ABC online is reporting that:
Top-flight rugby union will be seen on Aunty for the first time since 1991 with news that ABC TV will televise the inaugural Australian Rugby Championship (ARC).
The ARC will be contested from August 11 until October 14 and will feature teams from Victoria, Western Australia, Queensland, the ACT and NSW.
The deal will give the ABC exclusive TV rights for the competition until 2009, with the games to be televised on ABC TV and the ABC2 digital channel.
[ED: anyone know the name of the ACT team?]
