TEAMS: NSWRL President's Cup - 2020 Round 1
34 mins ago | New South Wales Rugby League
The eighth episode of 'Rugby League: That's the Way It Was' focuses on rugby league royalty - the Raper family.
In Australia, if you're talking about the Chappell family you're talking cricket; the Ella's - Rugby Union. In AFL, Ablett is Royalty. And if you are talking about the Brabham's - it's Motorsport.
Rugby League also has a signature name, and that name is Raper!
For more than 60 years, the Raper family has contributed to the game of Rugby League, whether as a player, as a coach or as an Administrator of the game.
Author Barry Ross joins us to discuss this family's amazing contribution to the game of Rugby League.
