Rugby League is the dominant football code in Queensland and New South Wales and the NRL is one of the fastest growing sporting competitions in the world. The future of Rugby League looked in doubt when the Super League War tore the game apart in the late 1990s, but the code has bounced back extremely well in the last decade and their TV ratings are superior to that of any other code in Australia.
The NRL was the first major sporting code in Australia to fully embrace sports betting and the money turned over on NRL games continues to grow every single season. Head to Head and Line betting remain the dominant markets, but Ladbrokes now offers almost 50 different betting on every NRL game and markets like First Tryscorer have quickly become extremely popular. Ladbrokes have embraced the changing tastes of NRL punters by offering special NRL Footy Freaks betting markets for all NRL games.
It is very rare for a week to pass without a big story breaking in the world of Rugby League and you can stay up to date with all the relevant information you need to conduct NRL betting with the Ladbrokes blog, which offers previews and tips for all 26 rounds of the NRL season.
