The August 2006 edition of Rugby League Review has hit the stands and here's what's in store this month:
Who can stop the Bulldogs?
It's a good time to be talking about the Bulldogs. They are currently sitting in second place on the ladder, having enjoyed a week off thanks to the bye.
They disposed of the Sydney Roosters in splendid fashion the round prior, holding the Bondi Junction club to zero points, a feat that hadn't been achieved for 313 first grade games.
Dragons lead the way with Club Memberships
Rugby League needs to take a leaf out of St George Illawarra's books when it comes to promoting memberships.
There have always been many critics quick to point out that Aussie Rules matches attract average crowds of more than 30,000. The reason the AFL clubs are successful and drawing the crowds is that they promote their game through memberships.
ABC would consider showing Premier League
The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) has admitted that they would consider showing the Premier League on television if they were given the green light.
ABC Television Sports programmer Ian Knight told Rugby League Review that they made an approach to the New South Wales Rugby League.
CALLS FOR A PACIFIC XIII SIDE IN THE TRI-NATIONS
PAPUA New Guinea Rugby Football League Chairman Sir Bob Sinclair has urged the Rugby League International Federation (RLIF) to include a Pacific Islands side in future Tri-Nations competitions.
Sinclair believes that such a side would be great for the international game with the likes of Tonga, Samoa, Cook Islands, Fiji and Papua New Guinea able to draw on many players that would give them a formidable side.
