THE FRONT ROW - 2021 ROUND 5: Volume 2 Issue 5

OUT NOW - this week it's Penrith v Canberra so we look at the competition leaders with second rower Kurt Capewell, while we also share the story of the birth of the Glebe Dirty Reds, and as always, the full program for the coming weekend's action across NRL, NSWRL and QRL with a wrap-up of the weekend just gone.

Paul Jobber's piece focuses on Capewell and his side's defensive prowess after conceding only 16 points so far in 2021, while Andrew Ferguson gives a detailed recount of how the Glebe club was born over 100 years ago.

The full Round 5 NRL program is in there as well, with teamlists and officials for NSWRL and QRL competitions, as well as a full wrap of last weekend's results from around the country and the UK's Super League and Championship competitions. Happy reading!
