NRL

Teams: 16 | Rounds: 26 Thursday, March 3 - Sunday, October 2 2016

League got its start in Australia under circumstances similar to the game's creation in England in the late 1800s. Despite plans to bring Northern Rugby Union (early working name for league) to Australia already in the workings, things came to a head when New South Wales representative Alex Burdon was refused compensation for his time off work after breaking his arm. Despite the threat of lifetime expulsion to both clubs and players from the New South Wales Rugby Union, the New South Wales Rugby Football League was created in 1907. The inaugural competition kicked off in 1908. Rugby’s biggest star at the time, Dally Messenger, was signed to play in the new competition, helping the new code's popularity. The rest, they say, is history.

The 1980s and 1990s were times of great transition and upheaval for the game. Several expansions across New South Wales (and then Queensland and beyond) saw league reach beyond Sydney for the first time and begin to leave a genuine imprint across the country. The mid 1990s also saw the Super League war which threatened to destroy the game. More recently, however, league has enjoyed a period of growth and prosperity that has stemmed from the creation of the NRL in 1997. The NRL currently has 16 clubs who battle it out over 26 bone-crunching rounds for a spot in the finals, with the main aim of taking out the grand final.
