    No I'm not Rah rah boy! This happened. It may been a semi final? But the tv ratings were mentioned in the press. Rugby league was way ahead of the union game on the same day! And virtually the same time as well. You blokes are piss weak! I've seen some lowlife shit but you blokes are piss weak . Go dribble or cry in your Pimms will yu! As you can fathom I don't appreciate disrespectful comment concerning rugby league from churlish union devotees. Go and do some tackling practice you ponse! Have a nice day!

    Nope.Not made up at all. This was highlighted in the media . Or their has been a comparison made from week about comparing the strong RL ratings with the union test ratings? But it was definitely featured in the press at the time. Rugby league pummeled union in tv ratings numbers in Britain. You don't like this but it was reported. It was seen as a good reflection of the rugby league world cup standing amongst the general tv viewing public of Britain.

    So then provide a single source to back up what you're saying. Oh wait, you can't because you lie more than Jay Cartwright. Tell us about the time you shagged 3 playboy bunnies in your dad's caravan.

    Stallion you're a fair dinkum joke. Nobody except a few people on the m62 care about League in England. You are fair dinkum off your rocker

    You are the JOKE! A person whom doesn't concede that rugby league has and is being repressed by rugby union is a fraud! A very ignorant and unsportsmanlike fraud at that! You are truelly PATHETIC!

    As expected not a single mention of head to head union ratings in the broken link posted. All it says is that there were 45 million homes that had access and that the highest rated game had an audience of 2.9 million.

    For comparison here's the ratings from the England vs Wales pool game in the 2015 RWC.

    https://www.theguardian.com/media/2015/sep/28/england-v-wales-rugby-world-cup-tv-audience-ratings

    An 8.3 million average with an 11 million peak. More than triple the NZ-England semi-final in 2013. The most interesting part being that England v Wales was only broadcast on payTV. So the reality is a FTA game accessible to 45 million homes lost out to a game you had to pay to watch by 3 times the numbers.

    Added to that the standard ratings for the RWC in 2015 show multiple matches attracting 8 million + domestically, the final between Australia and NZ had over a million viewers just in NZ which as a portion of population is about 1/4, considering it was played at 4-5am NZ time, kind of a big deal.

    You would have to be mentally defective to think League outrates Union in England and the UK.
