From AFL to NRL: how closely have you been following the footy this year?

Before the rugby league grand final, we’re testing how much knowledge you retained in 2021

It’s footy grand final season. The AFL one happened last weekend. The NRL title goes up for grabs on Sunday. So many leagues, so little time. So many matches across so many months. If you had been trying to follow it all, that would have been a mighty task.

But then again, if ever there were a season in which you were able to keep one eye on the screen at all times, it would have been during the rolling lockdowns and enforced solitude of 2021 in much of Australia. So let’s find out how much you retained given the general background radiation of anxiety, when perhaps a game took your mind off things for a while.
