    What are the Force or GRR actually saying about this though? Are they answering anybody's questions as to why this isn't being shown?

    Is it broadcast in Fiji? If so, can it be streamed somehow?

    You stated you're not complaining about the kick off times in your drivel to me, yet you answered .X.'s post with a ramble about kick off times and how unfair they are. The kick off times are what they are. Either deal with it, or do what you always do and don't go (but please, stop complaining).
    Samoa played in the show case series last year (the one you didn't go to) and there was plenty of people there, so I imagine, as I mentioned in my previous post...… that there will be people who are willing to watch it on Saturday morning (probably too early for you).
    I know you'll answer this with your own world's view of what you read, but it's quite simple; stop complaining about the Force and the injustice they do to you by scheduling games at times or in countries that don't fit into your dimension.
    You're not that gimp TWAS are you? He comes out with some real crap too, so I'm going to put two and two together and just assume that you are.
    I shouldnt even bother giving that rambling wreck of a post the decency of a reply but considering you probably took almost an hr to write it I feel almost obligated to point out just how outlandish and ridiculous your post is.

    The kick off times are shit, there is absolutely no question about it. Somebody more than likely worked out the average crowd from last year for each of the days the games were on and thought hey Fridays had the best avg attendance so lets go with that, despite the fact the crowd was skewed due to wolfmother attending and a ridiculously turbo charged advertising campaign. They probably thought "hey, we can get all the drunks and CBD workers to come too because it is convenient for them and they are already around the stadium anyway hanging in bars spending big on food and drinks, woolah" just forget about the agony that young junior players and young families have to go through to actually get to an 8pm Friday game in the city when peak hr traffic is raging and dragging kids there on a school day tired is incredibly painful and ofcourse with a good chunk of them needing to get up at 6am saturday to get to an 8am junior rugby match saturday morning and thought "well it will work out cause we got 19k to a game last year, we probably wont need em". Problem is they actually do need them, but instead they apparently bowed down to izzy like religous demands not to play on one of the most Family friendly days, a sunday, and also ruled Saturdays out too due to some incredible reason that somehow Club players wouldnt be able to attend despite playing every game this year at 8pm. I question how anyone playing a 330pm game cant make an 8pm kickoff if this is the time they insist on playing. Lets be honest club players could easily make 630pm games, especially if they were one off occasions. But they want them to enjoy their after drinks at the expense of all the juniors and families that might actually be interested in watching this new product that seems deliberately aimed at them with fire works and light shows, carnival rides etc.

    And as for the fact we cant even watch the Force biggest game of the year against Fiji who actually beat them in the NRC, but no instead we get a game that no one really cares about, admittedly a few people will watch, but its no where near as big as the Fiji Force game that most of us wanted to see, especially being in Fiji. I see no reason why they have bothered to put Samoa and Fiji on every possible TV network, pay TV and Free to air, and also put it on Kayo and Sbs on demand when they could have put atleast the Fiji Force game on one of those next week for the Force game. It sucks if you were really looking forward to the Fiji Force game.

    This is quite possibly going to sound ignorant and I apologise in advance.

    Does Fiji have the infrastructure to support the live stream of a sporting event?

    I would assume so, even then, I would have thought that one Fiji TV station would cover it, and maybe someone could stream it that way

    was it a dream, or did we watch a live streamed NRC game from Fiji not that long ago?

    I wasn't available to watch the game, but I saw the highlights and I really want to catch a replay. It looked amazing!

    The Drua streamed all of their home games last season. But the broadcast on the weekend was vastly superior in terms of overall production quality.

    Some great tries scored. When you think about it, the GRR rule variations are pretty much made for the way the PI teams play. Ditto Panasonic.
