CUPS RUNNETH OVER

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Front Page -

GET pumped for the RWC by re­liv­ing ma­jor mo­ments over its 32-year his­tory. Think Jonah Lomu (pic­tured) steam­rolling down the side­line in 1995; Johnny Wilkinson boot­ing Eng­land to vic­tory in 2003; or Aus­tralia’s 142-0 drub­bing of Namibia the same year. class sta­di­ums to host the best teams in the world, the Ja­panese are primed for this. While Wales may have claimed the No.1 rank­ing, the All Blacks go into the six-week tour­na­ment as favourites. Net­work 10 and Fox Sports share the broad­cast­ing rights, but with a ded­i­cated 24-hour World Cup chan­nel, 503, and all games live and avail­able in 4K, the lat­ter will lead the way; adding spe­cial doc­u­men­taries and the in­tro­duc­tion of match “mi­nis” – of­fer­ing view­ers with an edited pack­age of each game. Aus­tralia play Fiji in its first match at 2.45pm on what is be­ing billed as ‘Su­per Satur­day’ – with France v Ar­gentina at 5.15pm, and New Zealand v South Africa at 7.45pm to fol­low.
