The Greats of the NRL
The NRL can trace its origins back to 1908 when it was run as a competition for teams in the Sydney area. The current competition was incepted following a dispute known as the Super League War when two separate, top flight divisions were running concurrently. Thankfully, it’s all been settled and we now have the single, National Rugby League to focus on.
16 teams take part and they are made up of 15 sides from Australia plus the New Zealand Warriors who are based across the Tasman in Auckland. The Warriors have yet to win a Premiership but they have been runners up on two separate occasions and they enjoy support in the outright betting markets.
Among the most successful sides in NRL history are the Sydney Roosters who won their 15th Premiership in 2019. The Roosters are among eight Sydney-based teams and, included in that bunch is the best-performing club in the league. The South Sydney Rabbitohs currently lead the way with 21 Premierships but the last of these came in 2014. Both the Rabbitohs and the Roosters are among the popular picks in the outright NRL betting markets but there is plenty of competition at present.
Neither of those great Sydney sides were involved in what many believe was the best NRL Grand Final of all time. We have to go back to 1989 for the game where Canberra Raiders fought back from a 14-2 deficit to overhaul the Balmain Tigers in extra time. More recently, in 2016, another tight game ended with Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks winning their first Premiership after 50 years of trying. The Sharks came through by 14 points to 12 against Melbourne Storm.
More great NRL games await, from the start of the regular season right through to the last play of the Grand Final. Unibet TV is alongside the league all the way with live streams and the support of an active sportsbook with a host of betting opportunities.
