Vote for Round 22 fixture to be streamed online


The RFU Championship is continuing to pave the way in innovation, leading on from Sky Sports’ behind the scenes footage and RefCam with a live Twitter stream of a Round 22 game, as voted for by supporters.

In what will be a first in rugby worldwide, the RFU Championship, the second tier of English professional rugby, will stream a game live on Twitter during the final weekend of league fixtures on Saturday April 20, in association with the Rugby Paper.

Continuing to bring supporters closer to the action, which game is streamed live through the social networking site will be chosen by public vote.

Simply visit and register your vote. The game with the highest number of votes will be streamed live via @RFUChampionship on Saturday April 20.

Voting is now open and will close at midnight, Sunday April 14. Any submissions received after this time will not be counted. 

The chosen game will be announced on Monday April 15.
