If last week’s game is typical of the picture quality on this channel don’t expect anything special. In fact it’s so poor it’s barely watchable.

Thanks for tip SGGS. I watched Loughborough play Cardiff Met a couple of weeks ago on SKY 424. The picture was fine, plus it was a good game.

Cracking game and much better quality than last week. I think Northumbria’s next game away to Leeds Beckett is live on tv next Wednesday.

I love the simplicity of these broadcasts,the guys just get on with playing rugby. Last night's game was exciting, going right down to the wire with Durham grabbing a last minute try to win.

The standard of rugby is really good and going in to next week's last round of games I believe Northumbria will top the league just pipping Exeter and Cardiff Met if they can win in Leeds.

Northumbria edged out 33-30 by Leeds Beckett to lose out to Exeter. No one's got a trophy to parade at the Big One.

Northumbria fought back from an 11 point half time deficit and nearly pulled it off at the death, but in spite of several attacks getting closer to the line, they just couldn't manage the try, penalty or drop goal to earn at least a tie that would have seen them win the league. The lads understandably looked crestfallen after the final whistle but should be proud of themselves for a fine season. Once again pipped by Exeter.

Northumbria have a BUCS Cup quarter final at KP on the Weds after The Big One, so still plenty to play for.

Apologies it just looked a bit odd with KO details.

When this was flagged up I watched it on FreeSport and enjoyed it. My series link unexpectedly recorded for me the English Schools U-15 and U-18 semis and finals a gave me 8 excellent games of rugby. There are some big 15 year olds around these days.
