Why a fail thread?
Cause even when adding NZ >> Rugby league is still most popular sport within the 2 countries
Rugby Union is on its knees in Australia>> it will survive but the game is at record lows.
TV deal says it all>> 275mill compared to the Mighty NRL 2 Billion
NZ RUGBY UNION New Zealand Rugby's total income for the past year was $161m, for the 2016/2017 year>
this has increased due to the LIONS TOUR.
League more popular in NZ than rugby? Or am I reading your comment wrong and this thread
i was going off the headline at the begining of the thread
"Using the logic of Rugby League fans and their media, if you include New Zealand and Australia it's abundantly clear that Union rules supreme over League. The Rugby World Cup tv ratings are going to massive. Massive I tell ya when compared with Rugby League.
BTW, is there any place in the world where Rugby League is number one? Certainly not Australia, New Zealand, France, South Africa or England. Tonga perhaps, nah Union rules supreme there too"
Including NZ and AUS (if we are too do that> Rugby League is surpreme easily.
Ratings/crowds/media/sponsors etc League is the standout.. because we are adding AUS
it also states any places where League is not number 1 >> AUS and PNG for starters.
yes FRANCE ENGLAND SOUTH AFRICA NZ Union is number 1
