The Dropped Kick-Off 16 – 2019 NRC Podcast (GF Preview & Season Wrap with Brett McKay)

The battle for the Toast Rack is upon us!

The Dropped Kick-Off is back for another week, and it’s time to cover the grand final match of 2019 National Rugby Championship!

In our final podcast covering the NRC, Nick W sits down with Brett McKay once again to talk semis, give our thoughts on the grand final clash between the Force and Vikings, and talk about what may lie ahead for the future of the competition.

The NRC Podcast Agenda:

1. Our favourite moment from the semi-finals?
2. Force vs Vikings: where will the grand final be won and lost for both teams?
3. Three favourite players of the season who were not selected in the Rising Star Awards?
4. Has the NRC come of age?

    Hi Nick and Brett,
    I enjoyed your NRC podcast. It was sad to hear you guys talking at the end about the possible demise of NRC next year, due I assume to a few self-centred elite Sydney clubs pushing some kind elite club national competition to the detriment of club rugby in the rest of Australia and even to the detriment of the have-not clubs in Sydney.
    If funding from Fox is a problem, then I am sure some sort of deal could be done with Twiggy, where maybe NRC is played under GRR rules.
    NRC could be properly promoted and funded by Twiggy’s team at Rapid Ruby. Streaming of TV sports coverage is the future, so direct Fox funding for exclusive rights is no longer required.
    And yes, those extra players who do not yet have Super or GRR contracts need to be properly paid, so they are close to full-time professionals, and could afford to take some unpaid leave from their jobs or trades for 2-3 months.
