Anyone else noticed that the Conversions & Penalties are given for RU, but no kicks are shown for RL on BBC Teletext?

The RL pages are a bit of a shambles*, but I've definitely seen kickers' names listed sometimes. But since ITV killed off their service (which was better for RL at least), that's all there is as far as text services go on Freeview.

*Often a page will appear in 2 columns on a full page, with words missing between the columns.

I'm afraid the Beeb used to be like that. In the early days of Grandstand they'd give the racing results - but not the starting prices. I think a little of this corporate culture still hangs around Broadcasting House. I recall emailing them to complain in 2011 when Fev won the League Leaders Sheild - there was no film footage on Look North on the Monday - instead coverage of Yorkshire Cricket at North Marine Road Scarborough - why? Yorkshire weren't going to win anything that day and possibly Fev were- it was p i s s i n g it down in Scarborough too so the coverage was of players sat in the pavilion. All I got were platitudes in reply to my email.
