Isn't the Lions tour sold through SANZAR? Do Sky already have the rights to that next year?
The Lions tours are negotiated, I believe, with the four home unions tours committee, not Sanzar. The SANZAR games are the rugby championship, Super rugby, and summer tours to the SANZAR countries, excluding Argentina.
Regards WWE, Aaron Chalmers quoted Channel 5's tweet about the deal this morning.
