Autumn Nations Cup - TV

Post by neill_m »

Premier Sports have got the rights to show the non-Irish games in Ireland, mirroring Amazon Prime in UK. Ireland games on RTE2.

Great news. Was considering getting a free trial month for Prime just for this....but I'd only end up not cancelling and ending up with yet another TV/Streaming bill!
Alas I have little more than vintage wine and memories.....

For anyone else reading this prime in Ireland may not work. The football wasn't on prime in Ireland as it was on premier sports. There are ways around it though if you already have prime. I'm not sure I can post the details here but it doesn't involve vpn.

Are they broadcasting games in 4K on prime or just old school 720p?

It looked for a long time like Italy were going to get a win. Pity for them but the Scots showed good character to come back

That would be a 4-try bonus point win rather than any other combination?
Could be interesting if affects the final standing - assume prize money depends on final standing?

Fairly sure that there is no prize money for this cup?

Italy v Fiji is now cancelled.
Fiji have gone from 1 to 4 to 29 cases in just over a week.
They might want to look again at their covid bubbles. But it shows how quickly things can get out of hand with the disease. They might not be able to play any game at this stage.

The organisers of the competition have agreed with the broadcasters that both Ireland and Scotland will roll the ball into lineouts 5m from the opponents line!

Quite a clear tackle in the air on Bigger in the lead up to the England try. TMO told him but he refused to look at it, saying that the Welsh player jumped into him.

Romain Poite also refused to look at Elliot Daly's shoulder charge to the head of the Welsh wing on the touchline and gave a scrum peno against Samson Lee despite Mako clearly having collapsed on his tummy thru having his feet too far back. How much advantage do England get, ffs!!! They're so full of themselves, hooping and hollering every couple of seconds, while the commentators big them up the whole time. Painful to watch. I must be a masochist. Wales could be winning this match if their passing was a bit better.....

Thought he fell into the tackler rather than the other way around. He caught him rather than tackled him.

Well, having sat through those too crass and crappy exhibitions of muscularity that passed for Test matches between 6N teams, it's not Covid-19 that threatens the future of international rugby but rather the current Laws and their application.

England v Wales and France v Italy must both have contained the highest % of possession kicked away plus record numbers of tackles in the pro-rugby era and were both terrible spectacles.

JS has a serious challenge in his brief as Director of Rugby Development in World Rugby. No suggestions for him at this point. But absolutely convinced they've got to do something about it.

They’d be doing this regardless of the recent changes.

Going a bit further back there were some changes that make it harder to defend kicks near touch lines. There’s also been a bit of leeway given to hitting players as they land and no leeway given to players catching the ball in terms of holding on.

Some of the comments of Iain Henderson about what and how the Irish pack are trying to improve the line-out are strange, but not unusual.

https://www.the42.ie/iain-henderson-2-5286317-Dec2020/

Over years of working with different teams the same comments have been heard from pack leaders who are convinced they need a "menu" of almost limitless options from the line-out. No team does. An out-half will broadly get ball off the top, from front, centre or back or from a mauled line-out. Each of these alternatives is impacted by how the opposition respond to what has occurred in the seconds it takes most line-outs to be completed.

That is what the Irish half backs and team have to react to. At least in part, the flaw has been in the half backs being too inflexible to react and adjust their choice of options. That must be one of the priorities at the weekend.
