I personally don't think BBC are particularly biased, but they give England far more airtime than other countries. It's understandable to a point, as most watching will be English, but you have to feel for the British licence payers, not all of whom are English obviously.

He gets Donnacha right, kudos for that.

He also habitually adopts a French accent when name-checking French players. That's wholly unnecessary, primarily because he's Welsh.

Having a quiet night in. Struggling to find anything to listen to on the wireless. When I noticed BBC 5 live had a Rugby programme on.
It was looking back on last weekends games.
The breakdown on the time taken talking about teams was
England 25 mins
Scotland 9mins
Wales 1 min
Ireland less than 1min
Danny Ciprani 2 mins
BBC in name only

Scotland got the best deal out of that. 1/10 of the population of England, and over 1/3 of the airtime. And, sure, what is there to say about Wales that hasn't been said already. And Danny Cipriani was talked about as the example of not to hype up a player like Farrell has been.....not because he is in fact a country!!

And last time I looked it wasn't B&IBC


And Steffano2002.....I'd say the feeling is probably mutual! (but just realised you were probably being ironic or something.....or maybe not!) Go Engerland....

All non Ireland games on BBC

For Ireland games i watch the build up on BBC, the commentary on RTE (only if its Ryle Nugent. Yes, i like Ryle Nugent). If Ireland are playing well i watch H/T, F/T on BBC, if they play poorly i watch on RTE. If Ireland lose similarly to the Wales game, i would watch on BBC.

Basically it depends on what mood im in

I'm not being ironic. I can't stand the english as a whole! I'm French, what do you expect? You hate us. We hate you. It's been going on for centuries! At this stage it's probably coded in our DNA...
