Rugby World Cup to be broadcast on USA TV network

3:06 pm on 18 June 2010

Rugby World Cup matches will be broadcast on US network television for the first time after the International Rugby Board announced that NBC Sports and Universal Sports have been awarded the exclusive rights to next year's tournament in New Zealand and the 2015 tournament in England.

The deal has the final of each Rugby World Cup broadcast on NBC and Universal Sports network, as well as coverage of other key matches.
