Yet again I have not been able to attend allianz park, not wanting to spread this bug my house has... nor it looks like BBC London seems to be bothered turning up to provide coverage, obviously BBC Somerset are here but even in a football crammed city could they not find money to consistently cover Saracens AS WELL AS quin's


Thanks to talk sport I at least have some coverage...

Rant over

No mention of the result on either BBC news or ITV news, it is as if rugby is not important. Yet football is all over the news. Rugby is a game played by men, where as football is a game played by well you decide.

Roll on the under 20's Rugby World Cup in France.

Football is a game played by men, women, boys, girls. There are leagues for blind players, elderly players. It is also by a mile the most supported sport in the world. To get all precious about why the BBC doesn't do enough to cover rugby is a presumption the he BBC is obliged to follow everyone's minority sport interest, which they cannot afford to do, and for which they don't have distribution channels.

The BBC in my opinion is not great for Rugby Coverage, as Innings says it is a minority sport and therefore they use their resources on sports the majority of people are interested in, if you want decent rugby coverage then I find BT and ESPN as good sources, and obviously the premiership rugby site

Fully understand, but what annoys me is that BBC Radio London, local radio, always seems to have coverage of Quins, both home and away, but never Sarries.Correct me if I'm wrong, but I always thought Barnet was in London.
During the recent game between Northampton and Saracens had to listen to a very biased commentary from Radio Northampton.As it turned out because of the scoreline and the result it was one of the funniest things on radio I have listened to ever, but as a broadcast left a lot to be desired.

I get where you are coming from, But Northampton is a rugby town where as London is definitely not (which is unfortunate)

I'm not old enough to remember grandstand but I've been informed that used to round up lots of different sports ? Maybe we need something like that to be brought back?
