Negotiations between Rugby Australia and Fox Sports for a new broadcasting rights deal have broken deal, with the pay-TV provider choosing not to renew the deal. The current five-year deal is worth $57m a year and is set to expire at the end of 2020. Rugby Australia is expected to seek a broadcasting rights deal with Optus; the Ten Network, which is Fox Sports’ broadcast partner, may continue to show some matches on free-to-air TV. Fox Sports has held the rugby broadcasting rights since 1996.
