RugbyPass has acquired global rights to stream full match replays on its RugbyPass TV platform after each match ends. It can also exploit highlights and clips rights across the RugbyPass Network.

MLR’s 2019 season – the second season of the nascent league – will conclude on June 2.

US media group Discovery has a minority stake in RugbyPass.
