    MOTM Italy v France



    Towards the end of the game I was watching on BBC and when they gave MOTM to Chabal they showed a few clips of his tries etc. I switched over to RTE and lo and behold they had also just awarded him MOTM and were showing the same clips. I know RTE take their coverage as a feed from some foreign channel,possibly via the BBC but that seems to mean they're told who the BBC MOTM is and "would you mind going along with that". As it happens Chabal was outstanding but what if RTE had not nominated him?

    No i am fairly certain that it is the BBC commentators that get to select the man of the match and their selection becomes the official RBS man of the match!! The other broadcasters just agree with it as they have no power to change it!

      AFAIK, the domestic broadcaster decides on the clips and replays - you often here commentators saying "we need to see the other angle" again, obviously unable to make it happen.


      And Chabal was head and shoulders man of the match. Fierce performance against an Italian pack that didn't look like it contained some of the fiercest forwards around.

        Fair enough,Rob that would have to explain it and as Balla Boy said there was really only one candidate.


        Munsterforever won't like it though. Even our sports commentators are still under the imperialist cosh.

            Chabal was unreal


            took a knock to the hamstring and it looked bad so he may be out of the Ireland game
            To not give it everything, is to sacrifice the gift.

              Jerome Thion had a huge game as well, very talented player . I'm fairly
              worried, I didn't expect the french to be anywhere near as dominant up
              front.
