THE FRONT ROW - 2021 ROUND 7: Volume 2 Issue 7

OUT NOW - the ANZAC Round edition of The Front Row shares stories of rugby league's wartime heroes from a century ago. As always, we have the full program for the coming weekend's action across NRL, NSWRL and QRL with a wrap-up of the weekend just gone.

This week Andrew Ferguson, LeagueUnlimited contributor, RugbyLeagueProject co-founder and rugby league writer & historian looks at the lives of two key rugby league figures in the early years - Queensland pioneer Duncan Thompson and Newcastle's founding father Stan Carpenter.

Add in the match program, results and teamlists from around Australia and a look at the UK - you've got a fantastic addition to your NRL match experience.
