Free-To-Air Rugby Returns To NZ Screens

The Sports Inc crew are about to take on four months of wind and rain covering New Zealand's favourite game.

Auckland 1st XV TV is a new venture with the Auckland Rugby Union bringing the prestigious 1A schoolboy championship to the screens of rugby fans around the world.

Each Saturday a Match Of The Round will be live streamed at www.aucklandrugby.co.nz with the remaining five games in the Unitec 1A Championship also filmed by the Sports Inc crew.

Beginning with the first ever live broadcast from The Cage as St Peter's take on arch rivals Auckland Grammar, Auckland 1st XV TV will bring together all the tries, hits and highlights with the weekly School Report review show each Sunday on YouTube.

Fronted by the highly-credentialed commentary team of Hamish McKay, Glen Larmer, Bernie McCahill and Brent Ward, Auckland 1st XV TV is a bold, new venture in live digital sport.
