am i the only person in the country to see this weekends NRC semi finals as a golden opportunity for sky tv?

remember when Eurosport wanted to show NL matches sky struck a deal because they were committed to NL and didnt want to lose the NRC.

what better way to prove it than to have shown both semis LIVE on sunday afternoon

Whitehaven v Halifax at say 1pm followed by Windows v Cattleprod at say 3.15pm

both matches have the potential to be really good games and excellent adverts for RL outside the holy grail!

BIG SLIP UP SKY!!!

Can't  understand  SKY.  They  show  the  final  but  don't  show  what  should  be  2  very  good  semi's.

How  stupid  are  these  people >:(

I think you will find, the Sky pictures are about 5 seconds behind the Radio Commentary, so unless you have   Sky Plus and watch the game 5 secs delayed the Radio commentary is no good to you.

which surely then put the pictures from sky 10 seconds behind the radio commentary?

if sky pics are behind radio to start with then having sky plus will make no sh@t of difference!
