Re: Sort your shit out SANZAAR!

Test rugby isn’t where the money is when it comes to streaming. People could just get a subscription for a few weeks and then cancel when the tests are over.

Re: Sort your shit out SANZAAR!

Is it not still branded as Super Rugby? Nope. the long and the short of it is that the comps aren’t on broadcast TV and have become very niche. Not at all. This season's audience is up 162% year on year. 1.3 million viewers for last weekend's AU game https://www.mediaweek.com.au/its-a-great-sport-n...

But if Valetini can do his thing......
Lonergan at halfback is quality and keen to see how he goes with the start. Fines on the bench is a gun too. The Saders deserve to be favourites but not at those odds. The Brumbies are really well drilled and a really well balanced team from 1-15.
