We do not subscribe to the dominant view that Rugby League is the poorer cousin of Rugby Union. At Rivals Publishing we love this form of the game and our extensive coverage bears testimony to that.
In-depth coverage of the professional game, primarily in Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand, but not to the exclusion of other territories, forms the focal point of our Rugby League Services.
We have news, previews, reports on the The Super League, the Challenge Cup, the Championship, Championship Cup (UK); the National Rugby League, the New South Wales Cup, the Queensland Cup and the Jim Beam Cup (Australia); National Provincial Competition (New Zealand), Rugby League World Cup and the Rugby League Four Nations.
The Rugby League Services package contains the following data for all major competitions:
- Live scores
- Text commentaries
- Team line-ups
- Match info
- Weather and pitch reports
- Player stats & profiles
- Historical stats & results
Images can be provided with all our articles. However, the client must obtain a display image licence from the relevant image supplier.

All Rugby League events are covered by our team of operators at the games or captured live from TV. Key events (tries, penalties, half-time scores etc) are captured in real time and our XML feeds are instantly populated with the relevant data.
The service is normally provided as XML “PULL” or JSON data type, where by calling specific service URLs you can retrieve updates in real time.
