Which means recorded, BBC will not carry a sports draw during the news at that time.


He may have more important things to do than sticking his hand in a bag of balls.
Anyone think the draw may be carried out by someone else, somewhere else ?

It is all going on in the same place but even people attending are not sure what time. I just happened to speak to someone representing a nation this morning and he said he couldn't meet for a beer as he had to be there for 1pm and was hoping to leave at 3pm for a 6pm flight.

It does seem to be a bit better organised than the table in the reception area of the Keepmoat stadium to announce Tony Adams however I'm not sure how much better organised.

There is of course the security aspect and maybe HRH is too much of a risk as public enemy number one to have the every details released just yet.

I agree and therefore, it's unlikely to be drawn "live" on TV and consequently, it would have been well advised to say that the draw will be "shown" at (peak time) on whichever TV channel. Instead, we have "the biggest RL event in history" looking more like school sports day, where everyone may have to hang around for the special guest to give out the prizes.
As I said - no idea how to maximise publicity - none, it's embarrassing.

The RL viewing public have no choice to watch/listen on "catch up"

Given the fact his name is trending all over the shop and he has not spoken publicly since Megxit came to light you would think the marketing experts at #RLWC2021 HQ would have at least used the hashtag 'PrinceHarry' a few times and made a point of the fact this is likely to be his first public comment since it kicked off.

There will be red top journo's desperate to get a question to him here. It is a golden ticket for RL and they appear to be trying to keep it a secret :CRAZY:

What’s wrong with that?
Years in existence and average attendance

Leigh Centurions - 100+ years / Circa 3k
Wakefield Wildcats - 100+ years / Circa 4k
Toronto Wolfpack - 3 years / 9k

People are getting overly excited, he is hosting the draw, not making it.
