The reality of rugby league’s romanticised suburban grounds

The reality of rugby league's romanticised suburban grounds

5 days ago

Sitting on the hill cheering on your team at the local suburban ground is a grand old rugby league tradition.

How long will the NRL devalue its own competition?

A late season run to the finals saved face from a embarrassing season after so much hype and expectations. Now it’s back to reality and […]

If NRL fans don't show up to finals, what will they show up to?

15 Sep 2013

21,609 was the attendance figure between reigning premiers Melbourne Storm and the South Sydney Rabbioths. The ‘Pride of the League’ always boast about how many members they have and when ‘Souths is going well, league is going well’ apparently that isn’t the case with crowd numbers being down this year. After years of not qualifying […]
