About Us

Serious About Rugby League originated from a small Facebook group made up of around 100 members in 2013. From this we decided to start a new website www.seriousaboutrl.com where members of the group would contribute with their opinions on the great game of Rugby League.

As the site started to get more visitors we set up a Facebook and Twitter page for the website which helped to generate more visitors. When starting anything you always get those one or two people willing to help more and in this case Betting Expert Paul Redhead and Australian Rugby League Journalist Trev Smith were those guys.

Both helped me to grow the website and social media pages with Paul providing brilliant weekly Betting Tips, while Trev set up Serious About Rugby League Australia, helping us to grow down under. We have recruited more people along the way such as Dan Fowler, who provides us with unrivalled weekly previews and reviews for all Championship matches.

Our ambition is to continue to grow and provide Rugby League fans with a different view of the greatest game. Sponsors such as Xamax Clothing and Avalon Tours have been a great help since coming on board and this has allowed us to share our brand, supporting the emerging Chilean Rugby League team and the Grass Roots of the sport in the shape of Bolton Mets RLFC.
