Did they not do it for the Leeds and Wigan games in 2015 when Ryan Hall scored at the death to secure the LLS for Leeds at Huddersfield?

Not sure, i know it is something they can do, but they don't spend a huge amount on the OB kit for RL.

The OB wagons are all able to do the same stuff..... Its the outsourced cost kf the riggers and drivers that costs them more. A rigger can earn £500 for set up/take down, £200 more if they are working with a cameraman during the game and another £400 if the also drive the wagon.....£1,100 for a days work.... Nice work if you can get it!
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

Have Sky ever done picture in picture for British RL?


No but there's never really been this kind of final day decision maker where dependant on the results any obe of 3 could go down.

They have done it in football when thins like tjis have transpired and they have chosen a relegation battle game over Wigan v saints this year so you never know.

I take the riggers as part of the OB cost, it sounds a lot of money but they do long days and it isn' 5 days a week 46 weeks of the year. Most are self employed so pay Corporation Tax, Insurances etc. But that is a different conversation for The Sin Bin in the off season!

Yeah I know thanks, just typical of Sky though. They did it 6 or 7 years ago with the Challenge Cup, but opted out of showing Leigh v Leeds.
