The NRL in 2008 gets underway with a stack of trial games around the country, as the NRL takes the game to bush and promotes it against strong rival codes. The bush is regularly forgotten as a Rugby League breeding ground and as the AFL continues to push hard into the western states and the remote areas – the NRL and Rugby League in general needs to keep working hard to increase popularity.
