Hear It From Me

No secrets here, my name is Victoria. I am a 24 year old located in Sydney, Australia with more than a passion for Rugby League. The Parramatta Eels are my family, but I promise to always remain unbiased whilst posting for Top Eight, Bottom Eight. If you so desire, I am contactable by phone or via social media with links available at the top menu. Thank you so much to all of my readers and those who have helped grow this blog to become the network that it is. I am forever grateful.
