Or that BT Sports don't think we are worth visiting!! Exeter v Saints should have been a top four clash and would have no doubt been televised.

I'd have thought a 3pm on Sat would be a prime time for telly.

St K, you've not put a smilie or asterisk so presume you are serious. We got a lot of Fri evenings and we moaned at the club. We moan at the chair and ceo because they are apparently not doing anything (well they're not telling us (Sm2)) and then when we get some Sat fixtures we moan again.(Sm105)(Sm8)

I wasn't moaning.

we aren't playing attractive rugby so the tv companies are less interested in showing our matches live.

There is an obligation to show some matches from each club during the season but they are less likely to choose our matches should they have viable alternatives.

The club can stipulate that they want Saturday 3pm games but if the tv companies want them to move their fixtures, then that is what will generally happen.

I dunno Kenneth. They’re guaranteed to see plenty of tries when we play!
