Best Sports Bars and Pubs showing Live Rugby League

Rugby League may not quite boast the money and coverage of its union brother in the UK but that should not put you off watching it whenever you can on TV in a pub. The world's most physically demanding team sport is famous for its thrilling pace, huge hits and free scoring nature. Whether your cup of tea is the Super League, something a bit more Antipodean like the NRL or a big international knees ups, there are few things more exciting than settling down in a pub with a pint to watch the most exhilarating oval ball action around. See below for some of our favourite pubs to watch Rugby League in.
