Just been watching the Sky Sports "Battle for the Super League (1996)" dvd and the intro music had me going, my dad was sat laughing in the chair as it came up with the system activate icon.

The original super league sky sports intro

Give me the above over the Frankie Goes To Hollywood one that's used now, although I used to like the big league intro for skysports games (1994) --> .

On YouTube there is also the one from 2004(+) [it says] where there are dudes running round a steel mill.

There was also the intro inbetween yours and the one I mention where 3 or 4 players, including Leon Pryce and Terry Newton I think, were stood being 'scanned'... however I haven't seen this on YouTube

I really like the current one.

I always like this try music which I think they may still use.

Edit: The one before the current one had this music Lostprophets - Start Something.

The classic Sky Sports Super League anthem, Carpe Diem by edrenalin, is now available as an MP3 download on Amazon.co.uk.

My favourite was the 'Search for the hero', which showed some classic big hits, all timed to the stressed beat of the music. Super stuff. The newer attempts don't come near it imo.

Funnily enough, Ive been searching for the intro music for the Sky Sports RL live games circa 2003/2004. It was a rock/metal track and Ive never been able to find out what it was called. Anybody know?

I always found the player shots just after the introduction of the big screen were upon scoring a try you saw them sat on what must have been an exercise bike head bobbing up and down like a Churchill dog!

I my have answered it for you already above, 'Lostprophets - Start Something'? Although it is the full song and Sky only used some parts without lyrics.

Another Old Sky Intro -

They should bring that music back to their try replays. The modern version is rubbish!

Amen to that mate and a good find, I can just about remember the 93/94 intro, oh the days of fighting off my mum to keep control of the remote just so I could watch the live Rugby League games on Sky.
