The National Rugby League, most commonly known as the NRL, features clubs from up and down the eastern coastline of Australia, with the city of Sydney featuring the most clubs.
The competition is also home to the Warriors, based in the New Zealand capital city of Auckland and as the top flight competition in the Asia-Pacific region, many games are taken ‘on the road’ to rural areas, across the country to the west coast and throughout New Zealand.
The NRL is the top flight Rugby League club competition in Australia and New Zealand and acts as the head of a vast pyramid of leagues across Australia and with clubs from New Zealand, Fiji, and Papua New Guinea.
Whilst most of the clubs historically have come from the city of Sydney and from Brisbane, expansion has seen the emergence of clubs from Victoria, Canberra, across Queensland and across the Tasman Sea.
The league was established out of the burning embers of the disastrous Super League wars which saw a rival league started up by the media empire New Corporation to challenge the historic ARL competition.
Regional leagues in Australia had been running from 1908 but after the Super League era of the sport showed that a national competition could be successful and was the way forward, the National Rugby League was established in 1998.
The new competition featured some historic clubs, some of the newer breakaway clubs from the wars, some expansion clubs, and some merged sides in what was the biggest shake up of the sport down under since the formation of the code.
Nowadays, the sport has gone from strength to strength and features many of the best supported Rugby sides of either codes playing in front of huge crowds on a weekly basis and as you would expect, the finances of the league allows then to sign up the best players from across the globe and helps them to attract stars from other codes.
The biggest change to the leagues structure for quite some time came in 2022, when the decision for the first expansion of the NRL is around a decade was put in to action with a number of clubs and groups from across Australia and New Zealand bidding for a place in the sports leading club competition.
In the end it was the proposal put forward by the Redcliffe Dolphins, who are based to the north of the city of Brisbane in the state of Queensland, who were chosen to take their place in the NRL where they would simply be known as The Dolphins.
