Tried that. Got a response (apparently from Stevo himself) which ignored
my question. Eddie said on WoSL yesterday something like "All being
well, we'll be showing the highlights on next week's WoSL."

This is one area where Sky really lets Rugby League down. Is it because they
don't want to show it (which would surprise me, given some of the padding &
***they fill their sports channels with) or because the Australian
broadcasters demand too high a price for the feed? I know they used that
excuse for not showing full NRL games this season, but then they managed to
show the Grand Final live in it's entirety.

I'd love to see these Tests in full, given that GB are playing NZ here in
November (live on Sky, ironically enough, so they would be promoting their
own forthcoming programmes by default) and, as a Bulls fan,  to see how
Robbie Paul goes for the Kiwis too.

I'll e-mail Eddie & Stevo now...let's see if I get the same standard reply!!

Also, not a word about the Treize Tournoi on Weds.
I feel a follow-up email brewing.

Good point! My expectations that they would cover the Tournoi were so low as
to make me forget the fact they'd ignored it completely.

This is probably due to it being a FASDA competition, organised in
conjunction with the French RL clubs, so Sky just pretend it doesn't exist
(like they did with the ARL comp in Oz last year). Noit that this is a
viable excuse for them to ignore the whole thing, because if they aim to be
a comprehensive sports news service, they could at least give results and a
few clips...

The broadcaster we ought to be targeting on this is Eurosport, because the
French Eurosport channel is, as far as I'm aware, showing games from the
Tournoi, (or it may be on the cable channel AB Sports) and also has a live
broadcast in France every Monday night at 8pm of the top game from the
French First Division Championship.

Anyone know how to contact Eurosport?

Well why not? They showed the non-SL FASDA Grand Final on Sky. They show the
non-SL RL Academy on Sky. They showed the non-SL Australian NRL Grand Final
live on Sky. They will be showing the non-SL GB v NZ Tests live on Sky
(which under the jurisdiction of the RFL).
