It’s come along way since the legendary Eddie Waring used to commentate on the odd dour match (when the Beeb had nothing else to show on a Saturday).
Rugby league’s Super League is now all glitz, glamour and showmanship, just like every other professional sport. Difference is, it’s still as rough, tough and totally uncompromising as it ever was.
This is a hard game for hard men. And Saturday’s season opener is set to be a monumental ding-dong. Defending champs Leeds versus Hull KR – what a mouth-watering prospect. If you’re not into rugby league, tune in for this one – we’re pretty sure you’ll soon be hooked.
