Cumbria fans can watch RL Nines finals live on TV

Fans will be able to cheer Cumbria from their armchairs next week after Premier Sports unveiled live coverage of the Rugby League 9s finals at Headingley.

The satellite broadcaster will host a bumper four-hour show from Leeds on Tuesday from 5.45pm, covering 10 matches and the quest to find RL’s fastest man, when seven players go head-to-head in a length-of-the-field sprint.

Cumbria booked their place in the finals for a second successive year after beating St Helens in the final round of weekly matches this week. Whitehaven’s Bradd Crellin and Brett Carter, from Workington Town, were Cumbria’s top performers on the night, amid a fine team effort.

The county side will be up against six Super League clubs – Hull Kingston Rovers, Leeds Rhinos, London Broncos, Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, Warrington Wolves and Wigan Warriors – plus second-tier champions Featherstone Rovers.

The RFL’s Niel Wood said: “The presence of the Premier Sports cameras will provide terrific exposure for the climax of a 9s tournament which has captured the imagination of all those who have witnessed the action in recent weeks.

“Rugby League 9s is all about pace, skill and sheer drama and I’m sure that will be captured by Premier Sports on what promises to be a memorable night, which will showcase the young and emerging talent that is a key part our Super League and Championships competitions.”
