Around 15,000 fans have braved terrible weather at Sydney Olympic Park on Saturday to see players from all 16 NRL teams gathered for the first ever time.

The fan day was part of centenary celebrations for Australian rugby league, and included a historic mass photograph of every current NRL player.

NRL chief executive David Gallop said the day was a huge success, and thanked fans for turning out in such large numbers.

"It's never been done before, it's a once-in-a-lifetime moment for the game, to celebrate a centenary," he said.

"Of course the game's history is going to be cherished, but it's also about the 2008 year and the next 100 years."

That is a great idea to make rugby league a bigger sport, and I reckon Super League should try that out. They are trying to get rugby league bigger by getting more teams in (talks about upping teams to 14), but this would be a fantastic day out for rugby league fans and people who want to try rugby league.

I went to the fan day ,it was a great day because fans mingled so well.The players seemed to enjoy the day as well.I was surprised by the size of some of the players,Preston Campbell is tiny close up but I needed a ladder to to speak to Israel Falou and Greg Inglis.The other funny thing was lack of ego from most of the players.
