And, yet, when the deal was announced in late 2020 (to start this year), this was one of the good bits:

"The BBC’s ground breaking online and digital coverage of the early rounds of the competition featuring teams and clubs from all sections of the Community Game will continue and will sit alongside the RFL’s additional digital and highlights rights allowing the opportunity to promote the sport to a wider audience."

"And watch out for details of coverage of a third tie to be confirmed this week."

On which platform Gav, BBC or our league, or something else. Love watching the early round ties, especially the amateur teams who always seem to put a great performance on for the viewers

While they have made many improvements elsewhere in their RL coverage, streaming the early rounds of the Cup is my favourite addition to the BBC's regular offerings.

It really has become an annual highlight for me, for all the other professional and amateur games I watch from around the world.

BBC to cover  Orrell St James v Army on saturday  ( nb k.o. time of 12,30 ) 

Our League to show  Bentley v Stanningley on sunday.

Wigan St Pats on their facebook page are saying that their 2.15 pm match on saturday at Rochdale Mayfield is being streamed . Not yet sure which platform.

Tasty coverage all round guaranteed.

But you can't beat watching any of them live if weather and your covid status allows - remember  ' Your Game needs You '

I'll be watching a live game, but being able to watch another or others on tv, probably on catch up is an added bonus.

No announcement yet but I would guess 'The Sportsman' Youtube channel 👌

I think my recent favourite was the tremendous fight that Siddal gave Toronto Wolfpack in a bit of a mud bath.

One from Memory Lane 1st Round  13 feb 1977 ----

Pilkington Recs 4 Wigan 10 ( 2-3 at half time.) at Knowsley Road.

A year later Pilks led Castleford 20 -13  at half time before going down by a single point.......

They sound like great games.

Padge will correct me but I believe Wigan had Fairburn , Nulty, Vigo and Francis in the backs alongside forwards Hogan Sorenson and  Irving  , all players whose reputations  have stood the test of time.

Joey Mcabe and Billy Simmons , the Barla International half back partnership of the day, showed little respect and almost played Wigan off the park.....

Alan 'Dingy ' Doran, a St Cuthbert's lad and late replacement for prop Ashcroft saved it late on for the Cherry and Whites  with a telling break......

You've probably seen for yourself but noticed it is at Chiswick RU on the 15th with a 1pm kick off.

I'm actually going to attend this game on my Sweeney Todd so do send me a DM if you are there and want to say hello.

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'm going to walk over to the Chiswick ground for the Chargers and Ellenborough tie tomorrow.
