I dont think you can ever say that Rugby is a dumping ground for lower skilled and slower players. You know that many of the best NRL players were the product of a rugby union upbringing and vice versa for union players.

I am a fan of all four football codes in Australia (plus NFL) but Rugby League is doing its best to alienate its fanbase with moronic off field behaviour and pig headed views of old school commentators and journalists.

If League and Union dont get their acts together soon they are going to be the 3rd and 4th string options behind Soccer and AFL.

I made the switch away from rugby league when Super League broke and I have lost interest in Rugby Union due to the negative approach taken in test matches.

I find myself eagerly awaiting the NFL season and I have more interest in the NFL draft than the start of the Australian Rugby League & Union seasons. The preseason game shown last week was the most anticipated football game for me since the superbowl win.

Over the last 16 years I can honestly say that I have watched more NFL games than both league and union games combined ( and in a way that is sad considering I am a true blue aussie)

Cheers and good luck for the Saints this year in the GF ( hopefully they beat a QLD team on GF day)
It's good to see your into NFL and even better to see you supporting the greatest NFL team of the lot the mighty Pittsburgh Steelers. In my opinion this is what has to happen and soon between rugby union and rugby league for the good of both games.

It's about time rugby union woke up and realized that rugby league is a far better rugby game to play than union and the 2 codes remerged playing rugby league rules with maybe a few concessions givin to rugby union rules. That way the game could get to where it should be rivaling soccer and gridiron football for the best code in the world.

I prefer union much more than league. League is to broken up with all the stopages. The only time we ever play is as a warm up before games. Why do you think that union would be more popular on the world stage than league?

Union is the bees knees

anyone catch the six nations?

Bloody French and can't believe how the Irish crumbled and fell in their final game against Wales.

England were below par, everyone singing their praises against France but ultimately we lost so what was there to be happy about, yes our D was ok but our O sucked, we couldn't get ten feet without being turned over.

Terrible year for the two teams I follow lol :)
