    Hey, friends!
    Quick question - does anyone know why the Highlanders have been getting each of the Friday games thus far? Won't this weekend make four in a row? What gives?
    Thanks!
    -Dave

    Coincidence? Probably maybe.

    It does seem like they have a disproportionate about of Friday games this year, hopefully someone has some insight.
    Pulling a theory out of my ass, it might be because the Highlanders come from a University town, and Friday night games might sell proportionally more tickets there?

    South African teams seldom play on Fridays, again it's possible they have actuaries running some numbers on when people are more likely to attend which stadiums.

    It’s weird, right? I looked ahead and it’s about half their fixtures, that seems very intentional...
