Rugby League is no longer on the main page of the BBC sports page. Go the the BBC complaints department and via email complain, which i have already done. We need to make aware to the BBC that dropping Rugby League into the other sports section in unaccepable.

Are you sure it's not just your computer??

 

I see 'Rugby L' as sixth in the main bar, a link to "Kiwis plan to shock Australia again" article, and in the 'More Sports' section ALL sports are in there including Football and Cricket.

 

So nothing has changed.

Just logged onto my iPad in the States and instantly noticed on the BBC website main sports page that Rugby League as been removed and placed in the other sports section next to Netball and Rowing.This on the eve of the RLWC final.Sad.Emailed the Beeb the response was pathetic.

Buggers - so they basically don't want it to spread any further abroad.

Maybe they're trying to hide away the Union v League article as it's been a winner for League.

Still there for me, rlwc final is the lead story as well, same on bbc breakfast. Coverage during the week was ###### though
PROUD TO BE A MEMBER OF http://www.rugbyleaguecares.org/ and http://www.walesrugb...-wales-for-2013
Predictions for the future -
Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG
Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG
Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

http://www.pitchero.com/clubs/cardiffdemonsrlfc/
http://www.walesrugbyleague.co.uk/

I promise to pay �10 to the charity of Bomb Jacks choice if Widnes Millionaires finish above the battling underdogs Crusaders RL. I OWE A TENNER!

Still the same in Sth America. Peru now. Everyone should complain about this anyway.

I thought the exact same thing about the League v Union article too.

Time to ditch the BBC or at least give them some strict minimum standards/expectations for TV, radio and online for broadcast rights.
