Man of Kent

‘Record’ Sky TV figures for Super League

Recommended Posts

I thought fans were being turned off because the game was too political?

Good news though, really pleased to see.

The games were very well presented by Leeds and SL and must have looked good to any neutral viewer.

Saints played some terrific rugby and Leeds came back,although I would have liked Huddersfield to have held on for the sake of Ken Davy even though I'm from Leeds.

Hope it is as good this weekend.

You mean apart from the commentary by O'Connor and Arthur, the lack of hooter for 6 again and Sky not keeping track with the tackle count?

Alright Meldrew

When you've been watching that much NRL like I have recently, and you see the professional production of their programme, it just makes me sad that we cannot do the same. And even more so when Sky are in general such a forward thinking and progressive organisation...............it says a lot when BBC production of RL is better than Sky

That's a very fair point

I don't think it is, the NRL is akin to the Premier League over here, they simply aren't comparable to Super League in pretty much every aspect. The NRL can attract Australias top talent. Super League simply doesn't have that pulling power.

 

Still nice to see a positive news story turn into a whinge so early on.

Ot might be better if they keep Catalans away from it.

The Greatest Game of all is back

Congratulations to all of you, figures like that will make Broadcasters sit up.

Peak viewing figures are a good indication of how many people are prepared to give it a go.

Just need a team now in London.
