Bit far from London on a Sunday afternoon for me 😛

Will watch it on Premier, I was just hoping it'd be a bit more exposure for the game. Also would have been interesting to see Scotland v SA Union and Samoa v Fiji League go head to head on BBC.

Thank Perry,

My reply to Barbara Slater:

Dear Barbara,

I am sending you this to state my complaint, as regards to the lack of coverage of the Rugby League World Cup on the BBC.
5live and Xtra are presenting a wonderful array of programmes, covering the game throughout the UK & Ireland. But you would be hard pressed to find any credible coverage on the mainstream TV channels.
The games have been played out to full stadiums, great family atmospheres and with the best entertaining rugby seen anywhere. But the BBC have missed a trick here, by not showing any other games live other than England & the occasional Wales game.
A perfect case in point is on Sunday, when Samoa & Fiji play a quarter final; which is anticipated to be one of the most competitive games of rugby this year. Why cannot the BBC entertain a deal with Premier sports to broadcast such a game?
It does disappoint me when we see such a lack of decent live sport on the BBC, when you where known the world over for it, the excellent Olympics a case in point.
Is there a bias at play here, because the game is portrayed (wrongly) as a Northern game, and often derided by commentators such as John Inverdale.
Anyway, I thank you for your time and if you are going to the Semi Finals at Wembley? Drop me a line and I would quite freely offer to explain the intricacies of 'The Greatest Game' to you.

Best regards
