There's no "easy" draw in the NRL but Cronulla may have come the closest with the revised fixture list
for the 2020 Telstra Premiership season announced on Thursday.
With a new shortened 20-round season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, each NRL club will play 10 teams once and five teams twice before the finals kick off in October. That means some teams will have a tougher fixture list than others, depending on how many elite teams they will be asked to play twice.
Of course, there are many more factors to a draw than the strength of your opponents – especially this year.
Some teams, such as Brisbane, Melbourne, North Queensland and Parramatta, will be playing home games on their usual turf this season, while others will be based in a new city (and in the Warriors' case, a new country) for the early rounds at least.
