NRL Rugby 2009 – Just around the corner

The NRL rugby league is one of the toughest sporting competitions in the world and don't expect anything different in 2009.

Once again Melbourne and Manly will be up there. It will be interesting to see the NRL results St George gets with Wayne Bennett at the helm. They are at 16 to win the whole thing which are healthy NRL league odds.

Once were NRL rugby powerhouses of the 1980s, Parramatta and Canterbury are languishing at 30 and 36 respectively. Both have new coaches in Daniel Anderson and Kevin Moore respectively which probably goes someway behind the disrespectful odds those two have received.

He's not a rookie coach anymore so the honeymoon period is now over for Brad Fittler. They can get very impatient at Bondi Junction when the Roosters sit in the bottom half of the NRL ladder. It is also time for Jason Taylor to deliver NRL results to Redfern. They have been patient. They will be feeling the same way up in North Queensland and on the Gold Coast.

With Melbourne, Manly and Brisbane dominating for the majority of the decade, pretty much every other club wants to break their drought.
