Lift and you’re gone – NRL finally gets tackle laws right

Lift and you’re gone – NRL finally gets tackle laws right

15 hours ago

The NRL finally got it right on Wednesday by declaring war on defenders who lift opponents in tackles. Mandatory suspensions will now be meted out to those who place the ball carrier in a dangerous position. It is about time. League fans can only hope the code’s match review committee heeds the words of Todd […]

Plenty of signs that the Storm is abating

Plenty of signs that the Storm is abating

I have made some predictions this NRL season and all are going reasonably well at the five-round mark.

News that Englishman James Graham had signed on with the Bulldogs for another four years was massive, probably bigger than many realise. I believe Graham is one of the best English imports we have ever seen in […]

Dear David: The NRL kickoff was limp when it should have been sublime

Dear David: The NRL kickoff was limp when it should have been sublime

12 Mar 2014

Dear David Smith, CEO of the Australian Rugby League Commission (and the NRL): Hundreds of thousands of us, maybe even a million or three, ambled through the summer months confident we would see and enjoy a spectacular opening to season 2014. Many clubs and their loyal fan-bases had built up in the hope of improving […]
