“We have 500 juniors this year, which dwarfs 99 percent of league clubs around here .” And how many league clubs in the region compared to union? Perhaps those 500 are directed into one club compared to perhaps split among several more league clubs? I think there is roughly twice as many RL clubs in the Hunter so your figures can be misleading?

Joseph Suaalii playing NRL before he turns 18 is literally a matter of life and death

yet not verified by any independent source & just repeated by other media outlets not bothered to check facts. From a rugby union website, highly fictitious more like it.

“Where is rugby league played in Greece.?” I’m responding to this comment. Of course there is no NRL type level of RL played in Greece. No one claims that but as a member of the IRLF they have qualified to play following the rules of the governing sport.

Who could dethrone Australia at the next Rugby League World Cup?

Being recognised by governments as an official sport is nudging toward the 30 mark Clip. What is you definition of a sport claiming to be ‘international’. Very broad statement there cos the governing body on their official website certainly don’t claim anything else but what development, incl setbacks, they govern in the sport.
“doesn’t pretend they’re international” you & your ilk are the only ones claiming this of the sport which we all know is just a flimsy excuse for you to hate on the game.
Who will win the rah rah clip? Bet that only takes you 2 secs to list 4 chances lol

stick to domestic NRL then Barry if you have no idea or not even willing to find out. Greece has a domestic comp, they have even been through the Greek legal courts to be recognised. Even if proof was shown I doubt you’d want to believe it. Bad enough having to convince clowns like Clipper

Ahh In brief, lost 1 million viewers to an outdated coverage loathed by atleast a cumulative audience of 1 mil. But no mention in the article that Fox League, Kayo plus other streaming services where NRL viewership is up, perhaps covering the loss of those lost to Nine.

But what would you expect from a SMH journo to not mention the full picture when his bosses are essentially Ch 9 employees. Not one bit of criticism of Nine’s coverage, not an inch. Pretty amazing hey that Nine are so perfect?

NRL may bend the rules in order to sign Joseph Suaalii

Still using my partner’s name hey! you are one sad individual

Sonny Bill Williams in limbo after Toronto quits Super League

Trust you to join in any bad league story. You’re a vulture. Really would be good if you actually knew what you were talking about. Perez has cut ties with the club, has no ownership or involvement in the Wolfpack fyi

You struggle with time lines ” and it did last till WW1.” 1914!

So VFL/AFL was invented by minions of London hey! Where is this ‘Australian’ game using that logic? You AFL fans barely tolerate people of color, Islanders from the Pacific send you into a lather but you cling to this ‘marngook’ fallacy.

What is it, you people are all over the place like your game 😂 😂 😂

Why the NRL can't compete with the AFL in Sydney

AFL fans obsession with people of colour! Heard of the NBA? Millions of white Americans play & follow, now tell me the percentage of African American players in comparison to their population in the US in the NBA?

It’s called selecting the best athletes despite color

most 9 a side on rectangular fields. Plus don’t include RL on large as one of those British sports taken around the world with imperialism. It was actively excluded.

they forget the 2nd Boer War also where Australian soldiers tried to introduce Australia Football? Troops also stationed in Malaysia, Singapore etc where AR was probably less inhibited by the officer class than rugby league at the time

Clipper is another union fan in the mould of Peter Fitzsimmons who has an odd obsession with attacking league through AFL

Why the NRL can't compete with the AFL in Sydney

Also Saturday & Sunday games for AFL the home markets generally get to see their own team on FTA tv. The NRL doesn’t which doesn’t help its ratings.

The rating system can be ogus anyway, they posted ratings for the Essendon v Demons game last Sunday which wasn’t even played lol. Imagine AFL HQ wanting a boost to their ratings, they must have a hot line to the companies lol

Why the NRL can't compete with the AFL in Sydney

Like how AFL fans scandals & controversies of their game go in one ear & out the other but when it comes to the NRL it sticks like mud. I suppose we have our media to thank for that.

I’ve read so many articles on AFL fan violence even the Bulldogs can’t keep up. Even women attacked on more than one occasion, fighting on streets etc but I suppose its the NRL hey.

Still imagine what an NRL player crashing into a vehicle & doing a runner during Covid would create with our rabid media? Did Nathan Cleary’s episode with his friends receive more & longer coverage, hell yes.

And these used to be restricted to Sydney & Brisbane but now we have national services like Sunrise etc which take this bile to the deluded masses. The media has eaten away at rugby league in this country for on 2 decades, that is the only reason there has been an affect on the sport plus hopeless antiquated stadiums. The AFL & its fans are still insecure by the looks of it lol.

Hopefully Vlandy’s will sort out our rubbish agenda driven AFL is a snowflake gift to us media. But bowing to Ch 9 is not a great start.

You sound like a terribly dull person. Who wastes their time on something they don’t like? Dull.

V'landys is out of touch and losing his battle with AFL and rugby

learn that at private school lol?

Inside rugby league's new European comp

Trolls trying to ruin a thread

Inside rugby league's new European comp

Wow you signed up under a new name to say that. Weirdo

Inside rugby league's new European comp

Let’s hope comps like this help break through corporate barriers which are so hard to garner outside Australia for the sport.

I think your views on our sport are worth nothing

“Only the NRL demanded govt assistance” that is false & was reported in the media that the codes all approached the govt. It’s just easier to bash the NRL because there will be a greater reaction from the public.

Media expert casts doubt on Nine's NRL walkaway claims

Aren’t the Dragons now owned by a billionaire & if not that particular family would step in anyway?

Does the next NRL broadcast deal spell curtains for Nine and Fox?

I hear droves of people are trying to cancel their Foxtel subscriptions but can’t due to the fact they can’t get through to an operator. With Kayo, I subscribed on my tv & cancelled on my tv without having to go through the telephone system. I wonder if that is a key reason (aside from no live footy content) Kayo is seeing a large exodus of customers?

Does the next NRL broadcast deal spell curtains for Nine and Fox?

yeah & that was only a few days ago way after the same rules the NRL are supposed to adhere to were put in place so not everything is clear cut & the NRL have every right to explore their options.

V’landys: NRL has official nod for restart
