2020 NRL Premiership Ring Pays Tribute To Health Workers And Emergency Services

The 2020 NRL and NRLW Premiership rings have been revealed - and they're a thing of beauty.

This weekend, the Penrith Panthers and Melbourne Storm will do battle in the NRL Grand Final while the Brisbane Broncos take on the Sydney Roosters in the climax of the NRLW season.

Becoming a Premiership winner is the goal of every rugby league player and one of its many perks includes getting a diamond-encrusted ring - similar to that of the NBA or NFL.

And the latest editions of the rings are special in every sense of the word.

This year they pay tribute to Australia's health workers and emergency services, both of whom have been instrumental in keeping this country going through the bushfires and global pandemic.

It's understood the NRL was approached by jewellers who wanted to pay homage to the country's first responders.

Working closely alongside Canberra artist Mick Ashley, the ring also includes an image depicting a fire fighter passing a ball to a nurse.

While the players, coaches and staff members at the clubs will probably never let these priceless 2 carat rings out of their sight, the jewellers themselves value them at around $10,000 each.
