THE historic achievement of having all three Queensland-based clubs in this year’s NRL finals series is another show of strength from rugby league’s heartland. After the Broncos and Cowboys created history last year with the first-ever all-Queensland grand final, and the Maroons’ astounding run of success in State of Origin with 10 series wins in

IT was an iconic round of applause that convinced Canberra legend Gary Belcher that the Raiders were back. Before their Round 24 clash with Parramatta at Canberra Stadium, more than 18,000 Raiders fans inspired their team with a local version of the “Thunderclap” war chant made famous by Iceland’s national soccer team during the Euro

A BLOSSOMING Michael Morgan is in the box seat to become Australia’s long-term No.6 after earning his first Kangaroos jersey in the trans-Tasman Test against New Zealand.

QUEENSLAND coach Kevin Walters has challenged his Maroons to step up another notch in this year’s State of Origin series to cover for the loss of injured fullback Billy Slater. In a devastating blow for Slater, who missed most of last season after a shoulder reconstruction in June, the Melbourne Storm star has been told

THE reduced interchange rule has delivered the NRL the best start to a season in a decade, according to former Queensland captain Trevor Gillmeister. Among a host of rule changes introduced this season was the reduction of the number of interchanges to eight, and the introduction of “shot clocks” to prevent teams wasting time before

IT was the toughest call of his coaching career. But while Paul Green agonised over passing up the Queensland job, the Cowboys' premiership-winning mentor insists he still dreams of coaching the Maroons. When Queensland Rugby League hierarchy needed a successor for the incomparable Mal Meninga, Green seemed the obvious choice. He was smart, had played

LOCATION THE KEY FOR COWBOYS TITLE DOUBLE

GEOGRAPHY could be North Queensland’s greatest asset in the Cowboys’ chase to become the first team in nearly a quarter of a century to win back-to-back premierships. That’s the opinion of former premiership-winning forward Scott Sattler, who was asked by fogs.com.au to cast his eye over the vastly changed NRL landscape and give his predictions

“RUGBY league was the winner”. For so long, it has just been an overworked sporting cliché. But the all-Queensland NRL grand final between the Cowboys and Broncos showed that sometimes clichés, and sporting dreams, can come true. Canberra’s maiden premiership win over Balmain in 1989 has always been held up as the benchmark for grand

A SEASON FOR THE TRUE BELIEVERS

2017-07-19T10:48:19+00:00 September 28th, 2015|All, NRL|

RESPECTED journalist and former coach Roy Masters summed it up in his column in the Sydney Morning Herald: “As the past decade of State of Origin matches has demonstrated, God is a Queenslander”. While those of us north of the border have always known that to be true, this year’s all-Queensland NRL grand final between
