It began as any normal Tuesday for rugby league fans but by lunchtime a whirlwind of announcements had swept through and turned August 21 into arguably the biggest news day in rugby league history.
Tonight on a jammed-packed NRL Daily we cover all the major stories and deliver you in-depth analysis on the world of rugby league.
First in our daily update we break down the new television broadcast deal that was announced at Rugby League Central this morning and cover all the key points that fans needs to know.
We also look at all the headlines including Brian McClennan leaving the Warriors, Ben Hornby announcing his retirement from the Dragons, Anthony Minichiello pleading not guilty to his striking charge and David ‘Wolfman’ Williams being ruled out for the rest of the season with an injury.
Following the announcement of Laurie Daley as the NSW Origin coach, we talk with NRL Daily host Brad Fittler about what his involvement with the Blues will be next season.
And to top it all off referees co-coach Bill Harrigan takes us through the obstruction rule and helps clarify the decisions from Round 24.
