What’s the story, Channel Nine?

Following the Dally M Awards last night, reality is beginning to set in – the 2014 NRL season is coming to a close. We have one more game this weekend to determine who will be crowned Premiers for Season 2014. To all the Canterbury Bulldogs and South Sydney Rabbitohs fans, enjoy this very special week. […]

Tina Turner was, simply the best!

Many thanks to a long time supporter of Ladies who League, the very talented Alex Sarkis for this story today: In 1993, Tina Turner performed live at the NRL Grand Final. I was only five years old but I still remember the hype surrounding that performance. It came as a finale to the NRL’s long […]

NRL fans, we have a job to do!

As a Parramatta Eels fan, for the last couple of years, come September, I often joke that I miss watching Parramatta choke in the finals. This is what happens when your team doesn’t make a Finals series since 2009. September and October are the best time of the year to be an NRL fan, especially […]

Together, with the NRL we can kick bowel cancer!

Following the results over the weekend, most of the NRL community will spend this week discussing the 2 games to be played this weekend wondering who will make it into the Grand Final. Despite the focus on the tremendous football that was played on the weekend, the athleticism of our players and the discussion about […]

Bulldog basher? Not anymore!

As a Parramatta fan it is almost in my blood to absolutely despise the Canterbury Bulldogs as a football team. The Parramatta Eels and the Canterbury Bulldogs have history – many NRL supporters will remember the fierce battles and rivalry between these two teams in the early eighties featuring men like Ray Price, Mick Cronin, […]

Is this the end of delayed coverage?

Isn’t September grand for rugby league fans? I spent the weekend with a massive smile on myself enjoying just about every moment of the 4 games that were played over the weekend. My favourite game had to be between the Sydney Roosters and Penrith Panthers. Both teams played incredible football and to see Jamie Soward […]

Finals Football: Week 1

As I watched the Parramatta Eels go down to the Canberra Raiders on Saturday night, I knew that my team’s season was over. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed, but that disappointment quickly dissipated once I remembered that for Parramatta, even being in contention for Finals Football was quite tremendous, particularly […]

Players we love to hate

Rugby league – it’s a game of drama. We all have our favourite team. We also have our rugby league heroes and in opposition to those heroes we have our rugby league villains. I am a proud Parramatta supporter, but still have many other favourite players from other teams. I admire talent like Jonathan Thurston’s. […]

Belinda Sleeman – you look fab in pink!

When it comes to female participation in the NRL there has been much to celebrate in the past 18 months. Significant achievements include the appointment of Raelene Castle as CEO of the Bulldogs, the appointment of Corene Strauss as Men of League CEO, the appointment of Rebecca Frizelle as the Titans Board Chair and Linda […]
