NRL 2014

NRL Betting - 6 March - 5 October 2014


NRL

When reggae legend Jimmy Cliff sang the immortal words: ‘The harder they come, the harder they fall’ he was singin’ about notorious Jamaican criminal Ivanhoe Martin, but it might as well’ve been about the NRL. It’s bone-breakingly good – the ultimate marriage of muscle and agility. Sixteen clubs – 15 from the Australian eastern seaboard and one from New Zealand – battle it out through 26 rounds to reach the playoffs and, ultimately, the Grand Final in October. It’s pace vs power, guts vs grit and brawn vs brains. Well… maybe not too many brains.

Over recent years, attempts to clean the game up have led to a spate of rule changes. The little guys now stand more of a chance and the upshot is that NRL 2014’s faster than ever. Sure, the high shots lack malice and punches spell time on the bench, but no rules will stop these hotheads from punchin’ on when the mood strikes them. Since 1998, only four clubs have failed to win a minor premiership or premiership, making NRL betting some of the best around, no matter where your loyalties lie.

NRL BBQ Facts

  • The NRL is the most watched and attended Rugby Football competition in the world.
  • In 1967, the then-named NSWRFL Grand Final was the first football Grand Final of any code to be broadcast live in Australia.
  • Overachievers Melbourne Storm had three minor premierships (2006-2008) and two premierships (2007 & 2009) stripped for breaches to the NRL salary cap.

What happened in the 2013 NRL?

Outside of the Cronulla Sharks’ supplements scandal, all eyes were on South Sydney’s Rabbitohs, who looked set to win their first premiership since 1971, only to fall to eventual grand finalists Manly in the penultimate week. The NRL odds favoured a red-hot Sydney Roosters team for the season decider, and the tri-colours ended up emphatic winners at 26-18 over Manly on the day.
