Hey everyone.

I have just moved to Melbourne and am feeling a bit starved a league coverage. We haven't sprung for Foxtel yet, and not many games are broadcast on the radio here, leaving me to listen over the net to Hadley for this weekend's game.

I have heard that internet radio can use up your download limit pretty fast. Does anyone know what the download would be to tune in for the game (say 2 hours connection)?

Cheers.

I have been in Melbourne for a while Gronk, where are you located?

The station hotel in Prahran shows every NRL game on fox. Thats where PJ and I head when he is in town.

Clon lives in Melb and I'm head down frequently (and am moving there by years end) -we usually catch most Manly games at a pub called the Station Hotel in Prahan.
They show every league game and also show the union.

I'm in South Yarra mate, a stones throw away.

Sat night might not be good, only for the fact that the Bledisloe will be on all but 1 tele!!!!!

If you like rugby though the Station is the place to watch it. Great atmosphere.

I realise you now have this canine-like desire to procreate, but let's not forget it as it could be a very good idea for this site. ;)

Oh Brother!!!! Too much information.

I love the idea of either a public radio or internet Sea Eagles radio. Could be winner and the club should look into it. The Souths one, despite their troubles, wasn't too bad except for the maniacs who commentated. St George do one on an Illawarra station as well.

Dan is turning into a horticulturist! He is sowing seeds and offering free cabs with every root. If you keep sprouting then don't be surprised if your twig gets pruned.
