The Whisper Cymru-produced S4C coverage of the Indigo Group Premiership rugby matches broadcast live online on Thursday evenings has drawn over 100,000 views on S4C's digital channels for the first four matches.

Despite the disruption of the pandemic on the league season, the Thursday night live Indigo Prem matches, shown on S4C Clic, YouTube and Facebook, are attracting healthy audiences.

Viewing sessions have exceeded 108,000 views over first four matches, with content being viewed for a total of 11,399 hours.

Social media clips from each match have also been popular on the S4C Chwaraeon accounts.

Lauren Jenkins hosts the Indigo Prem coverage with staunch Welsh club rugby supporter Phil Steele and Rhys ap Wiliam amongst the commentary team.

A host of current and former Wales internationals have provided match analysis, including Ken Owens, Sioned Harries, James Hook, Nicky Robinson and Andrew Coombs.

Lauren Jenkins said: "We've had some excellent contests in the Indigo Group Premiership so far this season and some outstanding tries, with Aberavon's Rhodri Lewis' try against Swansea one of the highlights.

"Thursday night matches mark the start of the rugby weekend and watching them under the floodlights, they do have a special feel to them.

"It's been a bit of a stop-start season so far due to the pandemic, but it's still very early days and there is so much more rugby to be enjoyed between now and the end of the season."

Live Indigo Prem coverage continues with Ebbw Vale v Newport on Thursday 24 February, Swansea v Llandovery on Thursday 3 March and Bridgend v Pontypridd on Thursday 17 March. All 7:30pm.

Highlights of all matches will also be shown following each weekend on the S4C YouTube channel.
