The Dugout is the number one free to play rugby league coaching simulation on the web today. Players take on the role of head coach of a Super League or NRL club and must steer their club through a long and difficult season with the ultimate aim of becoming Grand Final winners and subsequently World Club Champions.

The game can be as involving as you want it to be and some of your tasks as a coach include the following:

- Negotiate players contracts - Devise training schedules to improve players performances and abilities - Select the right team and tactics to bring success to the club - Haggle in the transfer market as you look to bring in the missing peice of the jigsaw - Keep a track on your clubs finances - Make sure the morale of your players remains good - Post regular media updates and liase with the game press to ensure your club perform to the maximum of their abilities

The game is due to kick off on the 12th August but pre-season is well underway. Please drop by our site at and read through the FAQ. If you like what you see why not sign up and post your coaching application?
