It means the standard of football week in, week out will be better. There will be more desperation this year because of the shortened season. Two points are more valuable over 17 or 20 rounds than they are over 24. The pressure to win is far greater because the finals will arrive a month quicker. Those who are saying the Sydney Roosters are giving too much of a head start didnt count on the fact they will have the worlds best player, James Tedesco, every week.
