Live women's rugby - on the BBC!

Great news that England's game at Twickenham against Scotland on 13th March will be shown live on BBC TV, via the Red Button.

Its actually quite strange that there has been any doubt about this (and the BBC still does not seem to have been an official announcement), being as the last time England played a Six Nations game at Twickenham (in 2007 against Italy) that was shown - so not showing the game would have been an odd decision.

On the other hand, there is a the risk is that this particular game could be quite embarrassing. Scotland have lost all of their last three games by record margins and will not - unless there is an astonishing improvement in performance - provide much opposition. England rattling up 70 points or more (which is highly probable - they scored 72 in 2009 against a stronger Scotland team) would not be a great advert for the game for new viewers, while anything over 90 or so (quite feasible) might almost risk making better coverage in the future less likely, as broadcasters will not be very keen on showing one-sided contests.

Abacuses at the ready...
