http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rugby_league

In rugby league points are scored by carrying or kicking the ball down the field, until it can be moved past the opponents' designated goal line and touched to the ground; this is called a try, and is the primary method of scoring.[5] The opposing team attempts to stop the attacking side gaining points by preventing their progress up the field by tackling the player carrying the ball.[5] In addition to tries, points can be scored by kicking goals. After each try, the scoring team gains a free kick to try at goal with a conversion for further points.[5] Kicks at goal may also be awarded for penalties, and field goals can be attempted at any time during general play.

Actually I was screwing with you.. I know it and I sorta like it too.. and in an indirect way I use scrum (kanban) :D

I however do not get any telly coverage over here so do not get to watch it.

(And I like NFL too.. american football).

Only american game I cannot ever become a fan to is baseball.. I like the rest.

I will go with your pick.. pick your teams most looked forward to rivals.

Wait..I am missing all the action.. some webcast links pliss.. my plessings will be ineffective unless I send it with proper target locking.. I have to see the target to lock on it...it's BVR capabilities are quite suspect I am afraid.

The Cowboys should do their preseason like other teams it takes them half a season to get going.

OK it's hot up there in the off season teams like Canberra are way ahead of them then get worse as the season goes on.

Souths look tired already and I hope Penrith go well this year also the Broncs.
