    The article suggested the NRC broadcast times weren’t locked in yet, we may see the Rising v NSW Country time change to reflect the 5pm timeslot

    no mention of that in the official draw that came out. I did get that Rising game time wrong though, as its in Adelaide. Time updated now.

    “From there a National Rugby Championship match would be broadcast early in the evening before Australia’s final match on home soil prior to departing for Japan the following day.

    It is understood NRC fixtures will be moved around to make the blockbuster afternoon and evening of rugby feasible but teams are yet to receive formal notification of finals start times.“

    Rumour upon rumour upon rumour but if correct could be good for Rugby, nay exceptionally good for rugby.

    10 wants a sport.

    10 wanted 2 A-League matches. But they wanted them as the sole broadcasters. Fox said no then said yes but with a huge price. 10 have withdrawn there offer as I understand it.

    Recent rumours, has the A-League going to the ABC along with the W-League. If this happens 10 will have no sport and 10 want a sport and given they are broadcasting the world cup there is a connection.

    If the A-League does go to the ABC, then 10 will want a match at a regular time slot and being Australian.

    Hopefully one SR match could be arranged for one of the Australian sides to be played at a time that suits 10 every round. For example and not saying this as the time but say 7:30 every Saturday night, one of the Australian SR teams plays in Australia.

    But even if the A-league does not go to the ABC the asking price from Fox has scared 10 off the A-League at this stage.

    Foxtel pay a premium for exclusivity, selling one SR featuring Australian teams at prim time is a pretty significant chunk of the value which Foxtel is paying for. There are only 4 Australian teams, at any one point in time 1 or 2 of those teams will be overseas, and every second week 2 of those teams will be playing each other in a time zone suitable for prime time AEST.

    Selling one game a week might sound palatable, but when you examine the value of what is been sold proportionate to what Foxtel is paying for, its pretty bloody significant and will no doubt impact on what Foxtel is willing to pay.

    A-League is a different story, it will have 12 teams with 11 of those Australian from 2020.

    Here in NZ Sky, who lost the RWC rights to a telco streaming service, have won the SANZAAR rights for another five years. Figure rumoured to be in the order of $NZ400Mn & interestingly as part of the deal NZR now has a 5% stake in Sky which still has ~400K subscribers even after losing almost half their customers in the last few years.

    Super Rugby looks like it's here to stay then.

    Obviously a different environment for them when compared to here, but that's a pretty big vote of confidence in the tournament (for better or worse!)

    Is it Saanzaar rights or NZRU rights WOB? I got impression it was rights to Tests and Mitre 10 etc etc , as thought only Saanzaar could sell the Super rights.

    I think the implication is that SANZAAR did sell them, NZRU act as their agent/representative in this case

    ^ isn't it the case that each member Union gets what it can for the rights to matches staged on their territory & turns over a percentage to SANZAAR? Or did they centralise things after SARU got sprung over-valuing the Currie Cup component of a deal (which they got to keep) thereby undervaluing the RC & SR components that they had to share?

    I think they negotiate the Currie Cup, Mitre 10 and NRC seperately these days, with the proceeds from TRC and Super Rugby going to to a common pot, and then split between each of the 4 members (but not an equal split).

    Details of the revenue and distribution percentage splits seems to be a pretty closely guarded secret.

    Reading the details of this deal - will be interesting to see how the sky equity part of it gets handled via SANZAAR. Maybe that's Sky's offer for thje domestic side of things, or something similar - can't imagine that part of it will be distributed to SANZAAR.
