The above is the Video about AU rugby player Carney being sacked, you can start from 3:00, when the reporter mentioned "NRL", she sounds like NR"will" to me!!
my question is:
- how exactly did the female reporter pronounce the word "L"?
- is that Australian accent? or "L" actually should be pronounced like that??

That lady has, for me, a very pronounced Australian accent. You're right that it doesn't sound like "ell" which is how we say it in British English, but she simply uses the pronunciation of her particular Australian accent.
Note to other users - if you paste that link into your browser and wait for it to play, you will get an advert which, at first glance, could be construed to be porn. It is a legitimate advert for a particular medical condition to do with intimacy. However, I suggest everyone skips straight to 3:00 for the relevant part of the news story.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
I suggest they watch the first presenter who says 'NRL' in a more usual Australian accent, at about 0:15-0:16.
The women has an accent that we call 'broad', and will probably keep her as a field reporter rather than a major desk reporter.
At about 2:10 you'll get a typical football player's rendition of 'NRL'.
emsr2d2, you must have got a different ad from what I did.
how do they pronounce "L"
However the L they want to, apparently.
thanks for letting me know!!

Yeah... I know the advert before the official video, hope it doesn't disturb anyone
Most of the time it should be a Coles(supermarket) advert, which seems to be more legitimate haha
