Farrelly Photos snaps up Women's Premiership

Farrelly Photos snaps up Women's Premiership
For Immediate Release

The Auckland Rugby League are pleased to confirm Auckland photography agency Farrelly Photos as the principal sponsor of the 2018 ARL Women's Premiership.

Farrelly Photos have a rich history with rugby league in Auckland, with owner/operator Mike Farrelly having been involved as a volunteer for 25 years, in addition to the company being the ARL’s official team photo supplier since 1976.

"After many years involved with the Auckland Rugby League it's a thrill to be able to come on board and support the Auckland Women's Premiership," Farrelly said.

"It's an exciting time to be involved, with the Women's Rugby League World Cup about to kick-off and last year's Auckland competition being one of the most competitive in recent memory."

The ARL Women's Premiership has gone from strength-to-strength over the last few years, with 12 teams competing this season, involving over 360 players, while the development of the U17 and U15 competitions saw around 250 players take the field.

Following its success last year, the ARL will once again stage the Women in League extravaganza in 2018, where a number of matches will be streamed live on

ARL general manager Greg Whaiapu said the partnership with Farrelly Photos would support continued efforts to promote the Women's Premiership.

"The game is entering a new era for women and the Auckland competition is at the forefront of that, with 21 of the 24 Kiwi Ferns playing at the Women's World Cup having come from our premiership," Whaiapu said.

"Both Mike personally, and Farrelly Photos as a company, have been fantastic supporters of the Auckland game for a long time and it's wonderful to be able to take that relationship to the next level from 2018."

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
