I would recommend the Hope on Whitfield St, W1

Watched the GF in there but havent been yet this SL season. Landlord is (assuming he is still there) called Phil and is from NZ. Just say a guy called Steve recommended the pub for watching rugby league. Will usually put the game on so long as the pub isnt rammed for football

Cheers. Until the Champs League final should be all clear, though the other rugby might be an issue (Leicester v Northampton)

They have two sky feeds and a tv upstairs so is only an issue when it is packed for a really big soccer or RU match is on downstairs using up both feeds (one is for the tv upstairs). Landlord pragmatically wont turn one off mid match

Let me know if you get it on. our posse due an RL night there soon...

We got in there around 4pm. Was all antipodeans in there. They got excited when I asked the girl to change channel but only as they thought I was asking for the rabo final. Nice pint but scored zero on the rl coverage even though nobody was watching the south african ru gane

Sorry to hear about that BBR. I think Saturday was always going to be tough with the RU and soccer finals on. Did u get the game on anywhere else?
