TV deal agreed for RaboDirect PRO12 league

Sky Sports will screen RaboDirect PRO12 games involving Edinburgh and Glasgow from 2014/15.

Scottish Rugby director of commercial operations, communications and public Affairs, Dominic McKay, said: ““It’s great news for our clubs, Edinburgh Rugby and Glasgow Warriors.”

John Feehan, the league’s chief executive, said: “The quality of our competition is such that 24 out of the 37 players selected for the 2013 Lions Tour to Australia play in the RaboDirect PRO12.”

Celtic Rugby are still in negotiations with other broadcasters and will be announcing further agreements in due course.
