Castleford Tigers

Castleford Tigers must remain wary of fellow SL challengers

 

Castleford Tigers are the team to beat in Super League this season, with it looking increasingly likely that Daryl Powell’s side are coming of age and are set to dominate in 2017, which would be a fantastic achievement for the club – who have not picked up a major trophy since winning the Challenge Cup during the 1985/86 campaign.

Cronulla Sharks

Could Cronulla Sharks become the first club to defend their NRL title since 1998?

 

The 2016 NRL season was a great success for Cronulla Sharks, who picked up their first Premiership title since the club’s formation in the 1960s. In the process, the Sharks proved that nothing is impossible, after rising from ‘wooden spoon’ receivers in 2014, to champions just two years later. Shane Flanagan’s side are now looking to create another piece of history, as they aim to become the first side to successfully defend their title since Brisbane Broncos picked up back-to-back Premiers in 1997 and 1998.

Gaming companies sponsoring Rugby Teams

 

Date: 5/8/16

Gaming companies sponsoring Rugby Teams is common these days. People now expect that kind of thing with football teams, but it seems that they are going to have to start expecting it with rugby teams as well. Gaming companies are now sponsoring a wide range of different sports teams because it makes sense for them to do so, and the exact sport really doesn't matter for the gaming companies. One sports team is as good as any other. The gaming companies are able to get the exposure and the marketing that they want and need. The sports teams are able to get the funding that they need. It is a genuinely good situation for everyone involved.
