Interesting.... they reckon they can offer more money than any other rugby league club on the UK.

A nice surprise for when he comes home!

 

Note for the Mods: I'm not saying he did or didn't do something. I make no comment on the QLD authority's claim. Just reporting the news.

Fantastic result. Another million on the BBC highlights too.

This concept can be a real money maker if nurtured carefully.

SL working with Sky to stream non-tv games

apologies if this is well known...but it's new to me.

I hope this happens .. If the price is right, I'd sign up and watch them from Oz.

Meanwhile, Super League are planning a joint venture with Sky to stream games not show on TV. In the UK, the trend is to sell streaming rights like broadcast rights rather than sporting bodies posting the content on their own sites.

NRL 3 v SL 0

22 February 2015 - 07:51 PM

Well the first two games were close anyway.

Unless the aus $ collapses relative to the pound the difference in salary cap between the two competitions will keep increasing in the short term.

With all the money flowing into the NRL and the likelihood of an even bigger tv deal on the way, will SL stand a chance at all against clubs stacked full of the best UK, Australian and Pacific talent?

What can be done to keep the talent spread evenly to ensure the WCS continues to be a successful money making event that grows year on year?
