Almanac Rugby league – The Rugby League Almanac: Media Release

The Rugby League Almanac 2012


Media Release – brilliant fan-writing about the greatest game of all


A classic new footy book, The Rugby League Almanac 2012 (500 pages, Malarkey Publications) is a game-by-game account of the 2012 NRL season.

Nothing like this has been done in rugby league before. It’s a lot of fun.

The Rugby League Almanac is written by people who love rugby league – the fans.

There are over 60 contributors – from all walks of life, spread around Australia (with a few from overseas as well).

This is not just dry factual stuff. This is terrific story-telling about what happened on and off the field whether the fans watched from the hill, the grandstand, the lounge room, the pub, anywhere. It is full of parochial fan celebration and angst, and there’s some insight as well. These writers know their rugby league.

The book includes:

          A 700-word story on each NRL match, including match details

          Multiple reports on the finals

          Stories of the State of Origin matches, and Test match

          Forewords by – Roy Masters, William McInnes, John Stanley, John Harms and Nick Tedeschi

Given the State of Origin series is just around the corner, editors may be interested in running John Harms’s very funny yarn about attending the first State of Origin match in Melbourne last year.
