Six Nations Rugby 2014, BBC One, 2 February 2014

BBC Sport


We received complaints from viewers who were unhappy with a comment made by John Inverdale during the Ireland v Scotland match.  Some viewers felt his reference to England, rather than Great Britain was inaccurate and biased.

The BBC’s response

John made an unintentional slip despite clearly knowing that it is Great Britain and not England that competes in the Davis Cup.  He apologised for his mistake later in the programme once he had realised his error.
