The face of Rugby League and the features that fit!

I have always considered Anthony Minichiello to be the ‘true’ face of rugby league prior to the National Rugby League making it official on 11 February 2014.  Having had the pleasure of meeting Anthony in 2004 spontaneously, he’s a wonderful speaker, kind, polite and genuinely happy to talk about the game – in an objective […]

NRL fans, this is my call to you!

NRL fans, the 2014 season is nearly upon us and I hope you are all as excited as I am to have the magic return! Unfortunately, this season I’m looking forward to watching the games in solitude, in the privacy of my own home, rather than out with other fans. Why? Because in short, NRL […]
