In the first thing approaching good news for Australian Rugby in yonks they have secured a deal for Fox to broadcast their abridged 10 week domestic only comp starting in July. Details so far are scarce but the deal does not include the end of year internationals. (For our AFL friends that is where sovereign countries play each other in given sports. Unfortunately for you no sovereign country has ever heard of your game). That deal is still being worked on.

No details of the money involved has been released. I suspect though it was at a massive discount rate. Either way it is at least a sniff of positivity for the game.

We now have deals done by Peter The Great for Rugby League, in full and extended, and partially for Rugby. Gilty had better dismount from his polo pony quick smart and get a deal done for the fumbling game. He's looking decidedly inept at this point in time.

for 22 games between 5 sides,

even if you give each game 250k - 300k = 6million Approx in total for the little comp.

what the good news is (with Castle Gone)
Union may still broker a deal with FOX.

"One in every 24 Australians is now a member of an AFL club, a sign that the national reach of Australian football has never been greater," League CEO Gillon McLachlan said.
