The show is filmed in front of a live studio audience,and features NRL players, coaches and administrators.

Meanwhile The Game Plan (NRL) will be replayed in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth on ONE at 10.30pm while Before the Game is repeated in Sydney and Brisbane.

    Who are the administrators who appear on the show? I’ve watched almost every episode …. plenty of players, plenty of former players and plenty of coaches. No administrators though.

    Dissapointing that it won’t be in HD anymore. Might have to watch something else to watch on Thursday nights.

    @Linkin. I assume the reason is they don’t want to canabolise their own audience. 10:30pm is still a respectiable time for a show that (lets face it) will only get a handful of viewers in the ‘other’ code’s states.

    Much better than Nine’s Footy Show which shows close to midnight in the other codes state.

    I wonder what One is going to show in the 8:30pm Thursday slot.

    It will also be interesting to see how NRL Game Plans ratings go when it moves to Ten. Ratings have been less than 100k IIRC.

    I’m not sure about that Linkin-Phoenix, for example I often watch both the NRL and AFL Footy Shows on Thursday nights on Nine.

    @Linkin-Phoenix: You are right of course, but you’re also thinking that these days things at TEN have logic & reason behind them.

    The only thing that doesn’t make sense about this is why they’re replaying BFG & Game Plan late in the opposing cities?

    Why not air them at the same time. People who want to watch the Game Plan aren’t going to be watching Before the Game or vice versa.
