This past weekend saw the first ever Rugby League World Club Series. This is an expansion on the World Club Challenge which took place in previous years. The new series pits the top 3 teams from the Super League and the NRL against each other in 3 games. So, how successful was this new idea? And can it have success in the future?
Earlier this week, Sam Burgess announced he would be leaving the South Sydney Rabbitohs and the world of Rugby League to sign for Aviva Premiership side, Bath RUFC.
