Network TV Week 48

BBC TWO Sunday 23 November 2008
Rugby Union – England V South Africa
Sunday 23 November
3.10-4.10pm BBC TWO


Dan Walker presents rugby union highlights of England's clash with South Africa at Twickenham, in a repeat of last year's World Cup final.


The Springboks were 15-6 winners in Paris, thereby relieving England of their title as world champions – although both teams are now under new management. Jonny Wilkinson kicked all England's points that day but was missing with injury from the XV who took on the tourists yesterday. Such had been England's decline since their 2003 triumph that they were unexpected finalists in France but with the era of Martin Johnson now under way, England fans will be hoping that the glory days are set to return.



Match Of The Day 2
Sunday 23 November
10.00-10.50pm BBC TWO


Adrian Chiles presents highlights of today's two Barclays Premier League fixtures.


Tottenham met Blackburn at White Hart Lane in the day's lunchtime kick-off. Seven of the last eight games between the two teams ended in a draw, with three of the last four finishing 1-1. The only game that didn't was this corresponding fixture last season, when Christopher Samba's injury-time winner condemned Spurs to a 2-1 defeat.


The day's other game saw West Ham travel to Sunderland, having lost out to a last-minute Andy Reid goal at the Stadium of Light last season. It gave the Black Cats three points that proved vital in their fight to avoid relegation.


There is also a chance to catch up with the goals and talking points from yesterday's games, and a look at the funnier side of football in 2Good 2Bad.
