Rugby League Review Oct 2006 - Out now!
The October 2006 edition of Rugby League Review has hit the stands and here's what's in store this month:
BRISBANE BRONCOS CAPTURE THEIR SIXTH PREMIERSHIP
The Brisbane Broncos captured their sixth premiership from as many starts after beating Melbourne Storm 15-8 in the 2006 NRL grand final at Telstra Stadium.
The Broncos have answered their critics in the best possible way after losing five matches in-a-row towards the end of the premiership rounds to capture the ultimate prize. Read all the latest on the NRL grand final.
AUSTRALIA PREPARES FOR THE TRI-NATIONS
The Australians are preparing to win back the Tri-Nations trophy which was won by New Zealand last year.
The Kangaroos will take on Great Britain and New Zealand in the tournament which gets underway on October 14. We have all the latest on the Tri-Nations.
OCEANIA WORLD CUP QUALIFIERS GET UNDERWAY
A fantastic try-saving tackle by Samoan full-back Tangi Ropati on a flying Daryl Millard helped give Samoa a 30-28 win over Fiji in a wonderful, hard fought game at Campbelltown Stadium.
Tonga had no trouble in thrashing Cook Islands 56-14 after leading 30-4 at the interval. Find out all the latest on the World Cup qualifiers.
JOHN SKANDALIS TO SKIPPER GREECE
John Skandalis will make his long awaited international debut when he pulls on the Greek jersey for the Greece vs Fiji A match at Oki Jubilee Oval on Saturday, October 7.
Skandalis, who finished his NRL career last month, will head over to England in 2007 to link up with the Huddersfield Giants. He was expected to make his debut for Greece in 2003 when they took on Italy but pulled out of the squad after he was named in the Australian Kangaroos train-on squad.
Skandalis missed out on getting the call-up to the Kangaroos and will make up for that disappointment when he runs out wearing the Greek jersey as captain.
