    Would be good to see Italy get some coverage hopefully on the back of some reasonable media coverage. Like Scotland last year, it is a shame to see strong teams like these om the park without it really benefiting RL in those countries.

    Kind of wonder if Fox would be currently showing old RLWC games on Fox League if they got the gig. Certainly like to rerun old Origins / Grand Finals in the lead up to those events. Rewatched the 1995 tournament last night via good old You Tube.

    Further to this ...... in the future will Fox Sports show / be able to show games of the RLWC on their Fox League channel ? Would be a great shame if the games global show piece wasn't aired at anytime on the dedicated RL channel !

    Forgot that Ireland was also missing a Broadcaster from the original list.

    Appears eir Sports has picked up all games.

    Don't know of any Broadcasters in Canada. SportsNet World doesn't appear to have the Men's tournament at least.

    I really don't get that for an online only boadcaster. They have a platform where they are not constricted by limited bandwidth and potentially competing events that traditional broadcasters are.

    OK so I have a dear old RL-loving mate living in Lisbon, Portugal … will he be able to watch it on TV there?

    And/or will the 7Live app work there???

    thanks
