Hope you'll excuse this dim Londoner's question, but was rugby league a regular fixture on Yorkshire? I'd always associated it with the BBC.
Although the Beeb showed the Challenge Cup and the Regal Trophy, there was a period when the league itself was on Granada and Yorkshire, Rugby League Live being quite a regular fixture on Granada on Saturday afternoons in the early 90s. I think it ended in 1992.
Clive Tyldesley had commentated on quite a few live rugby league matches for Granada before he did his first live football commentary for ITV.
