Tomorrow’s international is being televised by the BBC and the Sports Twitter feed comes up with this… jeez…

 

F*** me that's a pony effort from the Beeb

Maybe a double bluff from a northern BBC mole showing sh*** tackling technique #shirttuggingposhhnobheads

And if you can actually be bothered to read the full thing which the OP chooses not to include, the quote is from Shaun Wane on basis of since WC was pushed back 12 months.

And the National a Scottish paper quotes Shaun as stating:

‘We’re desperate to get back playing again and it’s going to be a full house over there so we need to make sure we perform the best we can.’

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.

The issue isn't with the article but with the image.

Sorry, do you mean professional players wanting to get out there and play for their country on National TV.

I think they received a little bit of feedback...

No, the fact that the image accompanying the article showed a RU match, and they refer to the three lions, which of course are our association football team, not RL team name.

It’s the picture of of a different sport and the reference to three lions (football) that’s the problem!! A quick glance at the picture and you think it was union they were talking about!!

I’d even throw in the use of #bbcrugby when they use #bbcrl for their Challenge Cup coverage

The #BBCRL hashtag also moonlights for BBC Radio Leicester.

I bet that was orchestrated by Leicester Tigers and all. 

The radio station's social media stats must go haywire every time there's RL on the BBC.

Listening to Look North now. Just announced that Jamaica are playing v England at Featherstone on Sunday. A really good and positive piece, but a glaring inaccuracy.

And once again, no mention on BBC Breakfast sport section of the two internationals today which are both being covered live by.......The BBC!

Things like this are what is hard to take for me. We see the BBC regularly promote the hell out of stuff they show. Yet all too often they ignore RL even when they are showing it for over 4 hours on a Saturday afternoon.

I could understand if Sky were showing this or it wasn't televised or even if the BBC wasn't even aware it was taking place but they are bleeding showing it. There is no excuse.
