New blog feature: The news aggregator

The Rugby League Wiki blog now features a rugby league news aggregator, with the addition of a scroller near the top of the home page.

The scroller will link to a selection of recent news stories, videos and other items deemed interesting to a rugby league audience.

In contrast to the neutral stance of the encyclopaedia, the news aggregator won’t be shy about including an opinion or two at the same time from those contributing! We also hope to do a regular round up.
