I thought it was a pretty good start. Simon Lazenby had great rapport with his rugby pundits and I expect that to grow as the season progresses. I liked the analytics sections – they seemed to go into more detail on the technology that the Beeb does too. Ted K looked a bit uncomfortable in a suit, but luckily Brundle came through with the gold neck chain. Still mystified as to why Georgie feels the need to wear so much makeup when she’s naturally very pretty. But her interview with Jenson was good.
The proof of the pudding will be in the live coverage of course.
