    Good job Ex.

    So Kayo (ie Fox) are showing Force games, but Fox have supposedly walked away from Super and the RA.

    I hope so. I kept kayo after the nrc because I expected this would be the case. It will be disappointing to think that fox could mistake my support of the force for support of rugby australia

    Dont worry about it. They'll know you really kept it so you can watch EGLER.

    I am pretty sure all Rapid Rugby games will be on Youtube for free or through the Rapid Rugby website, i read this somewhere but can't rember exactly. I hope this is the case, free is good. Hopefully they can build a supporter base then make money in a few years.

    It was on the fixture magnets handed out at the fan day that all games will be free on the Rapid Rugby website.

    Without any exposure to Free to air the sport will struggle to take off. It needs to be on a channel where people can accidently stumble onto the channel, let it peak their interests, and then maybe start following the sport.

    The problem with Kayo is that people open the app specifically to watch certain sports, they dont tend to casual watch sporting events they arent familiar with.

    On top of that having it free online has the same impact as above, someone who doesnt follow GRR isnt going to go seeking the sport out on the website unless they are deliberatly putting it on to follow or watch.

    If it was on a foxsports channel then people would accidently stumble on it and may watch a bit of it and then start to follow it, its the same theory is having it on Free to air TV, it may peak peoples interests enough for them to start following it from accidently changing onto the channel its on.

    I mean its fantastic that it is available for free and available through the website etc but a shame it hasnt found its way on Free to Air where all the real ratings apparently are or the potential to grow a sport lies.

    So are any of the games not featuring the Force on Kayo or just Force games?
