Rugby World Cup final update
Next week's Rugby World Cup final in New Zealand will screen live on Nine and is simulcast in HD on GEM.
Next week’s Rugby World Cup final in New Zealand will screen live on Nine at 6:30pm AEDT Sunday October 23rd.
As with this weekend’s matches, the game will be simulcast on GEM in HD.
It’s extremely unusual for Nine to be airing the events on both channels, especially given that it declined to air the NRL Grand Final in HD because it wanted to offer viewers alternative viewing choices.
But complaints about scheduling information, a lack of HD and attention from Media Watch appear to have instigated a change of heart. Hopefully it also instigates some good ratings.
Wide World Of Sports the Ruggy World Cup final, live from Eden Park, Auckland. After nearly 50 games, involving 20 nations, it all comes down to this. Who will win be Rugby Union’s champion of champions for the next four years? Join George Gregan, Andrew Slack along with Ken Sutcliffe for all the action.
NB: 6:30 Syd / Mel, 5:30 Bris. Other cities to be confirmed.
