    PNG Superleague

    Good to see the game n PNG developing further. No not a breakway league but a second division alligned with Digicell cup to provide a reserve grade level and also opportunity for new clubs to cut their teeth and grow before maybe one day promotion to the top league. The ten teams for the...

    Tongas for the taking?

    On the back of the australian and nz decision, and presuming nrl players can actually play in it, that opens up a number of players for other nations if they want to go. Tonga could be big beneficiaries. Just look at their potential starting pack! 8. David Fifita 9. Siona Katoa 10. Addin fonaua...

    Richardson proposes drastic redesign of European RL

    Sounds like SL2! The one-time Super League board member and NRL head of strategy has revealed more details of a paper he put together for a proposed overhaul of British rugby league, at the heart of which is the establishment of an independent commission to run the game, as happens in...

    Matty Johns Face to Face

    What's peoples thoughts on this? Seems to me to be just a cheap filler program. MJ is not a great interviewer and the last two weeks has been the Storm GM talking about Union and some jockey talking about horse racing. On a RL show!!

    First Coaching Casualty

    Seems a bit harsh given he was always on a hiding to nothing with a small salary budget and no time to build a squad. Rovers did their ex coach Chester a huge favour with Wakefield picking up their first win that probably saved his job this month. Leigh Centurions former boss John Duffy has...

    Academy Farce

    Only the RFL would think that stopping clubs that want to run elite Jnr programs is somehow going to make the professional game stronger! Whole thing has been farcical and should cost Rimmer his job. Good to see clubs that have been shafted fighting back. RFL Statement: Elite Academy Licences...

    Wests Tigers take over bid

    Somehow missed this news at end of lat week. Elias the face of a consortium trying to buy majority share holding in Tigers. He was on nrl360 this evening talking about it. Tony Sage had Elias front a possible Perth bid in 2013, could Sage be the money man behind the bid? If not who is...

    Player Depth

    So always a contentious one, is there enough players to expand? Leaving aside that better player development pathways would undoubtedly mean yes, how about a team that could kick off next year from players that either cant make first team at moment or injuries or form has seen them promoted this...

    Time for a radical rethink on the penalty system?

    With all the debate about bans and no charges it might be a good time to consider a radical rethink on a very traditional penalty system. With the game being all about entertainment and eyes on TVs to generate its revenue is our current system of sitting out players for fouled play a smart...

    Matty Johns F2F

    Anyone watch it? Leaving aside my dislike of Vlandys and his embarrassing answers for a supposed national game, I thought it was pretty poor. Johns looked out of his depth. awkward, overwhelmed and the questions were all very benign. Maybe it will get better when he interviews ex players and its...

    League life gone

    After being canned in covid year I was hoping it would be back this year but it’s slot has been replaced with yet another matty johns show. I know it’s cost cutting but league life was always a good watch and came from a different perspective. Interestingly it was also the only RL show my wife...

    $1million forwards, are they worth it?

    Watching cowboys and Titans yesterday can’t help but question if spending $1mill on a forward is wise, especially the way the game is going with its speeding up? Traditionally the best forwards have been at around the 60-70% salary value of the star backs. Is it worth spending such a big chunk...
