There was mutterings on here of a Sky 'Rugby' channel. Sky have SL, NRL and buts if union. Why not stick second tier league/Union best weekend fixtures on top? 

Please, stop dragging union into everything. (I see you spell it with a capital, but excuse me if I don't).

There's a cross code forum for these joint initiatives you seem so fond of.

On a more serious note, TV exposure makes club sponsorship more valuable so even if the £ notes don't seem great the value shouldn't be under-estimated.  

Exactly, Our League have actually done the hard work to get it to this point. They now need a V2 that is a complete viewer experience platform. If they can negotiate odd SL games going on there with p

Highlights package would be the best way to go, do something like RL Raw, but sanitized so it can be shown at an hour available to a large audience. The problem with live games is your fixture choice is more restricted if you avoid potential blow out games and avoid those stadia that might not be so well geared up for live broadcasts, meaning that some teams might just not get seen. Highlights overcomes these, even blow outs don’t matter if the package is well put together.

Of course finding someone to pay for such a package (as indeed would be the case for live games), is the real challenge, especially if you are trying to reach the largest possible audience.

MEN's RL coverage is run by Matt Shaw, formerly of this parish. It's legit.

Are your Swinton friends keeping you out of the loop?

 MEN part of Reach - https://local.reachsolutions.co.uk/brands/manchester-evening-news/

Much improved.

The last 2 rugby league stories 8n the Daily Mail,including the coverage of a Challenge Cup Final by one of their better journalists,who normally covers soccer,was extremely good - and believable.

 

 

 

     No reserves,but resilience,persistence and determination are omnipotent.

I have seen better coverage of Rugby League in the Norwich Evening News. The MEN's sports coverage is totally biased towards Man U/C and LCCC, it hates any other sport pushing itself onto their precious page space.

No, it is a bit difficult to get a delivery of the MEN down here in Sussex. On line can be manipulated to provide as much coverage as they want, but printed versions can't.

Thanks for clearing up that your original claim was unsubstantiated nonsense.

I thought the MEN had become a freesheet?
