BBC Try, Try And Try Again

Questions are being asked about BBC Scotland’s knowledge of anything other than football after an own goal on their rugby coverage.

According to a story published on their website, regarding the Scotland squad for the forthcoming Autumn Internationals, “Edinburgh captain (Mike) Blair and Glasgow Warriors skipper (Chris) Cusiter will vie for the sole scrum-half position and the right to wear the armband.”

Of course, followers of rugby will know that there is no such thing as a captain wearing an armband in the sport. Lest we cause any further confusion at Pacific Quay, there is also no such occurence as an own goal in rugby.
