    I considered going, but the loss against the All Blacks and the fact it was essentially a reserve team took any interest i had away from travelling all that way.

    WC game v Fiji
    319k on FTA (inc regionals). 217k on Fox

    Not quite the same time, but more viewers in both Sydney and Brisbane watched the AFL final on seven than the rugby on 10

    oddly enough NZ v SA top ranked stream of the world cup this week on Oztam VPM - beating out both AFL prelims, both nrl semis and the Aus v Fiji WC game.

    Most other RWC games on Fox around 30-40k

    Although the Australian rugby team fought out a tough 39-21 victory over Fiji in its first game at the 2019 Rugby World Cup on Saturday, a study has found more than half the country is unaware the tournament is even on.

    If it makes anyone feel better the NRL GF saw their lowest ratings in 16 years. A measly 2.9 million..
    I wonder how much Fox shelled out for the RWC - 48 games and pretty much 90% with decent ratings must see a decent return for them. Especially with Kayo as well.

    Yeah, TV ratings are down across the board. It's a changing landscape out there

    The ratings are not just about numbers, the demographics are important, too. I would hope that the rugby audience is pretty attractive to blue chip advertisers.

    The fact that both the AFL and NRL grand finals were predicted to be fairly one sided affairs wouldn't have helped the ratings. I suspect some of your more casual observers wouldn't have bothered watching because they thought they'd just see a flogging (as was the case in the AFL).

    Not about Australia, but the RWC seems to be picking up some traction in Japan.

    46.1% of viewers in the 11th most populated country on the planet is a decent effort.

    I like that because one country alone has just dwarfed mungo's global tally by close to 900%. Tell me what sport is growing...

    Nah- just like when despite the australian media’s irrational hyperbole about mungo’s place in the world, you have these examples of how it is going nowhere. Despite being all about money.. now global rugby is so big- i’ll keep enjoying watching.

    Troll mode on.

    Your first sentence doesn't make sense

    just like when despite the australian media’s irrational hyperbole about mungo’s place in the world, you have these examples of how it is going nowhere.

    The article you were commenting on does not talk about or have anything to do with rugby league. The Australian media as far as I read it (and pretty much media everywhere) do not try and argue rugby leagues international presence is any bigger then it is. Which is dwarfed by the international presence of rugby union.

    Your comments read like you have insecurities about rugby league to be honest and I feel it would be thereaupetic for you to actually talk to your therapist about your feelings on rugby league, or type them out here and I am sure if you are going to get support anywhere its from the good people of this website.

    to be honest I wont tell anyone if you deep down have a guilty pleasure of watching the NRL.
