Does Sky not know there is a Women's Final? Album

Watching the two Men's NPC Semi finals on Sky Television yesterday, repeatedly the commentators mentioned and on the screen outined the teams, times and where games are being played in the 4 men's rugby finals next weekend.The Meads Cup,The Lochore Cup,The ITM Cup and the men's NPC Final but never once was it mentioned the Women's NPC Final was also being played, in Christchurch between top finisher and unbeaten Auckland going for its twelfth title in thirteen years and the home team Canterbury. This game is being played as the curtain raiser to the men's NPC Final between these two provinces also and promises to be a great free flowing game as both teams have tremendous backlines and contain a large number of Black Ferns. With this game being televised live on Sky RUGBYGIRL believes it is a disgrace that this most important match was not highlighted alongside the other four finals coming up and it again shows women's rugbty is still not recognised in the same way as the men's game. We think the NZRU owes the women's game an apology over this, as all the good work getting the final played at AMI Stadium and live on Sky has been tarnished by no one knowing it is on
