THE 12 Super League clubs have expressed their concerns to the Rugby Football League that no new television deal has been struck.
RFL officials yesterday updated the top-flight clubs on the progress being made to finalise a new contract with the BBC and Sky.
Clubs are anxious for a deal for next year to be finalised so they can confirm playing budgets for Super League IX.
It is now nine months since the start of the television negotiations, with the current Sky deal ending in December.
And at yesterday's Super League meeting in Wakefield, the clubs spelled out their concerns to RFL executive chairman Richard Lewis.
Details on the meeting have been kept under wraps, although Mr Lewis has promised to make contact with both televisioin companies outlining the clubs' worries.
The BBC have offered £22m to screen the Challenge Cup and Test matches over a four-year period from 2004.
But that deal is conditional on the Cup final being switched fromm its traditional date in late spring to late August or early September.
The Super League clubs voted 8-4 in July to accept that condition, much to Sky's disappointment, but that may have to be reconsidered.
