Has anyone’s else’s desktop site updated and it now no longer shows rugby league as one of the shortcut options at the top of the sport page? 

I’ve known this when I’ve been abroad before but this is now the case at home upon their new look

I don’t even get that. The yellow banner above the main article goes to the top of the page and there’s a link to a list of all sports at the bottom of the page. It’s the same for the website or the app. I’m not abroad either.

They still have that little man with a long stick turning off the gasights in the morning.   In Wigan he doubles up to tap on the window to wake up the pit brow lasses.

Have you purchased a VPN for security? Might be proxy-ing you on a overseas server.   RL is ignored on the overseas webpage titles bar.

I seem to remember raising this with the BBC before.  Their answer was that it depends on interest - these being clicks - which then means we fall off the page.  Can’t be arrissed to check or follow whether that’s true or not but it seems Cricket, Athletics and Cycling always remain.

Not sure we have to take this to heart or not.  I go to Reuters for my news and Sky/Newsnow for Sport.  I know many use Twitter.

I'm positively certain cricket gets more clicks on the BBC than RL so don't think there's any conspiracy there. The other two, only the BBC knows. Either way, I wouldn't be at all surprised if there's more to it than clicks alone. Companies give clubs tens of millions of dollars in sponsorship based one guy knowing another guy. Wouldn't put it past the BBC to relegate RL based on the whim of some decision-maker brought up on RU. 

If the BBC was a wholly commercial entity, I'd buy the click story. Considering it gets everyone's money one way or the other, they can pay lip service while undermining the sport time and again.

So why does RL show on one device but not another? Can they tailor the number of clicks to an individual?

Don’t know the answer to your question.  

What I do know, is they answered mine when I had a similar query, as i found RL missing from the top of the page links.  Must’ve been a year ago maybe, and like I said, I rarely go on that website now.

send the BBC an email, they might tell you.

I wasn’t suggesting conspiracy or trying to condone the click story, as we all know how the game is treat but yes, I agree with the lip service.

The BBC Rugby League site gets some stick on here, some of it warranted and some of it a little harsh.

Today they have the result of the New Zealand vs. Tonga test match but not the Fiji vs. Lebanon or Samoa vs. PNG games.

I don't know.

Personally, I would prefer that if they show the result of one intentional game then they should show them all.

Maybe we should just be happy with one rather than none.

Would they do the same for certain other sports?

It might be OK for some for the BBC website to show results of matches played in other countires (Internationals, the NRL), but what about those here in the UK ?

It is now after half-time in most matches this Sunday in England (4.10pm) and this is how the BBC RL website looks ...

BETFRED CHAMPIONSHIP

AUSTRALIAN HOLDEN STATE OF ORIGIN

Queensland RL6New South Wales38 FT

Why no updates on scores in League 1 ?

The same has now happened for the past few weeks.

Who knows where the blame for that lies though. Has anyone told the BBC, like the clubs or RFL?
