NRL Clubs gear up for Season 2007
The teams have hit the training fields, the new signings have arrived, and nearly half the teams have new coaches, but which NRL teams have best prepared for the 2007 season? Rugby League Review looks at how each team is travelling and what we can expect from them in 2007.
Australia Wins Tri-Nations Final
Australia regained the Tri-Nations Cup with a 16-12 triumph after a sensational golden point try in the 87th minute from Darren Lockyer thanks to a superb 40-metre break by Johnathan Thurston, who stepped inside Frank Pritchard and David Kidwell.
The only losers were the Sydney public that failed to show up to one of the most memorable matches seen this season. In the end, more than 27,000 turned up for the final but it was a game that should have easily had the ?full-house? sign up.
Greece is the Word
Not many would have believed that Rugby League would be played in Greece, especially after they had no organised Rugby Union. In all, eight local players were part of the first Greek side to play an International in Greece while Serbian-based Haris Djac also pulled on the Greek jersey also.
Jim Beam Cup to have 12 teams in 2007
The 2007 Jim Beam Cup will conduct a 12-team competition with Mounties, Chester Hill, Seven Hills and Shellharbour all making their debuts next season.
The only side missing that participated in the 2006 premiership will be the Newtown Jets, who pulled out due to financial reasons.
