The July 2006 edition of Rugby League Review has hit the stands and here's what's in store this month:
Nothing like home for the Storm
When it comes to home ground advantage, Melbourne's Olympic Park is by far the hardest ground for the visitors side to come away with the two competition points.
Since the NRL was formed in 1998, the same year that Melbourne Storm entered the competition, there have been 105 matches played in Melbourne (including Melbourne Cricket Ground and Colonial Stadium), with the Storm winning 73 matches.
Cronulla's Secret Success
The Cronulla Sharks' incredible season has been attributed to their discipline which is the best in the NRL. The Sharks have conceded only 70 penalties in the opening 16 rounds for an average of five penalties per game.
After a slow start to the season, the Sharks have crept up on the other sides and have become a genuine contender for the premiership.
Jim Beam Cup to be Televised
The Jim Beam Cup competition has been given a huge boost with the news that the competition will be shown on Fox Sports from next month.
Power Productions will be putting the one hour show together with the first screening to be aired on August 9.
Trans-Tasman Rugby League Cup
NSW Country went down 32-18 to a fired-up New Zealand Residents side in the final of the competition held at the impressive Rotorua International Stadium. Rugby League Review was over in Kiwi land to bring you all the latest from the tournament.
