Wooooooo hoooo... Awesome, looking forward to my Stan sports being more usefulStan and Nine have secured the world cup rights for 2023:
Any price details? Was always going to happen but curious how it stacks up to previous years. Can’t imagine Fox bid competitively.
People would be forced to buy Kayo for 2 months but that's it they wouldn't retain it especially as it's post NRL and AFL season. Doesn't seem worth the investment. They're ditching all rugby content. Even the 7s is now gone from them (another WR (World Rugby) rights holder event).I actually thought they might have gone a bit hard at it.
They're losing content from their sports catalogue each year, securing a global event would at least get them a few more Kayo subscribers for a couple of months.

You'd probably expect a bit of a drop compared to Eng series, but with that number, I'm not sure we'll be getting more Saturday arvo tests anytime soon.Sat Rugby Union

Ironically the rugby was shifted to the 3:30 time slot because of the Cowboys v Rabbitohs game. Which barely outrated the rugby despite having the prime time slot.yeah thats poor. I have a few mungo mates that dont mind the rah rah but didnt even know it was on. But I never trust mungos.....

Lesson for Nine is that Wallabies test match rates higher in prime time then NRL regular season match does. Nine can’t shift the NRL match though.
think the stadium is sold out so you would expect flow-on to viewer numbers. A few at the Wobbs game may come in hot from the Shute Shleld final as well so could be good atmosphere...Gee a great win over the Boks the week before a test in Sydney at the new stadium could not be better timed though. Hopefully big numbers.
It could have been played in prime-time at 7:30AEST and still not clashed with the All Blacks game, which is normally how the matches between Aus/NZ are scheduled.I thought it was 3.30 so it wouldn’t clash with the All Blacks game? And they could promote the ‘triple header festival of rugby’.
