Spectators – Put yourself in their shoes

Spectators - put yourself in their shoes

Every week, hundreds of thousands of grassroots players, coaches, and volunteers head to local grounds across Australia to play and participate in the game that we all love – Rugby League.

The NRL, together with State Leagues and NRL Clubs, are committed to ensuring a safe environment for all players and have developed a series of videos aimed at reminding people that at the end of the day Rugby League is simply a game, to be enjoyed and respected by all.

The second story in the series highlights the poor behaviour of some parents and spectators towards players and officials. This clip asks our spectators to put themselves in the shoes of our players and reflect on their gameday behaviour. It’s always great to get a win, but to our Junior League players it’s more about having fun!

Remember, it’s just a game!


Coaches - Put yourself in their shoes

The first story focuses on coach behaviour towards the game’s match officials. This short and light hearted clip asks our coaches to put themselves in the shoes of our hardworking referees.
