Every NRL game is equal, but this round, some are more equal than others

Every NRL game is equal, but this round, some are more equal than others

8 hours ago

The final round of the NRL this coming weekend features eight games, all of which will have a massive influence on the ladder, the top eight and the final series. OK, I may have just told a little white lie, for a couple of the games will have less of an impact than me punching […]

Another week, another controversy in rugby league. Wow, what a shock. Is there anything more dependable than counting on the NRL to produce some type of drama, be it on the field or off? It’s like clockwork. In fact, the famous saying should be altered to ‘death, taxes and rugby league controversy’. Last week it […]

11 Aug 2014

After 10 rounds of the NRL the Bulldogs were sitting atop the competition ladder, fully deserving of all the kudos coming their way.
