BBC rescued in Rome

Once a rugby player always a rugby player. That is so true for player Jonathan Davies who was forced into an emergency math commentary duty as his country beat Italy 26-9 in the Six nations in Rome. Every since then, Davies says that people he was so nervous for the game being that he hadn’t played in a while and wouldn’t be playing his regular position.

As the BBC commented on a rugby match one of the commentators began to feel ill. Luckily there was an ex- Wales player who was able to fill in for him. Jonathan Davies was very nervous as he took the microphone, who said, "you could probably hear it in my voice."


Former Wales fly-half Jonathan Davies was forced into emergency match commentary duty as his country beat Italy 26-9 in the Six Nations in Rome.

BBC Wales' Scrum V regular Davies began the match as the BBC's analysis expert.

But commentator Andrew Cotter fell ill and another ex-Wales star, Shane Williams, took over as second-voice.

Huw Llewelyn Davies commentated in Welsh for S4C for the opening period then switched seats to join the BBC One coverage team as Cotter's replacement.
