John ‘Foot in Mouth’ Inverdale Strikes again…

17.26 John Inverdale apologises to BBC viewers on the ‘Mainland’ for overuse of term historic

This is after a video package attempting to explain why England playing at Croker is so historic, complete with newspaper clippings and son’s of players who played in that match 87 years ago.

So John when will you be apologising to Irish viewers for the use of the term ‘Mainland’. All that being nice and making sure everyone knows why it’s a bit sensitive and you go put your foot in it again.

Anyway the anthems  passed off peacefully – although I’m sure I saw some tears on Irish players faces during Amhran na Bhfiann…

It’s quiet outside finally for a while – well the next 80 minutes plus halftime…
