Strange scheduling by Sky, I was of the impression they'd be happy to screen this fixture half a dozen times a season at least. Phil Clarke will be gutted though I expect it'll get a mention should Wigan lead at any point :D

They’d rather show Leeds in a relegation match, proof if any were needed how much a SL-less Leeds would impact with regards to Sky and any future tv deal.

Relegation scrap also more important than the 19th Super League meeting between two teams in less than five years.
I wish everyone would read bramleyrhino's post two or three times just to get it through some thick skulls


Mr bramleyrhino speaks a lot of sense.

Nothing to do with the diminishing quality and boring forward driven game we have, then. We've been of reduced interest to Sky for some time now, which is not all about how good or bad Leeds have been.

The two form sides in what could potentially end up being the Grand Final game or 9th vs 11th? It’s a ridiculous choice by sky, the idea that Leeds have to be on because they’re in danger of going down is also ridiculous.

Think of it as a bonus, you can watch your game, record the TV game and watch it later.

Well they certainly are not interested in promoting our game for both parties. If SKY insist on showing basement games from now on with poor standards of play then could SKY be devaluing our next TV deal.
The new young dynasty of super saints is coming to a ground near you.
