The special edition issue is dedicated to the greatest game of all – and it's our greatest NRL issue of all time too!

Every single club is analysed in detail, with key players grilled from each club, stats pored over, strengths and weaknesses analysed and coaches and gameplans assessed, plus we get the fans' views too. It's the most comprehensive guide you're going to see this season!

Plus we take a look at 50 reasons to get excited for the season ahead with a half century of talking points that are going to have us cheering, jeering and gasping in disbelief.

We also look at the top four teams now dominating the league – and threatening to leave the rest in their wake. How did they get so good... and are there any chinks in their armour for the season ahead?

Meanwhile at the other end of the ladder there is Gold Coast Titans and their struggle not just to stay competitive, but to stay relevant...and maybe even battle to stay alive. We look inside the HQ to see how they're coping and the challenges they're facing.

Cowboys may have a shiny new stadium but league in Queensland has taken a dip since the retirement of Johnathan Thurston. Can the Maroons turn things around in time for Origin 2020 – and how can the Blues build on their return to form?

Who will be dominating the back pages and sports bulletins of the year ahead? We name them and meet the headline hoggers of 2020.

Plus we also talk to the next gen superstars that are just starting to break through. Remember their names - you'll be seeing a lot more of them.
