    ehhhh.. The deal will see at least one match shown on Channel 4 and TV3 during each of the six pool stages and may also include some of the knock-out stages.

        Never stopped being the Heineken Cup. The old Musgrave Park v IIP debate!

            That's a very good move. Despite the media coverage, a big chunk of Irish sports fans aren't engaged in provincial rugby due to a lack of access to European games. If it was that way in the 90's and early 00's we wouldn't have built the following we did.

              The only sport I ever seen on channel four is horse racing and football Italia when Gazza joined Lazio and they overhyped it and he was garbage .

                  This does mean that BT have 100pc of the rights now though and are no longer sharing with sky? Skys rugby coverage will be terrible next year but not buying a BT subscription either

                      How much longer do Sky have the rights to Ireland’s June and November games?

                            Ireland v New Zealand will be worth paying for from Sky's PoV. Long term financial stability for the IRFU means staying competitive with New Zealand. If they can do that UK broadcasters like Sky will be happy to pay.

                              Do Ireland sell tour rights? Don't think so, It's the home nation that sells the rights, so Aus have sold their rights to Sky, same with NZ and SA
