93 Made Games met with Australian rugby league legend Laurie Daley on 26 October 2008 to discuss his career, the game of Rugby League and marketing to rugby league fans.
Laurie is very proud of his career and what the game of rugby league has done for his life. He hopes that his State of Origin side, the NSW Blues, can regain the dominance it held over the Queensland Maroons in the 1990s.
On expanding the NRL competition into regions like Papua New Guinea, he thought that it was not currently feasible for the NRL to include a team from PNG as suitable infrastructure does not currently exist. However, he remained open to the idea of such a venture in the future.
Laurie reminisced a little with 93 Made Games regarding rugby league's heyday in the '80s and '90s. He agreed that the game has lost a bit over the past 10 years and knows that it will always be a favourite pastime for many Australians.
Laurie was also kind enough provide a couple of autographs including signing a prototype of the Show'n'Go Rugby League card game dial.
93 Made Games wishes Laurie all the best for the future and looks forward to meeting with him again.
Laurie Daley played 244 games for the Canberra Raiders during which he won 3 premierships. He also represented NSW 26 times and played 34 test matches for Australia. He is now most recognised for his work on Channel 9's Footy Show, as a Rugby League commentator on Fox Sports and as the assistant coach of the NSW Blues.
