Stay in touch with the action with ESPN rugby coverage

Rugby fans are being well catered for with the amount of matches on TV at present. For those ardent obsessives who still can't get enough, ESPN rugby coverage provides plenty of action, analysis and highlights to feed their craving.

ESPN, which is available on Sky, BT Vision, Virgin Media, Top Up TV and Tiscali TV, has exclusive live rights to 43 matches from the Aviva Premiership each season, from 2011 running through to 2013. This includes exclusive live coverage of the Aviva Premiership Final and their choice of one of the two semi-final matches.

ESPN's rugby coverage promises to be innovative and adventurous. Many of the live matches will be broadcast from on-site facilities inside the stadium using a custom-built studio set. This will help convey the big-match atmosphere, and bring the kind of in-depth coverage we associate with football to the sport of rugby union.

French rugby has a passionate following and involves some of Europe's strongest clubs, attracting top British players. ESPN will provide live coverage from the Top 14 Orange league. France's premier domestic competition is regarded as one of the strongest leagues in the world, with a style of rugby that might come as a refreshing contrast to some British games.

For full details of all the ESPN rugby coverage schedules, along with subscription costs and a results service, head to their dedicated rugby site, www.www.espnscrum.com. You can catch video highlights, the latest rugby podcast, all the forthcoming fixture dates and up to the minute news on injuries and suspensions.
