All of us overseas at the moment need to let the BBC know. Thye wouldn't do to union so why to Rugby League.

Has anyone else noticed that since the weekend Rugby League is now no longer one of the main sports listed under the "BBC Sport" banner on the BBC website and you now have to click on "More sport" to access it?

Cycling is listed there, as of course is rugby union, however it seems RL has been downgraded.

I've just gone to bbc.co.uk then clicked on sport and RL is the fifth banner on the top of the page. so no I haven't noticed it.

Very strange. It's definitely not there any more. I'm accessing it from overseas (Singapore) so maybe that has something to do with it.

This has been done to death on another thread somewhere (maybe RLFans) - it seems to be the overseas version only. Ironic after such a successful World Cup.

Depends. BBC Sport isn't some global behemoth. People going to BBC are probably looking for their general and world news. Imagine most sports page hits are British. I'm sure the Aussies got their World Cup news from their own media.

I think the clue may lie in the "British" in BBC

BBC news/world news is a major global institution. BBC Sport might not be however. So yes, and no.

For the good of Rugby League world wide complain to the BBC about this. They haven't and wouldn't do it to union.

Probably based on demand. Maybe there just aren't that many people clicking on RL from overseas. I just don't think there's a conspiracy here.

What even in Australia and New Zealand?

In Australia I'm sure there are numbers visiting the BBC website for League news which are comparable to those visiting for Union news.

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

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!

Sounds fair enough if they're just geo-targeting content(who cares about rugby league in South America, honestly?), but if I've followed the thread properly that doesn't explain why its getting shifted in Australia.

Complaint filed from Singapore. The BBC is, as its title suggests, foremost a British service and RL being one of the country's major spectator sports, it follows that it should have major coverage of it, no matter where in the world the website goes to.

Outside Australia, the NRL GF had Argentina, Chile and Brazil included in the top ten viewings. So a decent amount I would say
