    My understanding is the trend for the sport to use contractors to film their own sport and then sell the content themselves. eg it is not Ch9 production crews filming the Aus Open at the moment. Ch9 just buy the feed for certain games and put their commentators in front of the mike. As do overseas TV channels broadcasting in languages other than English and focused on their countries players.
    I think this is happening in Aus rugby already in NRC, GRR, and the Super trial games etc. Local production by smaller contract crews and fewer cameras and even sometimes cheap casual local commentators.
    Expensive full-time anchor men like Nick McCardle dont fit into this low cost model of streaming sport. And fortunately idiots like Kearns and Marto are not required either.

    One of the many things RA should be cutting their teeth on in the NRC first, before rolling it out to bigger markets. It is what I hoped was signified when they streamed every game on their own website last year.

    So will this mean that Mccardle and Sean Malooney will be on the Rapid Rugby Broadcast? I really hope they ditch the post try on field interveiw with the badger it is quite cringe worthy
