Excellent BBC coverage on today's championship eliminator's.   🤣     https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-league

There was coverage though. As the games were on, as well as live scores you could listen to commentary live on the site.  It was the banner item on the Rugby League page.

I accept that the lack of match reports is poor though.

Well, it's one of either the third biggest city in France with a massive RU club who are very supportive of a RL team (which is completely unprecendented in French RL history and might start to heal those gaping wounds) are getting into SL or the third and smallest club in the metroploitan district of Wakefield are.

So to be fair to the BBC, these elements pretty much cancel each other out in terms of developing the game so zero coverage is about right. 

I'm not going to mention the respective crowds, because the games were not on the BBC and it was a sunny day in Toulouse.

So, you're not a fan of Featherstone Rovers. That still does not excuse the pitiful lack of reporting from the BBC. If it was the women's equivalent, there would have probably have been a match report.

There was no match report of the women's shield semi finals last week. They very rarely report on second tier anything other than football.
