    Sea Eagles and Leeds Rhinos live from 5am EDST after Channel 9 supported a request to broadcast the match on FOX SPORTS.

    The match to determine the best Rugby League club side in the world will be broadcast live on FOX SPORTS 3 from 5am on Monday, March 2.

    Channel 9 will broadcast delayed coverage of the match later that night.

    “This is a great result for Rugby League fans and I must thank Channel 9 and FOX SPORTS for their co-operation in enabling this match to be broadcast live,” NRL Chief Executive, Mr David Gallop, said today.

    “This will be the last chance for Manly fans to watch their side play before Round 1 of the Telstra Premiership, which is now just three weeks away.”

    The World Club Challenge between the Sea Eagles and Rhinos in Leeds will kick-off on Sunday, March 1, at 6pm (local time).

    You'd think they cold have scheduled the game for 7.30pm start there so at least we could watch it with our breakfast.

    Doesn't bother me much as I have Fox, but it does show the total disdain that 9 shows footy fans.

    Time for them to either get the flick or start treating their most valuable commodity with some f*cking respect.

    At least they have allowed Fox to show it live, usually they would have put it on delay and not given the rights to Foxtel.

    As Gronk said, thats a victory for us as I am sure Benny Hinn would have got a run before the game down here.
