Looks like Derek has put his foot down with regards to Premier Sports showing the Wolfpack game at Leigh.

Looks like this Toronto ship is not sailing in calm waters after all

Welcome to the Championship!!!!

I can't see this game being affected by TV whoever screens it, the crowd will still be the same,season ticket holders, Leythers, maybe a few neutrals, maybe a handful of Wolfpack fans,it will hopefully be a very good game and a chance for Leigh to put the Wolfpack in their place.
I personally bear Paul or any of the ex Leigh players no grudges,for me we now have better players,yes let's make the LSV a very hostile and intimidating place for them,but leave it at that,let rugby do our talking.

As far as the TV televising is concerned,I welcome it, it gives Canada a chance to see what level they have to achieve if they want promotion.

Do Sky not own the rights to SL and Champ rugby??
Don't mind expansion, but these guys just seem to make there own rules up as they go along - not the TV part particularly but the home/away scenario and the magic weekend farce gets my goat

If my memory serves me well Premier sport ditched a game in the RL World cup they should have broadcast live in favour of some other sport

Where is the negative in the game being on TV ?
I'm with Charlie on this, I don't see it affecting the numbers but it will let others experience the game and our fantastic stadium. If one game will help build the game overseas it's this one.
And on a personal note it's one of the few games I will get to see as it happens (I hope) and not have to wonder now long I will have to wait before it will be uploaded to LCTV.
I watch every game on DVD (thanks Fred) but it will never beat being behind the sticks.

VL I feel lucky to be able to watch my team at the LSV, but I'm sure exiled Leythers like your good self value every opportunity to watch Leigh and rightly so,for me we should spread the RL word at every chance we have,I know a few exiled Leythers who will be looking forward to such a game,I'm sure a comprimise can be reached. :thumb:

Rowley,as we well know,coaches his team to play dirty as when he was here. We had the worst reputation for discipline under him. This televised game could well be remembered for all the wrong reasons. He will without doubt try to bully Jamie Acton into retaliation, with his ream of ex Leigh superstars if our players don't get dragged in, I think that our team could save the day
