Did anyone else read the thread title and think that Sky had decided to literally 'take over' the running of Rugby League in this country?

I’m glad this one made the list Friday, March 26 Australia vs Tonga (2019): One of the greatest international upsets of all time as Tonga defeated world champions Australia in Auckland.

https://www.skysports.com/rugby-league/news/12196/12236961/sky-sports-rugby-league-takeover-what-classic-matches-are-on List of classic matches being shown. Some of which actually are classic. 

Plenty of matches I'd like to watch again in that list.

I never got to watch PSG v Sheffield, so that's a fine way to kick off the takeover.

I'd re-watch that just for the singing, let alone the Rugby.

One of my favourite games ever, rugby league at its finest! 

It was a privilege and a joy to watch.

It's a very fine list. 

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

I thought it was another ‘I’ve got a cunning plan’ thread.

Was trying to think of some of the lesser “famous” big games I’d like to see and come up with a few Championship/Northern Rail games; 

Halifax v Widnes (I think) - The one where Halifax wore a Melbourne Storm inspired shirt. 

Leigh v Halifax/Widnes (I think) - Northern Rail Cup Final at Blackpool, Leigh shaped for a drop goal to tie the game (IIRC) and then in true Ian Millward style, chucked it wide and won it.

Batley v Leigh - Remember watching this abroad, possibly in Fuengirola very hungover but it was a good game.

While these were good watches at the time and I’m sure they will be again, it’s a shame that there’s not a few new ones to be added. 

I wish they did a show a bit like NFL Americas Game where they look at the champions that year, use 4 players/coaches of that team to talk you through the year etc and show highlights of the big games with insight.. they are a fantastic 40 minute watch.. (always record them so can skip the ads).

I can easily waste many a hour watching them when I come across them channel hopping. Even if you don't know the players involved or the teams they are still a great watch. You don't even have to be much of an American Football fan to enjoy them, any sports fan can enjoy them as they are that well produced.
