SATURDAY AFTERNOON FIXTURES: THE AUSTRALIAN reported the NRL "is set to announce a return to Saturday afternoon football over the closing six weeks of the regular season as it looks to combat a recent dip in crowd numbers." The schedule for the remainder of the season will be announced Thursday and the NRL "is believed to have locked in five Saturday afternoon fixtures." Two of the games are earmarked for New Zealand, but the rest "will be played in Australia." It is understood if the move proves successful, it "could be implemented in the schedule on a more permanent basis for next season" (THE AUSTRALIAN, 7/4).
