    Default vitual crowd noise

    I quite liked the virtual crowd noise at Twickenham.

    It even had a crowd booing when the ref disallowed Underhill's touchdown.

    The operator's panel would be interesting to see.
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    It's not actually played in the stadium is it? Just added to TV?

    Why? What is the point? Unless the rugby is not exciting on its own.

    I didn't even turn the programme on! But it is not the point is it. Football did the same thing and was heavily critisized for it. It just feel the rugby is what should sell rugby not the added "glam". Of course we might find that many people don't actually like the game.

    i quite like it, having eery silence is - well - eery . I think they have done it quite well, it's basically background not trying to fool you that a crowd is there
