Discussion in 'National Rugby Championship (NRC)' started by EVERYFWDTHINKTHEYREA6OR7, Aug 21, 2014.
I've watched it three times now.
It's a little disappointing but at the same time it's never going to rate if people don't know about it. I think most of the people that did tune in will do so again, and hopefully it builds some momentum.
The clash with the NRL also wouldn't have helped. They have 2 more weeks of Thursday night games featuring top teams. After that there'll be no clash.
Any idea how the NRL match rated? Less then 39,000 might not be great numbers, but if Thursday night NRL isn't pulling any better then it's not so bad.
Yep it was terribly advertised, I know plenty of people that had no idea it was on but would've watched if they knew.
never mind just realised Thursday night NRL is on Nine, not Fox.
Shute Shield clubs video game, thinking NRC teams will no doubt be doing the same. I'd be great if they could be posted in the respective team threads.
From Brett McKay's article over at the roar:
If people were watching Nine they weren't watching Fox.
Seriously - if I was given the opportunity to watch Sydney Uni lose, I don't give a fuck WHICH night its on! Get on it people!
Rebels Radio will be streaming audio of tomorrow's Rising game. http://melbournerebels.com.au/club/fan-zone/reb-radio-live
Even better than TV 'cause you can use your imagination!
Anywhere you can watch today's game at Coogee online?
Don't think there will be according to McKay's article. No time to set it up.
I can hear the numpties at work now:
"B-b-but surely Pfitzy, its just the interwebs. I stream things all the time on my iPhone so it can't be THAT hard, or expensive?"
I posted it elsewhere, but here's a link to the ARU's upload of NRC games to YouTube:
Besides the game of the week, are no other games going to be televised, even after the fact? I'm glad they're putting games up on YouTube, but some more camera angles and even some commentary would be great, and I suppose they'd need a TV crew for that.
Right now I think we should just be grateful for anything we get.

Here's all the uploads in one place.
For some reason eTAM the ratings software isn't showing a result for last Thursday's NRC. Weird. Anyway, we'll check next week.
Hasn't the Shute Shield been rating around 33k?
Played at the same time (on FTA) as many rusted on are already at School or Club venues for 1st XV or First Grade games, and therefore can't be part of the viewing audience.
Ok I am gunna say it. The biggest disappointment to me is not being able to see the NRC games live. I do hope these clubs get the streaming happening and we can find out where and when. Although I must admit I caught the Qld Country vs NSW Country stream because it was front page on the Reds website. I just hope we are given the chance to see them all.
All things considered it's a good sign for the comp if the biggest disappointment is not being able to get enough of it.
