Was wondering how 6+1=8. Not many in favour of South Africa joining but if they did I guess we'd lose the two free weekends and have 21 games over 7 weeks, with each team getting a one week break (though unlucky for the team who gets that in week 1 or week 7).


Regarding the BBC and sports rights in general - obviously not the first time the charter has been up for renewal but with much talk about what happens from 2027 surely that complicates bidding for sports rights that go beyond that date - notably the next Olympic deal.

It's great that everybody gets sarcasm.

Apart from England all live rights for all home nations outside of major championships are with Sky Sports.


Are you sure about that? Wales are on C4 after many years on BBC, Ireland are on C4, Scotland are BBC/BT shared, England are on Sky with BBC having highlights. This is the November internationals.
The summer tours are generally on Sky by virtue of them having the Sanzar rights.

In other news - the 6-Nations committee have agreed to unify the TV rights:

...which also means the RFU have have handed control of their lucrative Sky deal to the 6N. I'm surprised and not surprised.

I was replying to a question about association football not rugby football.

You're right, something didn't seem quite right when I read yours but couldn't put a finger on it. The joys of two parallel conversations!! Apologies.

Some cursory searching seems to indicate that previously postponed domestic matches can now in certain circumstances be played alongside UEFA CL/EL fixtures. The active scheduling of 'new' matches would still fall fail of the regulations. The continuing presence of Manchester City in the CL would seem to cover playing this match in the opposite match week too.

More importantly, it clashes with the Newport v Salford match in the EFL Trophy that they already have scheduled.

Does anyone know how it works for broadcasters if events they have the rights for get cancelled. Do they get a refund on the rights.

Why would they get a refund? They'd have the rights for when the event is rescheduled. Given the detail in rights deals I'd expect there to be a clause that covers events being postponed due to circumstances outside the organisers control.

I think it was only the Wales home matches this summer, the world cup warm up matches, that were on C4, and not the autumn internationals in Wales.

What about if they not and are simply cancelled and never held.
