Today RTE were showing the Ireland v Italy women's match before the France v Scotland match, the match overran and finished at 2.50pm, RTE then went straight to a break with the team for the women's match being replaced by Shane Horgan, Ronan O'Gara etc. and joined their commentary just as the team lineups were on screen missing the National Anthems and applause for Joost van der Westhuizen.
Probably done to try and wind up (commentator) Jonathan Davies. 😉 There's being proud of your country and then commentating/shouting like a bias fan, Davies does the latter far too much unfortunately which spoils the game!
And Brian Moore doesn't? At least they had the two today which cancelled each other out.
Sorry but Davies is far, far worse. His constant 'it's on, it's on' when half the time the ball isn't is incredibly irritating. At least Brian Moore has some composure.
Martyn Williams is a far better and composed Welsh Commentator than Jonathan Davies
