Rugby League Week (frequently abbreviated to RLW) is the second highest selling Australian rugby league magazine, behind major competitor Big League. It is published weekly (on Wednesdays) during the Australian rugby league season, which runs from March to late September (roughly corresponding to the southern hemisphere autumn and winter) and has been published continuously since 1970. It is currently owned by Australian Consolidated Press. The magazine contains news coverage of Australian rugby league, focused primarily on the first-grade NRL competition (previously the NSWRL) but with time also devoted to lower-level competitions. There are usually also several profiles of rugby league players in each edition. A number of league personalities, including Mark Geyer, Stacey Jones and Matthew Johns, have regular columns, unconfirmed rumours and miscellaneous gossip are reported in a column written by ''The Mole''.
