Shock as NRL announces five Immortals

 

DALLY Messenger, Dave Brown, Frank Burge, Mal Meninga and Norm Provan were added to the NRL's most exclusive club - the Immortals - in a shock move on Wednesday night.

The ceremony was originally tipped to announce two players from opposite sides of rubgy league history from a list of 10 nominees.

The first three players were leaked midway through the live television broadcast, leading fans to believe post-war players were given the cold shoulder.

Did the NRL make the right move naming five Immortals?

The decision to add three players to the renowned list was met with praise from fans as the news broke on social media.
