Fact-the Championship/Super league clubs handed their TV rights to the Rugby Football League to negotiate a deal collectively.

Fact-the Rugby Football League sold the rights to Sky Sports and Sporting Club Leigh Ltd like all other Championship/Super League clubs receive an amount of money out of that income.

Fact-Sporting Club Leigh Ltd like all other Championship/Super League clubs have given their individual TV rights to the Rugby Football League therefor DB cannot negotiate a private deal with Premier Sports neither can Premier approach DB to do a deal. Premier have done the deal through the Rugby Football League and Sky Sports and DB knows this.

Fact-Everybody in North America with and interest in Rugby League now knows who owns Leigh Centurians.


Scrum, are you really Rafa Benitez?

Not sure, Atomic, his question mark reads like a job application. Scrum, you can be whoever you want to be in life if you work hard. It took years for Rafa to be able to rant like Kev and get the Noocassel job. Either way, Toon are Fact.

All the best to you both (and all on this and other boards - on a personal, not sporting level) for 2018.

Go again Leythe. :thumb:

After supporting the Comics for 60 plus years if there's one thing I have learned about this club is don't take all that's said and printed as FACT. Our present owner should be congratulated on the success he has brought to the club that has put the town back on the Rugby League map in the short time he has been in charge. I have never met him and I don't know him but as far as the Rugby Club in concerned he's the best owner we have had for a long long time.

Running late going to miss my train to Newcastle?

Good on ya, Scrum, agree with all of the above although you do keep messing with Bongser's head with your climactic question marks (you're doing it deliberately now)? :D

Don't change at York and catch The Flying Scotsman, pay only for the "Sprinter" from Manc - Magic is in May. Have a beltin' 61+th (?) year.

Up The Comics! :thumb:

As long as his dispute with Premier Sports does not result in the away fixture not being televised-Leigh fans would not be happy with him if that was to happen.

How many Leigh fans would not be happy ? In fact how many RL fans would not be happy given that Premier has lost the NRL which is the main draw for subscriptions ?

I certainly would not subscribe to Premier just to watch T.W v Leigh !!!

Premier also put a number of Toronto matches on their other channel Freesports number 95 on ordinary TV hoping they show it on there if not will have to find a pub/club with the pay channel.

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