Have a look at this!

By Daniel Andruczyk First up, A big thanks to Jovan Vujesovic for showing me this and allowing me to write something about it! The Challenge Cup weekend and the RLEF AGM threw up a lot of things to consider and ponder. I got to meet members from all the European nations playing Rugby League, I got to sit in Club Wembley to watch the game and I also was able to go to the post game function and meet the players.

Putting Your Money Where your Mouth is.

By Daniel Andruczyk Often I read on various sources people complaining about this and that subject. In particular I pay most attention to the International Game, and how its image and exposure can be improved. Very often I have come across people that have great ideas, but seem not to take any initiative to try and get them off the ground. Sometimes if someone wants to support the international game or a nation its...

Science and Sport Together.

By Daniel Andruczyk Over the last few years I have been privileged to meet many people in Rugby League. Whether they are players administrators or just crazy fans who love the game and will follow it anywhere, I certainly fall under that last category.

Heartbreak Hodgson does it for Wolves

By Daniel Andruczyk Over the years as a fan you develop a relationship between teams and players. One that I have a love hate one with is Brett Hodgson. So he is a great guy, I have met him a couple times over the years and he always seems to have all the time in the world to chat with you, win lose or draw. Saturday evening was no exception to this. But, goodness me, he is always on the team opposed to the one I...

A Great Time of Year

By Daniel Andruczyk A few comments today on some things that have been going on the last week and that I want to comment on. Yes the new NRL broadcast deal has been announced, but i will not talk about that today. Recently the Canberra Stadium has been announced as a Test venue for next years mid-season game.
