They've shown willingness to go to France before, though. Remember Toulouse's Cup run a few years ago? The BBC chose their match at home to (I think) Widnes over any of the ties involving SL sides.

Also I think I pointed it out in this thread earlier, Catalan v wire was broadcast live by the BBC last year. It would be brilliant if they pick the Catalan game and the Wire game, as then Sky would be expected to pick up the other two and we would get all four games.

That would indeed be most excellent.

 

Still, if the BBC don't show it there's always the option of watching Catalan v Hull in the pub.

I agree, the BBC probably will show the Catalan game. My comment was in reply to a poster who thought the report in League Express stated that the BBC had already agreed to show Catalan at home - which as far as I'm aware they hadn't. Hopefully they will though.

Good draw for Huddersfield..... I believe in probability, hope I'm wrong.... July a few weeks away.... Wires must improve.


Nah

Wire just need to hope Huddersfield don't change their usual game plan v Wire which is usually "enjoy watching the excellent attack from Warrington for half an hour then try to join in"

I think there's a fair chance that the Catalans-Hull game wont be on tv. BBC have, I think, the first two picks - they wont send a full production crew all the way to France when they can send one to Wigan instead. They'll deffo go for Wire-Giants and then I'd be very surprised if it's not Wigan. Sky have said they'd only show two games if they're both in the UK.

In the event of London v Catalans semi,they've got to play it in France. Doubt they would but.....

They might not have to, can they use the BeIn Sports footage?

That's a real result! I think both BBC games are on BBC 2 which is disappointing, but all 4 quarters on is excellent.

glad I was wrong about the BBC going to France, 4 games all televised - some serious couch time heading my way! That's in the eventuality the sores have healed up from this weekend's couch potatofest
