Anyone seen anything about who will be performing the official version of World in Union this year?


It looks, and sounds, like Rhydian Roberts.
Instrumentation is appalling this time round.

Not a patch on 2011.

You're right, it's not great, is it? I still have a massive soft spot for 2007, as it is so wonderfully cheesy, with lots of singers lending their voices and some wonderful key changes. Plus, IIRC, ITV took an obscure part of the track as their main break sting, so it was fun finding that (I eventually did!)

The wording on that makes it look like he is just cashing in - it's a re-release and they state it is him performing the official RWC song rather than the official version for 2015. Plus he isn't English.

Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

Do the home nations have separate, more partisan, coverage of their games, in particular England v Wales?
