Next weekend, for personal reasons, I will be in London. Does anyone know of anywhere there where the game will be screened?

Thanks.

It’ll be tough to find somewhere I’d have thought at 9am on a Saturday morning. I remember watching a Championshio game in the Sports Cafe years ago but that’s gone out of business.

I typed ‘sports bar’ in to Google and it comes up with the Carlsberg Sports Bar which is in the Empire Casino at Leicester Square. It’s open 24hrs but I’m not well up on whether you need any form of membership to get in to these places or if you can just walk in.

Other then that maybe a Walkabout bar? Maybe they open for breakfast.

Thanks guys. Now TV looks a possible option. I will be staying with my son, he would have to set up an account in advance, but it looks doable from what I can see on their website.

Actually, even that might not work; for reasons too tedious to go into, my son has no broadband at home. He relies on his mobile data. Whether that would be up to the task of driving a TV, I'm not sure.

Will it be live on Wigan TV?

I doubt it as it's a Superleague game and as such covered by their tv rights deal. If his mobile data is up to it he could use a chromecast stick to stream it to the tv.

I have a Chromecast stick myself, although it was a bit of a mission to set it up. Not sure how feasible that is. I may have to accept I won't get to see it live. Obviously I can see the recording on Wigan TV later.

Anyway, I have emailed the Club to ask if they know of anywhere screening the game.

Actually, there's a more general point there, in fact we were talking about this in the pub the other day. When you watch The Superleague Show (and Sky, I guess, but I don't have Sky), they show highlights of every Superleague match. So *someone* is recording (presumably) the whole of every game, not just what we call, in something of a misnomer, the 'televised' games. So whose cameras are these? Sky's? The BBC's? The individual clubs?

I'd put my money on it being the clubs own feed on the non TV games at least,becuase sometimes it does look a bit rough and ready when compared to the stuff sky show.

Just a hunch though.

Thanks.

After a bit of trawling through the internet, it looks like O'Neills of Kigs Cross might be your best bet.

https://www.oneills.co.uk/national-sear ... ings-cross

They open at 8am on Saturday, serve breakfast and have Sky Sports.

I'd phone them first though, if you promise your custom I'm sure they'll put the game on for you...shame you'll be upset by the result! :D
