    I watch games there all the time. No commentary but the tunes are great and they will switch on the tv nearest to your seat.

    It's a fun place.

    You have to make sure you book a table in the bar area though. Upstairs doesn't have TVs.

    Singapore Boomarang Sports Bar and Grill. Heaving and great atmosphere for origin.

    On weekends had around 10 HD tvs and so you can separate yourself from the victards and their melees and watch your game in peace.

    Food ok but pricey but that is Singapore.

    Ended up in some dodgy place called star bar on George street, big screen and good atmosphere but had the weirdest decor! A planet of the apes monkey and something I can only describe as a very poor look a like naked, bar a vine, Sylvester Stallone mannequin lol!

    Every bar is pricey in Singapore! The Irish pub in Clarke quay normally has nrl games on as well.

    Watched SOO in Seville Spain at the Irish bar on the river over near one of the 2 Bridges. Was a few Aussies in there. Anywhere in Europe that has Sky Sports on their menu really. Pissed by 2pm winning!

    Because weather delayed flight getting in, taxi driver was a league fan and put his foot down so I could get into the hotel and quickly out in time bless him. Then it was a case of first place I came across as it was kicking off time. Just made it lol.

    That would make sense, though if that was the quality of the theme’ing I can see why they went bust!

    A friend of mine got yelled at by the barman at Surlys for cheering too loud during the 6pm game a few months ago. We up sticks and walked to the Shakespeare which was packed with league fans - another great league pub.

    I don’t know if it’s been brought up, but I’m currently at the Newmarket Hotel in Mascot for a friends birthday drink. This place wins hands down. It has multiple massive plasmas, a projector in the front bar (where they keep the blinds down and it’s crystal clear) and the cherry on top is an enormous sportsground replay board sized video screen in the beer garden. All HD, sound on loud in the front bar and beer garden.
