Pretty worrying trend.


I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Although presumably this is the same cup contract as last year, which would imply Sky has the rights for these rounds but is choosing not to show them.

 

I'm not sure if BBC could show a 2nd game in this round even if they wanted to.

Correct on both counts.

Yep - it's clear they only have options rather than a requirement. We saw this last year when we thought all the qf's would be broadcast which didn't happen.

 

Disappointing TV deal actually and poor it's gone backwards.

Yeah. I would love to know how much Sky have paid - if anything? Shabby treatment of the competition.

Absolutely!
No reason for any Giants, Leeds or even neutral with the day free not to be there.

Lets make it a cup tie to remember between would be contenders and the champions!
