The Travellers and Food Lovers Guide to Rugby League – Heidelberg

By Daniel Andruczyk The last several years I have had the fortunate opportunity to live and work overseas, namely in Germany. My passion for Rugby League found me travelling all over Europe to watch the greatest game and in one case even managed to participate in a tournament. So I have decided to write blogs on my experiences, the travel, food and cities I experienced and share some photos. This month I look at a...

Oh How Easy it is to forget History

By Daniel Andruczyk I bought the other day the Australian Rugby Leagues “A Century of Rugby League” 4-DVD set. I watched it in great anticipation that I would get a great overview of not just Internationals and the NRL but Rugby League in Australia as a whole.

It is time to stop revolting?

By Daniel Andruczyk This weekend apparently saw a “whole bunch of average” games in the NRL. Well so it was claimed by several commentators on the radio. Apparently the play was terrible, the referees were terrible, it was stated that this has been the worst season in a long time in terms of quality rugby league and something needs to be done to “Fix it”?

The 12 Year Master Plan

By Daniel Andruczyk The latest blog comes on the back of a discussion I had with a avid rugby league fan in New Zealand. Its also a re-vamp of last years series of blogs on the 4 ways to fix International Rugby League. Originally I did this back in 2007 before the World Cup where there was a 10 year plan, it was in answer to what Richard Lewis and the “RLIF” had announced at the time with the lead up to the 2013...

It’s time to go…

By Daniel Andruczyk Queensland have won an unprecedented 5 straight Origin series, but what does this mean for the whole concept? Yes, yes, I know that I have been calling for Origin to be abolished in its current form for a while now. But this post is one with a twist on this theme. How you may ask, well its simple the age old rugby league attitude to teams that keep winning series upon series upon series. With...

For Once Lets Think Outside of the Box.

By Daniel Andruczyk Last week Steve Mascord broke the news that the Samoan Rugby League have approached the RLIF about hosting an international 9s competition. Steve also mentioned that the RLIF are thinking of having and international circuit like in the Union 7s but that the NRL and ESL clubs releasing players was the big issue. I just shook my head at this. Steve even you should have seen how we can do this...
