Rugby League is a game played mainly in Straiya, Papua New Guinea, France, Tonga, Fiji, Russia, Lebanon, and incidentally, in the United Kingdom. It is also played in the United States wherever empty stadiums can be found. Founded in the 1890s as a replacement to buggery, Rugby League has produced some of the best athletes and selfie takers in the world. In much of the developed world, Rugby Union is rugby league’s arch-enemy. Rugby League is popular around the world for its fast-paced, high-action play and its support of cats and fuckwits.
The game of Rugby League was created in 1895 when most of the Rugby Union players wanted a rugby code which would let them receive payment every time someone grabbed their gonads in a tackle. This was ok if your job was being upper class or a professional but a bugger if you earned your crust in heavy, manual industry. Many rugby players had switched to playing 'football' or cake decoration classes to cut down on sporting injuries.
As a result, a new organization called Northern Union was established to cater for those who weren't a kicker or a referee. As the ball actually works to the original point of the game of rugby, to score tries, it was instantly popular with working-class English northerners and with Australians. However, it was not popular with the southern English who preferred to stick with 'the Union' . So like Catholics and Protestants, the Holy Church of Rugby went separate ways and anyone caught 'cross coding' (i.e. playing both Union or League rugby) were expelled and had their boots burnt in public as a deterrent.
Overtime the differences between Rugby Union and Rugby League were put down to what really went on in a 'ruck' with accusations from League Players that their southern counterparts were using them as places to pick up 'rough talent'. This was also at the time of Oscar Wilde's trials so jibes that Union players were 'Oscar's Rent Boys' led a bitter split that took nearly a 100 years to be healed.
edit Growth of the Game
In 1906, the Northern Union changed its rules, reducing teams from 15 to 13 a side and replacing the ruck formed after every tackle with the play the ball. This made the game easier to follow, as no one wanted to spend half the game feeling each other up. The act involved a tackled player got to his feet and roll the ball behind him with his foot, was introduced. This change completed the break from the playing rules of rugby union and marked the birth of rugby league as a distinct sport with its own unique rules".
edit Modern Game
Today, the premier rugby league competition is run by the NRL. It has overtaken the now pointless Super League in England and has has become the single place for hard tackling, roof top sessions and Burgess cocks. The NRL is now the top of the game and is impossible to gain access to as a player unless you are a member of the Burgess family or have spent time in the Bennett dudgeon.
edit International Scene
Rugby League is one of the most popular game in the world but success has not come in international games. Most fans see its a pointless and watch origin games in Australia or Big Bang Theory in England, instead.
edit Current Australian Clubs
The NRL currently features at least 16 teams, possibly more. NRL adminstrators aren’t really sure how may teams there are because they once set up a few teams in Adeliade and Perth but haven’t bothered to go over and check their progress. Listed at the bottom of the page are the current teams that we know of.

|Brisbane My Little Ponies||More than many. About 6.||In bed with Uncle Rupert|
|Canberra Ass-rippers||Were good in the late 80s, early 90s. Kind of like Guns N' Roses||Politics is boring|

|Cronulla-Sutherland Nemos||When dogs learn how to speak Ancient Greek (never)||Strong hatred of St. George Dragqueens and Canterbury Puppies.|
|Eastern Suburbs Chickens||Some, or maybe none. Nobody is sure because very few care.||oldest team in nrl|
|Gold Coast Somethings||Nobody cares, divided by zero.||Team plans to fold at least twice through the season.|
|Manly-Warringah Pigeons||Lets say 6.||Everyone hates Manly. The reason they're called Manly is because they're a bunch of homos.|
|Melbourne Snowcones||It's Melbourne, so a good few but lost them because citizens of New South Wales don't like Victoria being good at their sport.||Won a record 3 seasons in a row ('06, '07, '08) while earning an impressive total of 0 points.|
|Newcastle Tin-Men||2||Not very good without Andrew Johns.|
|Chinatown Eels||Probably about five.||Everybody loves to hate the worms. The Devil's favourite team but he bets on everyone else.|
|Penrith Pussies||About 2.||I’ve got nothing|
|South Sydney Wankers||The South Sydney Wankers enjoyed unrivalled success by winning 20 premierships but haven’t won one (or a game) since 1971||Despite this they’ve still attracted investments from international phone-throwing champion Mr. Russell Crowe. Training has since been kept strictly behind closed doors, same as the annual NRL rape-fest. Formerly known as the South Sydney Killer Rabbits, Bunnies & Brusiers.|
|St. George Dragqueens||Won like a bajillion in a row yonks ago.||Is like Elle McPherson, old but pleasing on the eye. Choke weekly. They have done shit since "Fucking Mark" Gasnier left. And now he's back!!!!! should go fuck themselves|
|North Queensland Brokeback Mountain Fuckwits||None. Zip. Zero. Zilch. Will never win anything.||Almost as bad as Cronulla but with arguably the best player in the world. The stadium's western stand is made up entirely of corporate boxes filled with semi-successful local construction workers and their loose daughters/wives. Peasants are only permitted access to the uncovered east stand and grass hills. Known for passionate supporters - attendance figures directly correlate with previous week's win/loss.|
