NRL Social: Pride in league and #MAFS

#MAFS takes over the NRL

Married At First Sight, or #MAFS as it’s known via the hashtag, is the reality TV show that NRL players can’t stop talking about. So it was no surprise to see Cronulla Sharks’ halfback Chad Townsend post this photo of him and #MAFS star, Troy Delmege.

Former teammate and now Panther James Maloney didn’t miss a beat though, bagging Townsend over Twitter. 

And while Matt Moylan claims he’s not a fan of the show, he knows he would HATE to be married at first sight to: 

Manly’s Tom and Jake Trbojevic also happily posed with cast members from the show. 

Taka Note?

Jarryd Hayne had some fun with Brad Takairangi and on Twitter. After Takairangi kicked a 40/20 during their trial win over Newcastle, he was quick to make a joke that Corey Norman and Mitch Moses will need to be taking notes! Hayne thought it was hilarious!

Pride in League 

Joel Thompson recently declared ''for the NRL, change starts with us'' and he backed up his statement proudly celebrating the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras in Sydney on Saturday night, as the NRL continues to support "Pride in League".

With his wife Amy, he marched alongside former players Wendell Sailor, Dene Halatau and Ian Roberts. Look our for the full video recap right here on NRL.com.

 

Happy Birthday, Dad!

We here at the NRL wish West Tigers Coach Ivan Cleary a happy birthday and his son Nathan was quick to wish his dad a heartfelt message.

''Big happy birthday to the old boy, could never ask for a better role model,'' the halfback tweeted. 

 

Inception 2.0?

Greg Inglis headed down to Redfern and posted a selfie in front of the massive mural emblazoned across Cleveland Street. The mural features in the latest NRL commercial. Can you spot it? On that, make sure you hashtag #HowWeLeague all throughout the season so we can see all your fan photos!

Who knows, maybe you'll end up right on this site! 

 

Amazing art work @sidtapia @ssfcrabbitohs #howweleague

Some things are bigger than rugby league, as this Instagram post from Keith Galloway proves. Former Tigers players including James Tedesco and Mitch Moses got together with the current and former squad over some pizza and pasta last week, proving that friendship runs deeper than footy. 

 

Good catch up with some of the old Tigers crew

And as Matt Moylan pointed out earlier, Fifita can indeed be a pest! Here he is over the weekend pranking none of than his captain Paul Gallen. What next? 

Storm Pride

And lastly, Melbourne Storm fullback Billy Slater stepped out with his stunning wife Nicole as they celebrated the Storm's 20-year anniversary.

''Celebrating 20 great years of The Melb Storm. A place with so much culture, passion and success for such a young club. Always great seeing old mates. #purplepride#gratefultobehere''
