Sorry, Rugby Pass apparently have the Rugby Championship rights which starts next weekend, but Sky apparently have the rights to Saturday's game, but aren't showing it.

Neil
amazing!

I have BT sport, Premier sport, and the full sky sports package. I have stopped counting up how much it is costing!!
and still can't see Bledisloe Cup1!

Have to rethink my options.

Maybe need a new thread.........Rugby Not on the Box?

Many thanks

Good man Neill
Many thanks

Coincidentally just in at 7.30am Saturday from a 12 hour "shift" in Ulster Hospital A nd E.........not working but accompanying a patient.

Watching all the Docs and Nurses doing the work the GPs should be doing.


Not ready for sleep yet, so the surprise of the Bledisloe Cup will do very nicely thank you

"The party for the Australian men's rugby team apparently didn't stop after their night of debauchery left some Olympic village rooms in a state of disrepair and two team mascots missing.

Rugby Australia announced Thursday that its entire rugby sevens team has been reprimanded for its behavior on a flight back home, in which they were accused of drunkenly chanting, singing, disrupting crew and vomiting in their seats and toilets, as well as rendering one toilet unusable, according to Inside the Games.'
Apparently the players are being sent by the rugby authorities for alcohol counselling.
A good stiff fine and a suspension should also be applied.

Might have a look at the Scots, in the hope that I might be able to say, 'At least we're better than them.'

Yes - I thought I should avail of the free ticket to give the weemen some support! Although I suspect I will cut a solitary figure on the West Terrace!! :fleg:

Looked in my account. No mention of tickets. I have East terrace membership and a car park ticket but heard nothing from the
Ulster Branch yet. How do they expect us to access the ground at the Saracens game?
