In Topic: For your info - More rugby on Premier Sports this weekend

They didnt lose the feed this happens when they go to the next game if you recorded it you would find the last ten at the front of the next game.


No, I was watching it live and they lost the feed - it went to a test card type screen, and they then went straight into ads. 


I know what you mean about recording games off Premier though. Last weekend was especially bad. I notice they've allowed a bit more time for this weekends matches.

Yes, average viewers per game is down 12% on last year, down 20% from the peak figures in 2012.


Those figures would be skewed by the Catalans games shown this year which largely attract lower audiences, don't take into account which channels games are shown on, and also don't even include the last weekend of SL games for which the BARB figures aren't officially released until next week.

This started last week. I saw some of the Roosters v Warriors game on Saturday morning - just a pity they appeared to lose the feed and the game went off with about 10 minutes of the match left. Luckily it wasn't a close game.

In Topic: Names on shirts

16 September 2014 - 04:03 PM

Don't mind names on shirts, but I'm not so keen on the squad numbers. 


Weren't squad numbers and names on shirts used in 1997 during the breakaway Aussie SL?  I suspect that there use by SL might be one of the reasons why the NRL stuck with tradition.
