I was having a beer last night with a mate who works for the Beeb
(technical side, not scheduling)and mentioned to him that there was a
certain amount of pissed-off-ness in the ng about our inability to
watch Wales v S.A.
His reply was succinct.
Phone the WRU and ask why they didn't want it shown.
I asked him to explain.
Simple, really. International match at Millenium Stadium. Do we want
to cover it. Yes. DO the WRU want to pay for it. No.
They want it covered in Wales. So we'll show it in Wales. Besides
Fair enough, can anyone find out if the WRU didn't ask for national
coverage (presumably on the cost) ?
