I don`t know if this has ever been brought up but for years ive always had this thought of a reality rugby league show.

Basically every off season a bunch of guys are selected to go through a trial and the winner gets an nrl contract with a club for a year.I know soccer have done this and i swear ive had this idea for 10 or so years before they thought of it,

The difference would be that they werent just young kids looking for a break it could be all different ages even a 34 year old who sits on the lounge saying he could of been there if he stuck at it. we hear that all the time at the pub dont we? The only stipulation is they obviously cant be signed to play for any club in any grade.

Think of Australian idol as a rugby league show, We could have a coach such as ricki stuart and a panel of ex players who have the final say with the help of public voting of who stays and who goes. And with the help of all nrl clubs actual players joining in some of the challenges..

We can watch episodes of all these guys put through training, challenges and watch the ups and downs of all these guys dealing with the demands of being a nrl player always under public scrutiny.

Im always bored in the off season and i think this would be a way for footy tragics to stay connected or put up and shut up so to speak and give it a go.. plus it is great exposure for all clubs and sponsors involved


i wouldnt know how to get it off the ground but it is sort of based on Australian idol vs ultimate fighter format id love it or am i just bored talking s### you tell me ??????

It was in the paper last year I think I don't know what has happened to it. I know a cricket one is about to air but I swear there was going to be a rugby league one.

Yeah I think it's been in the ideas threads before. To me it wouldn't even have to be a contest realty show, just a "fly on the wall documentary" thing like the one on the Western Bulldogs (Year of the Dogs). Obviously some risks with it though particularly with Carney here.

I think it's a great idea, like The Ultimate Fighter with the UFC. They could get a second tier contract as a prize plus 50 grand in money. Obviously with the NYC etc the applicants are probably only going to be roughies so I think it's unrealistic for the prize to be a top 25 contract.

id crack up watching some of the arm chair players taken down a peg by panel with a grumpy ex player on it like the shocking singers in australian idle, id also like watching the transformation with the help they havent been able to receive in their prime of an old small town pub player getting fit and giving it a red hot go against some youngins

I liked the show we had at the start of the season that just died off. And that 11 series that never happened that we all chipped in for. Can someone PM me with why we never got it please?
