Rugby Union and Premier League managed to break up the cosy monopoly that NRL and AFL have for most winter weeks on the chart this week.
Game one of the Bledisloe Cup ranked at #5 with Australia’s victory seen by 222,000 on Fox Sports. The game was also simulcast on Network Ten.
Premier League started in the UK last Saturday with the first match of the season, Manchester United v Tottenham, ranking inside the top 20 with 129,000.
Otherwise the NRL and the AFL dominated with all 14 live AFL and NRL games ranking in the top 21 shows.
