STAR SPANGLED TWITTER!
A massive weekend for Rugby League kicks off around the world on Friday and fans in the USA won't miss out on any of the action! The NRL and SLE semi finals will air on Fox Soccer Plus and Fox Soccer Channel while the USA v Canada Colonial Cup match will be filmed and aired on delay by Canadian TV networks.
The excitment around the coverage of the NRL Semi Finals has not been lost on a couple of international celebrities; Hugh Jackman (Manly Sea Eagles #1 fan) and Russell Crowe (owner of the South Sydney Rabbitohs) who tweeted:-
Finally rugby will be on US TV!! If you love NFL like me you will love this game....South Sydney v Canterbury on Saturday.
