Believe the hype, it’s very hot. And windy. Not exactly ideal conditions for rugby league.
The hottest temperature recorded so far today is actually in Penrith, with the triple peat craving helping to push it above 37 degrees Celsius, but it is above 35 at ground today.
The State Championship has just finished and the NRLW Knights and Titans (from 3:55pm AEDT) should catch the worst of it, but don’t be surprised if we see some players cramping late in the decider tonight’s NRL.
