More on streaming, governance and the players, positivity and we put our £5.50 away as the Challenge Cup has a new sponsor, and a new home for the Women's Final!


Forty20 LIVE: 14th January 2019

The season draws ever closer, and we wonder does anyone else know outside the Rugby League bubble? We look at the latest pre-season results and moves, wonder about inconsistencies in drugs bans, and are on the hunt for "fit" players. Viewer Sandy's word, not ours...

It's our last live show of 2018, and we end it without The Legend.

Forty20 LIVE: 8th October 2018

Phil was at the Man of Steel Awards, so John Davidson was a more than adequate replacement to discuss the Super League semi-finals, and next Saturday's Grand Final between Wigan and Warrington, the Million Pound Game and London's return to the top flight, plus Bradford's promotion, the Women's semi finals and what more we can do to sell tickets and improve our media coverage...
