National Rugby League Teams
This is a complete LIST OF CLUBS that have competed in the FIRST-GRADE RUGBY LEAGUE FOOTBALL COMPETITION in Australia that began with the New South Wales Rugby Football League (NSWRFL) competition in 1908.

The NRL was established as a company owned in partnership between the ARL and News Limited. In 2013 the ARL was reconstituted as the Australian Rugby League Commission (ARLC) and News Limited handed their 50% stake in the NRL back to the governing body

Golden Point
The GOLDEN POINT, a sudden death overtime system, is used to resolve drawn rugby league football matches. The term is borrowed from soccer 's now defunct golden goal . CONTENTS * 1 Australasia * 2 Internationals * 3 Europe * 4 See also * 5 External links * 6 References AUSTRALASIAThe golden point is used to determine a winner (where applicable, see below) when scores are level at the end of regular time. Before its introduction in Australasia's National Rugby League competition, normal season games were left as draws; in finals matches, 20 minutes extra time ensued (10 minutes each way), with a replay in the event of a draw. If the scores are level at the end of 80 minutes, 5 minutes are played, the teams swap ends with no break, and a further 5 minutes are played. Any score (try , penalty goal , or field goal ) in this 10 minute period secures a win for the scoring team, and the game ends at that point

Rugby League Positions
A rugby league football team consists of thirteen players on the field, with four substitutes on the bench. Each of the thirteen players is assigned a position based on both the role they are expected to fill within the team and the area they typically occupy on the field. These positions are defined by number and are standardised across all teams and matches, however the same rules apply equally to all players regardless of position and the positions are fluid, meaning players free to interchange between positions or take up a different position at any time. In practice, the positions simply serve as a guideline as to the player's expected role in both attack and defence. Players are divided into two general categories, forwards and backs. Forwards are generally chosen for their size and strength. They are expected to run with the ball, to attack, and to make tackles. Forwards are required to improve the team's field position thus creating space and time for the backs

Fullback (rugby League)
FULLBACK (or FULL-BACK) is one of the positions in a rugby league football team. Typically wearing jersey number 1, the fullback is a member of the team's 'back-line' (1-7). The position's name comes from their duty of standing the furthest back in defence, behind the forwards (8-13), half backs (6 and 7) and the three-quarter backs (2-5). Fullbacks are therefore the last line of defence, having to tackle any opposition players and regather the ball from any kicks that make it through their teammates. It is for this reason that the fullback is also referred to as the SWEEPER or CUSTODIAN. Being able to secure high bomb kicks is a sought after quality in fullbacks. Fullback is also one of the most important positions in attack, handling the ball nearly every set of six and often running into open space on the field . Therefore, together with the two half backs and hooker , fullback is one of the four key positions that make up what is referred to as a team's 'spine'
