Do you remember the coverage?
Did t seem sympathetic?
In the next couple of years, may people thought rugby league was no longer played as much of the media suggested it was moribund.
Yes. For a start the BBC didn't just cover the Eng games and the final in 2000. And we had newspapers with RL sections and writers all of which is more sympathetic than nowadays where we see them removed. We definitely can't get full coverage of internationals when people will have to look under the bed to find out what is happening. The most comprehensive coverage we have had recently was over the Ben Flowers punch and the Sam Burgess transfer.
