Not really. There aren't a lot of casual RL supporters watching on Thursdays.

There aren't a lot of people watching at all. It's a bit of a niche market - which is why it won't be on Sky next year.

Your barking up the wrong tree there - the viewing figures for Championship rugby are usually between 50 and 90 thousand they regularly top the figures for the week on the channel they are shown on. Also if you look at the most recent weeks figures available you will see that ESPN only had 1 programme with more viewers in the entire week, and that was the Premiership game on Saturday. It's long been rumoured that the RFL are looking at being paid for the Championship coverage and I would say with numbers like that it's not hard to see why
