Me-nothing better than watching Leigh live-better still if I decide to go to Toronto.

Come to Toronto Scrum. Then we can go for a pint or 2 :D
I watch every game on DVD (thanks Fred) but it will never beat being behind the sticks.
"Come On You Leigh !"

They don't receive central funding,so are entitled to create their own broadcasting rights.

Leigh have already been paid for the game to be televised via Sly. Sly have to state how many games they are willing to broadcast in the Championship,even though they own the rights to them all.

We know they will show Summer Bash along with the 8's,so that leaves all other league fixtures vacant. Under EU law,if they are approached by another broadcaster who are willing to fill the vacant fixture,they have to accommodate them.

That certainly is news to me - and with the sound of it a lot more on here

Thanx for that

It also opens a whole new can of worms too

Example:

if they get into S.L. they then can show a live game "away" if SKY were not showing it - Same example yea?

Toronto at home in SL would fall into the same category as Catalans. beIN SPORTS broadcast Catalans home games not Sly.Toronto would be the same with Premier,although I think Premier only have a two year contract with Toronto,this being the final year.

If they reach SL before 2021 then they'll receive central funding,so their away games as with Catalans will be covered by Sly.

Its been the demise of the game hasn’t it! The word “exposure” works in conjunction with the word “expansion”…

Championship clubs have their arm twisted up their back. Take your pocket money and follow the rules. The rules being we pay you pocket money to not give you “exposure” which effectively will not give you any “expansion”…

You can always try and market your games better with the “exposure” we give you and should have major sponsors along with investors queuing at your door.

If all fails we can always expand to North America and you’ll reap the benefits from there in four years time, but until then we will continue to reap benefits for you and give you your pocket money.
