This week, NRL Boom Rookies is back, maybe even more back than ever, as we delve into a much discussed and over promised episode.

FINALLY, the fellas dive into the dark history of Rugby in France, focusing on the 1940s and the Vichy Regime’s banning of Rugby League as a sport.

Join us as we cover all kinds of interesting topics such as;

  • Nazis are bad
  • The growth of Rugby League in France in the 1930s
  • what led to Rugby League being banned for “professionalism”
  • The additional underlying factors of the ban
  • What this all meant for both codes of Rugby in France
  • The great French Post-War Rugby League international touring side

And much more!
