A must listen for any sporting tragic or rugby league fan. A comprehensive overview of the lead up to and progression of the Super League War, excellently researched by two blokes who clearly know and love the game. I recommend this to anyone who’ll listen to me.

You won’t find a more comprehensive look at rugby league, delivered by two more passionate fans of the game, than what you’ll find here. Absolutely top stuff.

As a big rugby league dork, I was so excited to discover this podcast last year. I am almost caught up. Thanks for all of the meticulous research and entertaining discussion.

As someone who was 12 years old during the start of the Super League split, I followed these events with a similar level of interest as the podcasters. Between all the things that rang true, and all the things I never realised at the time, this series has proved a triumph of research, attention...Read full review »

A wonderful, funny, deeply researched, and entertaining look at the history of rugby league and its place in the Australian cultural landscape. And perhaps proof that not all league fans are one-eyed boofheads after all!
NgHow via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/06/21
I’ve just discovered this poddy recently. Excellent analysis. Great to listen to a dispassionate, logical analysis of the events that contributed to the environment that created superleague, and the snipes and egos that resulted in it escalating, almost beyond farce.

Brilliant podcast! It’s the Hardcore History of Rugby league
Thurston lover via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/16/21
Fantastic, professional look back at some of the great moments of modern rugby league. Can’t wait for the next chapter. Go Panthers 🐾🐾

If you’re a student of rugby league... this podcast series is your education of Super League, and the game over the past 30 years...
Canberra Craig via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 02/22/21
I’m a big fan of rugby league and find many podcasts underwhelming for serious discussion about the history of the game and its meaning in our cultural landscape. This podcast is incredibly articulate, thoughtful, fantastically researched, and is full of great insight into the sport. Highly...Read full review »

A truly entertaining podcast that brings back so many memories. Well worth your time.
Butterflyman79 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/17/21
From their earliest weekly review episodes to the current series on the Super League War, Michael and Andy are always informative and entertaining. Michael puts so much effort into the research and it shows. But this is far from a stale sprouting of facts. They find the hidden entertaining...Read full review »

Absolute magic content for any league/sports nerd. The research and work that has obviously gone into each episode is to be admired. Rugby League history recounted with passion, character and humour!
Barnesy796 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/02/20
Excellent podcast, a must for any Rugby League fan that enjoys a well researched look at the game from a historical perspective.
jsparks101 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/29/20
Along with the music of Rush, rugby league digest has got me through Covid whilst thousands of miles away from Aus. A great listen for any fan of the league.
littleshanee via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/18/20
This isn’t like any other podcast. This is an incredible historical record combined with art. It is an absolute must listen for any fan of the game, and even beyond. Incredible work.
Statue Guy via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/18/20
I’m an American that discovered league during COVID-19 lockdown and have loved learning about the culture of the sport in this pod. Their series on the Super League War is fascinating and any sports fan can learn a lot from it about the ways the sports world has changed in the last 25 years.

Well researched and Insightful podcast on rugby league! The lads have great chemistry, there’s opinions but layered w/ facts it makes for a fun listen. Well done.
Goods82 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/19/20
Hi guys, As someone who was born in the ‘90s I only had surface level knowledge of the ‘Super League War’. I have binged your Super League Investigation series and loved the subterfuge and intrigue of the whole saga. Keep up the good work!
Broncophile via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/09/20
Loved the Big O - Patrick Skeene interview, the type of ‘yarn’ you like to have at the pub when talking Rugby League (when they are fully Open). Go easy when you reach the World Club Challenge 😀although my team St Helens did reach the playoffs by only getting beaten by around 20 pts per game...Read full review »
Saintscoop via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/14/20
This is the most important Rugby League podcast out there. The chronicling of the Super League war is brilliantly researched and fascinating to listen to. As a young Rugby League fan who was a child when the war broke I eagerly await the next chapter every week of the wonderfully told story.
ADTR man via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/14/20
My favourite RL podcast. A focus on historical over current RL stories which is what sets it apart and for those of us who’ve followed the game for the last 40 years there’s many great recollections and some good humour too. Mike and Andy present well and are well researched. If you’re looking...Read full review »

It’s like hardcore history, but with slightly less death.

There is simply no better podcast around covering Rugby League history.
Kirky71 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/11/20
Discovered the podcast via YouTube and currently listening to the Super League War. I went to the World Club Challenge Tournament as a teenager (St Helens fan) and I was always intrigued at what happened during the war. I’m so happy that somebody has done a deep dive on this topic. I will listen...Read full review »

Do yourself a favour and catch up with the extensive back catalogue of Michael and Andy’s handy work. Everything from the current super league war series to the history corners. Essential listening for any Rugby League fan.
Cam Watt via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/09/20
First time ive listened to this (31/3/20) and it was very interesting. What’s more surprising is having Aussies who are actually interested in the British game.
Roger Dismal via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/31/20
Fantastic podcast which has entertained and informed me for a long time now. The super league war investigation series is very well researched and structured. A must listen

Really appreciate all the hard work you guys do putting in the hours of research to create this content! There’s a lot of rugby league podcasts out there but nothing like this.
WSFTKP via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/17/20
Start at the prelude to super league war ep and go from there . Amazing research !
Edgevillies via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/28/20
The level of research in this podcast is superb, keep up the great work guys. Even if you can’t keep up with the weekly pace it’s always worth the wait!
AndyM73 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/25/20
Excellent podcast guys for the true league fans out there like myself
lamb is god via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/12/20
Brilliantly researched reminder of a time that came and went and then left its mark. Well done guys. What struck me is the human behaviour aspect of each episode. How friends became enemies and how greed is pervasive. It also highlights how slow RL is to become the best version of itself. ...Read full review »

An adult rugby league discussion that you won’t get on other Aus podcasts. Started listening for the SL War after recommended on the Sharks podcast and have been listening to the archive whilst the boys take a well deserved break. Get back soon though lads 🤣
The Davistator via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/06/20
Brilliant podcast. Look forward to it every week. Brilliant research and valuable retrospective. Even though they didn’t play as many tests as me or deserve my fame!!
Spanky Steeler via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/28/19
The work and effort the boys have put in to this podcast is amazing. I look forward to each new episode so much. Keep up the great work fellas🤙🏻

Love the pod . I started listening to the start of the SL War a week ago on the recommendation from a mate, and I love it . Clearly lots of research has been done . Great listening with a lots of laughs along the way

Love the whole series but being Canterbury support since the seventies this was a great account. Always looking forward to the next one.

The podcast is brilliant, so much hard work has gone into the research and the presentation is always entertaining. Your efforts are much appreciated guys!

Very informative and interesting podcast. The Super League series is essential listening for anyone with a interest in the history of Rugby League.
JPM135 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/20/19
This podcast is really well researched. As an old (and current) Bears fan it’s been good getting some behind the scenes insights leading to their demise in first grade. If they took the Super League money they’d still be in the comp
Message Corp via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/15/19
In this podcast, the boys have created something so important. This is a phenomenal piece of work. One that balances perfectly between carefully accurate; unbiasedly insightful; approachable and humorous. There is nothing else like it, and is a must for all sport fans.
The Biggest Tiger via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/04/19
The story of super league in all its of its glory painstakingly laid out in a staggering level of detail. It is in many ways not the story of rugby league but of the nature of humanity. We yearn to make life better for ourselves and yet manage to destroy that which we love.
