After watching BBC 1 for an hour and a quarter they have finally just had a report and an interview with Brian Noble.

Yes, it's still there.

 

Main headline on BBC Sport android app, second headline on the website and then another story in the More Sport section.

 

I am beyond outrage.

Its on my PC, even emptied cache and cleaned out cookies and it remained.

 

 

HOwever BBC weather is another matter. Mentioned the weather for rugby union in Wales and for football but apparently there is nothing going on in Manchester today.

The BBC obviously feel there isn't too much interest in rugby league from the visitors to their website outside of the UK. A little bit ironic considering it's the World Cup final today.

ensure you use a green font when emailing the BBC  and start the message "why oh why oh why" for maximum effect!

I have just phoned the BBC complaints Dept. Managed to get the message across as calmly as possible, but raging inside. Got the man's name which is essential if you are going to get them focused.

 

He took on board the irony/coincidence of this happening on the eve of the World cup final and we had an interesting chat about it, but of course he is just a foot soldier.

 

I said they need to trace who's decision this was.

My brother lives in Manchester says he can still access the RL section on the main sports page,but it's just people outside the UK who can't they have to go the the other sports section.How can RL ever become a global sport when the BBC do everything to make sure the sport is confined next to Netball and Rowing in the OTHER SPORTS SECTION! ( Outraged RL fan from the States) Yes there are people outside the M62 corridor who love this GREAT SPORT. Sad.

Just typed bbc.co.uk into the url, clicked on Sport and there was RL where it has always been. I know that they also have an international site which may appear somewhat different but I think some are venting their spleen unnecessarily in this case.

Still there on Text- am I only one who laments the slow death of Ceefax/Teletext? Its 6th on Sport Under Headlines,Football,Cricket,F1, Union then Rugby league. Ought to complain about being behind F1, the ultimate elitist sport, where you need tens of millions just to qualify 20th!!.

No,my point is we are trying to get RL as much international coverage as possible,but yet on the eve of RLWC final the Beeb remove RL from anyone outside the UK on their Sports Website and drop it on the other sports pages next to Netball and rowing,sorry that's just not a coincidence no way.

Clearly an international thing. Regardless, no need to remove it. Terrible from the BBC
