  • Tongan squad for their Northern tour. Good to see Penikolo Latu getting his first call-up!

  • Greig Laidlaw has been laid low with an ankle fracture. No Autumn tests for the Scots captain.



  • New Zealand Rugby (NZR) and SKY will partner to livestream the All Blacks upcoming matches against the UK Barbarians and a France XV and the Maori All Blacks matches against Canada and the French Barbarians, in a move designed to grow the global fan base for the teams in black.
    
    The partnership will see all four games livestreamed as pay-per-view events on AllBlacksTV.com and will be available to both international and New Zealand based fans. The livestream will be available on all modern web and mobile browsers delivered in HD quality, depending on the viewer's bandwidth. Those who arrive late to the livestream, will have the ability to rewind to the beginning of the game at any time. 
    
    SKY and Fan Pass subscribers will still be able to watch all these games, plus the Tests from the Vista 2017 All Blacks Northern Tour, through their normal subscription. 
    
    New Zealand-based fans can purchase the livestream for selected individual matches on AllBlacksTV.com for NZD $24.99 per All Blacks match and NZD $14.99 for each Maori All Blacks match. The matches can be watched live or on-demand after the event. 
    
    SKY subscribers can watch the four games live on SKY, delayed on Prime, and also available on SKY Go. Fan Pass customers can watch all matches live with their monthly subscription – which is NZD $99 for all seven All Blacks and Maori All Blacks matches in November (plus all the other sport broadcasted on SKY Sport 1-4 that month).

  • @stargazer Damn, that's not cheap, especially when they're competing with other streams, both legal and illegal.



  • @nepia Yes, that's what I thought, too. Illegal streams are usually of terrible quality though; I expect the NZR stream to be top notch. Or it should be.



  • My thoughts too considering it isn't for the test matches.

    They were in the past, not so much anymore (I hear).



  • The ABs stream for the Ireland Chicago game (and Maori-USA night before) wasn't THAT great.



  • @kiwimurph If that's the case, then the price for watching these games is absolutely ridiculous.

    Yeah nice thought but they've partnered with sky...

    Do you remember how much it was? I remember it being 6 or 7 bucks?

    I would think people pay for these streams if they are reasonably prized, for someone who don't really have access to sh rugby, I welcomed the Chicago stream, but probably won't ship that much for the upcoming games.



  • @sapetyvi Yeah I think that was about right price wise.



  • $25 is way too much, with 10+ tests a year...

    There are plenty of quality streams out there for bigger games like this, but they do crash still (as does SkyGo)



  • Australia:

    France have lost Camille Lopez (Clermont), who - last night - suffered a broken leg in one of the most horrific accidents I've seen in rugby recently. Sickening. He has already had surgery and will be out for at least 5 months.

    Dude, no picture no post.



  • @billy-tell I didn't want to see that again, so didn't search for a clip. Poor lad.



  • I sure as hell want to see a 200% improvement and some fireworks on this November tour rather than that dull and dumb shit show they served up on Saturday. Christ if we shovel the ball from side to side in the vague hope that someone will do something with it as we did v Aus - the bloody Barbarians will eat us alive, let alone France Wales or Scotland.
    We need a bloody plan of attack first and foremost, which I hasten to add seemed to be completely lacking on Saturday. We can't afford to give the latitude we gave against Aus, and perhaps a think tank from the coaches and senior players on managing the game better may be in order. A freshen-up in the coaches box is long overdue

    Not a particularly strong looking team.
    Unknowns in their halves.
