Don’t let the Rugby League Four Nations fall to Ashes

By Richard Cowley, Date: 12/4/13

Well it has been a big news week for International Rugby League with the BBC announcing live coverage of All England's 2013 RLWC Group games. The BBC will also broadcast one Quarter and Semi-final along with the World Cup Final. Premier Sports have won the rights to provide live coverage of all 28 RLWC games.

What slipped under the radar a little was the announcement the BBC had also won the broadcast rights for the 2014 and 2016 Four Nations along with the 2017 RLWC. It is assumed that the BBC will only be covering the games England play with the other matches going to a pay TV provider in the UK.

Ryan Hall got a finger to a Liam Farrell kick the final minute of the match, but the video referee ruled that the winger had touched the ball as it was rising and that there was no downward pressure.
