Sky are going to cover Briz (because its good for advertising revenue) & games in and around their studio in West London (because its cheap). I can't see them paying to send staff and equipment over the water to St Peter and as I have already booked and paid for flights to the Jersey away matches to get reasonable priced tickets I personally hope they don't cover any of Jersey's away games as Sky invariably want to change the date or kick off time and it would significantly increase the cost and result in me missing the game. I hope the announcement by Sky on the Pirates match is in good time so that away supporters haven't committed to expensive travel and accommodation costs. Sky should sort out their schedule before the end of July IMO.

I think the cricket club object to heavy lorries ploughing up the outfield at Clifton Lane in a muddy winter, and Sky are probably no keener at the prospect of setting it all up with nothing that would offer a ready-made camera position.
That's easy for you to say.

Bris v Pirates (now changed to Dec 22nd)  on SKY. Actually I think the 22nd is better for anyone going from Cornwall. Getting back at midnight on the 23rd would have put some off. Now it's on telly, though, I guess many of us will stay home in the warm and watch it.

2 Donny games now confirmed for Sky Television:

Donny v Pirates - now Sunday 29th October 3pm
Donny v Leeds Carnegie - now Friday 29th December 7.45pm KO.

ironically they were the two fixtures that were televised at Castle Park last season (not including play-offs). hope to see plenty of Pirates and Carnegie fans at CP for those two fixtures. should be two cracking games IMO.

It was also on Sky Sports Action HD Channel and was filmed by Sky. Sky Mix is a new free-to-air channel they are trying out. Loads of people had difficulty in finding the channel. Not good !

It was included in my Virgin Media package, which was great because the game being moved to Sunday caused a clash with the NFL game at Wembley, so I watched it on TiVo. The quality of the coverage was good, but they had a lot of technical difficulties. A surprise as they are only about 3 miles from the Sky offices.

Irish v Reds game is confirmed on Sky on Sunday January 27th, with k-o 15 mins earlier than originally scheduled at 1.45pm. Just the 2nd time in 6.5 seasons that we'll have been on Sky, the other being the famous double-header weekend in Sept '13 when we played Plymouth at Sandy Pk.

Brilliant! Hope to see a decent Jersey turn out. Thumbs Up

Yes I remember the Sandy Park game. There was a tip tackle on a Jersey player made by an Albion player which should have seen a red card. Maybe Dave Felton if I recall correctly? Wow that takes me back!
Jeeeeerseeeeeeey!!!

It seems churlish to whinge about the lack of  sky time when they have finally decided to broadcast a Jersey match.  I'm going to Reading to see it anyway but will hope to see a replay of a Jersey win when I get home and perhaps a beer a two. I hope Sean opens the clubhouse at St Peter that day and it absolutely rocks. Treat me gently in Reading please.
