Yes quite agree Big Red; Sky and B T Sport should recognise that there are countries other than England in the U.K. They should use the red button facility or sub let Welsh games to S4C.

Have all the TV rights for the European matches been sold to Sky & BT Sport?

Why on earth would people expect this game to be shown live?

Dragons 25-27 Newcastle. According to Wales Online, Dragons had a chance to win with a penalty goal with just four mins to go, but instead attempted to get a bonus-point try but failed.

Because very often the most attractive games are those between teams which are not rated high in their
leagues. The Dragons have produced some scintillating performances this season.

And yet they are bottom but 1 in their Euro group and bottom but 1 in their Guinness Pro14 conference
