  1. Rugby league logic means this will devastate rugby union and cause it to leak money. Surely having internationals on terrestrial tv also harms their international game. One example: https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2017/may/04/channel-5-premiership-rugby-live-terrestrial-tv
  2. Do you think UK rugby union's increased exposure on free to air and pay TV will make it become less popular? Increased exposure will only help sports grow.
  3. It helped increase attendances in Australia. We have every nrl game of every round broadcast. In fact, we have more non-nrl games broadcast than you get SL broadcast. It becomes a sport you can more easily follow when all games are on TV. Sponsors love it too. If the ground looks like it offers a good match day experience people will turn up.
  4. It was shown on a giant screen, and multiple televisions, at my local social club.
  5. Will it have away fans for Toronto? If not many up north won't buy the game.
  6. Jamaica well behind on scoreboard, 40m from line, facing a strong breeze and choose to kick for 2 points..
  7. 10 to 15 years ago there'd be rumours about matches played around the world and one could never be confident the match actually occurred. These days streaming brings it all to life.
  8. Lots of penalties against Jamaica
  9. On pay tv we get the same limited SL match coverage as the UK and no uk specific magazine shows.
  10. We get multiple non-nrl domestic leagues broadcast on tv in Australia because rugby league is popular. It's a very popular television sport shown on free to air and also on a 24 hour dedicated rugby league channel on pay tv. If super league actually broadcast more than a few games per week they could potentially build a season narrative for Australian fans to follow. It's hard to follow from Australia. Or I could be talking out of my ######.
  11. It will be great fun. I've seen many a forum user and the occasional paid commentator say the NRL should play a game in the UK or elsewhere but it looks like super league is showing faith in their product and will stand on NRL toes first. A big issue with super league though is they barely get any games broadcast so it's hard to follow.
  12. I suspect they'd get around 4000 plus English fans at the very least. Many would travel and many would already be here as backpackers etc. I would definitely go. I've been to a few super league games in the UK and the fans are great, really engaged in the match.
  13. Rugby league's version
