Rugby League: That’s The Way It Was. Raper, A Rugby League Family.
Episode 8: In Australia, if you’re talking about the Chappell family you’re talking cricket; the Ella’s – Rugby Union. In AFL, Ablett is Royalty. And if you are talking about the Brabham’s – it’s Motorsport.
Rugby League also has a signature name, and that name is Raper!
For more than 60 years, the Raper family has contributed to the game of Rugby League, whether as a player, as a coach or as an Administrator of the game.
Author Barry Ross joins us to discuss this family’s amazing contribution to the game of Rugby League.
