Rugby World Cup UK TV guide (Without the feckin’ Ads)

As kick off to RWC2011 draws ever closer the prospect of watching every game becomes ever more daunting. I kept looking at the Rugby World Cup UK TV times table  I had drawn up and thinking the late nights/early mornings may well  be an end to me. I started to doubt whether Canada Vs Japan was really worth staying/getting up until/at 4.30 of a Tuesday morning. Shame on me.

I’d also started to wonder about ITV , about Craig Doyle, Steve Rider and whether a grown man should be looking forward to spending the majority of the next 6 weeks in the company of one or the other or both of these. I’m not, truth be told. I then thought about the ads, the feckin ads, the feckin ads that mean that half time breaks are now 12 minutes long . The ads That ITV will obviously be cramming in before the start of matches, the ads that can be avoided….

Cue new TV schedule, Now with Kick Off times and less Ads!!!
