WG reporting that the Widnes game is now a 7 35 pm kick off. Surely bending the knee to sky again.

That’s no good. Those who turn up at 7.45pm will miss the only points we’ll score all game.

Can't see us scoring any points. Our attack is dire and Widnes were very good in defence so i hear against Cas.

Apparently the "pundits" aren't happy with the amount of post game TV time they are getting to show their expertise, even with the 15 minute move from 8pm to 7.45pm to accommodate the video ref. Expect it to become the norm, especially once we get to the business end of the season.
Mummy duck is now thoroughly depressed. SHE was the one that was famous for losing five in a row........until the 2011 GF!!!!!

Now I’m even more worried then... are they expecting to analyse a lot of tries against us? :-(

On a lighter note, many have complained that the coverage is dumbed down and could do with more intelligent analysis rather than the usual cliche-ridden flat cap comments. Can only be a positive if Wells and Carney are helping highlight why we are so pants.

It’s because a newspaper article in the I last year said RL doesn’t get column inches the morning after a game because the games finish too late.

Isn't that why they changed to 745 though? What's the reasoning for the extra 10 minutes?

Mmm. Aviva Premiership 2018 fixtures seem to have 19:45 kick offs.
