Melbourne Storm celebrate a Cameron Smith try

Channel Nine’s treatment of Melbourne rugby league fans has been poor, with NRL games delayed until midnight on their main channel, even ones including the Storm, until this season.

This year, two live Sunday games involving the Melbourne Storm have been on Channel Nine, with a third this week against Wests Tigers.

And don’t forget the amount of representative rugby league, like State of Origin and the Test match in May, went live into Melbourne.

And the Storm have a rare Friday night game on July 22 against Brisbane at AAMI Park.

Hopefully this game will be shown live in Melbourne to show that Channel Nine has really changed their mind about league going live into Melbourne.
