The main panel is 3 ex english players and an english presenter

The player interviews done by an englishman david flatley (Flatley and another english voice got a role during the match too) The main commentator was of course english too...No Italians, no neutrals? 
First 24 minutes was 100% about England zzzz

Pitchside 2 english people and finally 1 Italian , marco bortolami, he had about 30 seconds. That an a 3 second shot or Parisse was their entire Italian perspective? All squeezed around 6 advert breaks?

Just typical pathetic boring bias, no doubt we will spend the afternoon having to listen these Englishmen all discussing 1 team....At the last count its about 10 English people and poor old marco for his 30 second slot

Seriously we need to do the rugby world another favour next and ram swing low back down their loud mouthed English trumpetsWink

Don't forget all the mentions of Jonny Wilkinson and 2003 regardless of how irrelevant the reference is. Also, they never have a presenter on that knows anything about rugby so they just end up making stock references. Their presenter is a football guy. They sometimes have a woman presenter instead but she hasn't been back since that game last year when England had a yellow card and she was asking the pundits how they reckoned England would get on now they're down to TEN men. 

My heart sank when I found that that England v Wales game will be on ITV this year. So hopefully there will be S4C coverage or otherwise I might pop down the pub where I can't hear the commentary anyway.

I read somewhere that ALL Wales games this season are on S4C, so let's hope that's right!

Of course, Italians are too thick or arrogant to learn English, so that could explain it...Confused
