    Super League rugby side Wigan Warriors Chair Ian Lenagan "has questioned the wisdom" of the league's new TV deal, according to the BBC. The Super League last week revealed a new five-year deal with Sky worth around £200M ($325M), to begin when the current contract expires at the end of '16. Lenagan: "It is a dreadful commercial decision to be agreeing with three years to go on the current deal. We are now shut out from any increase in the value of broadcasting rights over an eight-year period."
