Are they utilizing the old Nine News Local NSW studio space for Stan Sport’s RWC coverage as well or is it just being used for World Cup Weekly?

That’s the stylised branding, yes.

According to The Australian, many fans were not happy with Stan Sport’s streaming of Rugby World Cup bronze final between England and Argentina on Saturday morning, complaining the coverage was constantly hit by buffering issues.

Stan is far and away the best sports streamer in the country in my experience.

That’s the problem for streamers, the public are dumb and blame their own internet issues on the platform.

The same organisation that doesn’t mention Kayo has the same rubbish in buffering and freezing.

Now why would that be? Oh that’s right, anything to hit nine. :man_facepalming:

Former Wallaby Drew Mitchell takes Stan Sport to court

Former Wallabies star Drew Mitchell is taking legal action against Stan, the streaming service where he is employed as a commentator, after he was told his contract would not be renewed for next year’s rugby season, reports Nine Publishing’s Zoe Samios.

Mitchell will not appear in Stan Sport’s rugby commentary line-up from 2024, and is taking the streaming service to the Fair Work Commission alleging contraventions of workplace law.

The details of the dispute are not publicly available, but Mitchell appeared at a mediation alongside Stan Sport boss Ben Kimber on Wednesday.
