    The editor Daniel used to live and shop here in Jindabyne and you couldn’t meet a nicer bloke. Well done Dan!!

    We had a customer come into our store at around 7:30 this morning to buy this magazine.
    He said it was due to this particular tweet.
    Thanks Daniel for that one.

    Thanks, Mark, for sharing this. Angelo, I hope you and your family are well. I miss my Jindabyne lifestyle. I very much value the support of newsagents. Aside from Totally Speedway, this month, I’ve launched two more publications: Totally Rugby League and Totally Motorsport. They’re both monthly magazines. So far, both magazines have been very well received. If anyone hasn’t received any copies from G&G, please let them or me know. Both of these launch issues went on sale on Thursday, March 6.

    Daniel, thanks for engaging here. Newsagents appreciate hearing direct from suppliers.

    Daniel no I have not received the totally rugby league from gotch actually I have never heard of it but I am going to chase it up today with gotch . You would think they could work it out with looking at sales of the big league magazine .

    Hi, Shaun.

    Let me know how you go. Since the launch of these new publications, I’ve actually had to send copies myself to newsagents – because G&G had ran out of extra copies. It’s all about supporting newsagents as much as I can. After all, newsagents are my bread and butter. 🙂

    Same here as shauns. We are in different states. I went onto G&G website and added your Rugby League mag and ordered some. Hopefully they arrive on Thursday.


  • 8 shauns // Mar 25, 2014 at 1:17 PM

    all good now on order .

    Awesome. If you have any dramas with G&G, then please feel free to contact me on 0432 126 210 or I’m more than happy to help. 🙂

    We get speedway and motorsport but I can’t find Totally Rugby League on the G&G site. Can someone advise the code please?


  • 11 Daniel Powell // Mar 26, 2014 at 1:44 AM

    Hi, Brendan.

    The title code for Totally Rugby League is 14138.

    I hope this helps.


    Daniel 🙂

    According to G&G, Totally Rugby League is out of stock.


  • 13 shauns // Mar 26, 2014 at 7:24 AM

    It actually was a tricky one to find , type the whole thing in and would show anything just type totally and it pops up but the tittle code makes life easier

    @Daniel Powell,

    The only magazines missing from my GG supply this morning were 2 x Totally Rugby League.

    I have reported the shortage to GG. Just thought you would like to be aware of the error.


  • 15 Daniel Powell // Apr 3, 2014 at 12:00 PM

    Thanks for letting me know. If you have no luck with G&G, please free to contact me on 0432 126 210 or

    On another note, it was nice to get a phone call from a newsagents in Gatton (Qld), asking for some information about Totally Motorsport and Totally Rugby League. Once they found out that I was an independent publisher, they were more excited. They said that they will be recommending these publications to their customers.

    The support of the newsagents around the country has been overwhelming. I’m getting a lot of positive feedback. It’s great that we can work together. It’s a win-win for everyone. 🙂

    Thanks for your response Daniel. If I have any dramas I’ll be sure to let you know.

    This is going to be yet another example of the poor decision by both NDC and GG to go to a 2 day per week deliveries to newsagents.

    If it were wednesday (on the old system) we would have these extra magazines by the end of the week – before the next round of Rugby League in this case – Now we won’t get these until monday after the new round of league has been almost completed…

    Not your fault at all, but thought it might add fuel to the fire about the problems that 2 delivery days per week.
