LIVE COVERAGE OF SUNDAY NRL GAMES IN 2015
The NRL announced today that Sunday afternoon matches will be shown live on Channel 9 in 2015.
CEO Dave Smith said the agreement, reached with Channel 9 and Fox Sports, was a coup for all Rugby League fans.
He said it meant Rugby League fans would now be able to watch seven matches live on television every week – two on Channel 9 and five on Fox Sports.
“There is nothing better than watching games live and now it is going to become a prime time reality on Sundays,” Mr Smith said.
“Channel 9 will show Sunday games live throughout the season so fans will see every minute of the game as it happens.
“It means NRL games will be shown live on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday in 2015.”
All 26 Sunday matches will be shown live in Sydney with 23 live matches in Brisbane once daylight saving ends.
Mr Smith said the official schedule for 2015 would be released on Monday.
But he revealed that the first three weeks of Live Sunday Football on Channel 9 would be:
- Round 1 - Panthers v Bulldogs
- Round 2 – Rabbitohs v Roosters
- Round 3 – Rabbitohs v Tigers
