When are the powers that be going to realise that playing Origin midweek over a six week period is a terrible system? There needs to be a three week period where it is played on weekends.
That way teams aren't punished for their success by having their teams decimated mid season while others get a chance to pull back points. It would also solve the problem of the NRL taking a back seat to Origin for six weeks with the fans and media as it does at the moment.
On another note, the random system that sees some teams play the Sharks twice while others play the Storm twice also has to go. I'm not sure how to replace it but that is such an unfair system its not funny.
