Rugby is a very popular contact sport in Australia. It is a game which attracts a lot of spectatorship, fan emotions and bets.
The origins of the sport being played in Australia can be traced back to the New South Wales Rugby League in 1908.
Aussie love for this sport slowly picked up momentum since then and the game in its current format with the National Rugby League at the helm of affairs commenced only in 1998.
The NRL’s major rugby event and tournament title came to be called the Telstra Premiership because of the Telstra Corporation’s sponsorship to the league.
CrownBet is also a major sponsor of the league but does not have naming rights.
The tournament has 16 clubs competing for the premiership title and is held between March and October of every year.
