Sky let down

So having sat down to watch the match on sky, they have now abandoned it totally. But all is not lost, they are going to show it in its entirety. AT THREE IN THE MORNING!

Am I alone in thinking if this had been a football match, or even one of the European rugby matches they didn’t lose to BT Sport this would not have happened? Still, they have probably sent their top engineers and outside broadcast team to show some fat blokes throwing darts instead.

The real shame is that they have caused this match to be played at 7.45 p.m. on a snowy winter's night meaning that many home and away supporters will be unable to attend. Bet the players are a bit cold also.
So now the supporters unable to attend have gone to the pub to watch in vain.
Still there is still the club twitter feed!

Club twitter feed link below, note that seems to have technical issues also:

I have just been trying to find a dodgy live stream with no joy.

Donny down to 14 men after a red card. But they score straight after the restart to make it 22-13!

We need to get it going big time!

Ollie Stedman now on - he has a bit of a grudge against Knights, I think.

If I was in charge of media scrutiny for UK Plc. I would banish Sky to a remote island possibly South Georgia in the South Atlantic.

I despise the organisation with a passion.

Another close win. Would have been nice to watch but would rather they won a game I couldn’t see than lose a game I could! Still not going to watch it at 3:30 am, but will see if I can record it.

Indeed it has.

Credit to donny mind. Played 40 plus with 14 men. Any win for us at Castle park is a good one.

Think it's on at 11.00 in the morning as well Grybz. How the hell they expect anybody to watch at 3 am is bloody ridiculous. The Test Match is on then!



COME ON LEEDS.
We've been through it all together.

Twas a good game and Donny never gave up despite our superiority in numbers. The red card was for a No Arm Head to Head tackle on Homer as he went to lift the ball from a ruck. Decision made by the TMO.
Backline created tries once Fred came on

Stedman was on a mission and Bambi had Duracell batteries for Christmas!!!

We still had to suffer the Sky commentators rabbiting on - we could hear them as we were stood in front the TV tower.

Totally agree the outage wouldn't had happened if it was fannyball.

For those without the "benefit" of a Sky, or BT, subscription, remember there is the first-ever terrestrial live Premiership match on Channel 5 today, KO 4.00 p.m. It's Northampton versus Harlequins at Twickenham, punditry starts at 3.30 p.m.

David Flatman awaits........

After a lot of confusion about what was going on, I resigned myself to setting an alarm for 3.30. Even then they delayed t till 3.45! I'd forked out for a Sky Sports Day Pass specially and was damned if I was going to miss it 'live'. I decided that I'd save £12 plus petrol from York to do it this way and stay a bit warmer.

Pack did really well, especially in the scrum, and we created a few things behind at times. As said above, any win at Castle Park is a good effort. Bainbridge looks quicker than any of our centres!

Whether you saw the match in front of your eyes, on Sky at 3.45 a.m. or whatever, the result is that we are up to third in the table. I hoped at the start of the season we could end in a "virtual play-off place" i.e. in the top 4 and I think we have a good chance of achieving this.
However, I refuse to get too carried away as these slender victories could turn to slender defeats quite easily unless we really get our whole act together. But wouldn't it be good if the forwards and backs could both play well at the same time?

By Jimmy's post match it was a similar performance to the last home game.

Hi JDH, just checked it out, there are two adverts and then it worked for me. Perhaps you have an ad-blocker? Though they eliminate those pesky ads, many sites now cut you out unless you disable the ad-block. Sadly.
