Every game should be on TV, says Gibson

Salford three-quarter Ashley Gibson, enthused following his team’s thrilling win over Hull on Friday night, says every Super League match should be shown live on TV.

Gibson, 25, scored a brace of tries as Salford fought back to win 22-20 at the Salford City Stadium and record back-to-back wins in Super League.

After the game, he told the club’s official website: “The team effort was massive to say how much defending we did on out own line! We showed real desire for one another and you could tell we were hungry for the win!

“We knew we could win before the game and had massive belief with the way we had played the last couple of weeks. Phil Veivers  and Sean Long  gave us a gameplan and we stuck to that with Matty Smith and DJ (Dan Holdsworth) leading the way. 

“It was an awesome game to be involved with! Shame it wasn’t on TV. This is why I think every game should be on TV. After all it’s the greatest game of all!”

Currently, two games are shown each week by SKY Sports, usually on Friday and Saturday nights, although at the end of the football season, the Saturday night slot will be replaced by live games on Monday night.

SKY Sports televise a new highlights show every Sunday evening, BBC have their Super League Show highlights programme on Monday, while YouTube clips of all highlights are available via Super League TV.

Subscription channel Premier Sports currently holds the TV rights for the NRL and Championships, which start again next week.
