Not sure Scotland were that convincing. 15 v 15 would have been a very different game imho

Convincing on the scoreboard.

England don't wolf Samoa as much as I thought they would. Still, a comfortable win.

Seemed clearcut at the time. I think the ref only reviewed it looking for mitigation.

Well RTE seem convinced you boys are watching, every time they have a competition for
future fixture tickets they give viewers from NI a number to call. Maybe some distinguished gentlemen on here just aren't that tech saavy?

It's not about tech savvy. Most of us *could* receive an RTE2 signal; the question becomes - is it worth the outlay in varying ones standard tech set up in order to watch 3 matches/year?

So there is access and it is really a question of choice. No issue therefore.

Well we could all just subscribe to sky sports too. That would be the cheaper option for many. (Or go to the pub ...)

Indeed. We have lots of options. We are pretty lucky really.

Slightly off topic but relevant. I see from Irish Times that RTE have lost the free to air rights for the 6 Nations.
To the best of my knowledge there is no TV3 signal in Northern Ireland unless you are living close to the border and get a leaked signal.
Will the BBC be covering all Irelands matches or just those covering the Home Nations or are the Nortnern Province being forgotten once again ?
