Wales rugby icon Jonathan Davies sparks controversy after biased BBC commentary

France v Wales - Guinness Six Nations

Former Wales rugby hero Jonathan Davies fell victim to some heavy backlash following his 'biased' commentary on the Six Nations opener between France and Wales yesterday evening. 

His clear favouring of the Wales team is something that many believe should be left behind when picking up the microphone for his role off the pitch.

Many also believe that this is not the first time Davies has acted like this whilst commentating and that enough is enough as they call for him to be replaced. 

The night started on the wrong foot for Wales, who saw France breach their line of defence twice in the first half, leaving them on the receiving end of a 10-0 score line, thanks to tries from winger Yoann Huget and the big number 8 Louis Picamoles. 

The frustration grew for the Daffodils as they had a try from full back Liam Williams disallowed for a knock on. 

When Wales finally did get over the line for a try, Davies released his true inner fan and celebrated, igniting nationwide frustration in rugby fans across the nation, who saw his antics as a lack of professionalism and something that should cost him his commentary role with the BBC. 

The nationwide audience who tuned into the programme took to social media in rage to show their disgust for the BBC man's behaviour live on air, and made their views public on why Davies is making some matches unbearable to watch.  

One fan ranted: "So the secret to watching rugby on the BBC is to mute the sound and listen to 5Live on your DAB radio, no Jonathan Davies! #6nations2019.”

Another rugby fanatic said: "When oh when will the BBC retire Jonathan Davies?!?!," he continued by saying, "I’m sick to death of his whiney “Wales are brilliant”, everyone else are lucky commentary." 

Wales went on to win the game 19-24 in Paris with two tries from the explosive winger George North, who is looking like he is back to his best, and scrum-half Tamos Williams. 

All three conversions were successful and a penalty from Dan Biggar saw Wales get the ideal start to their 2019 Six Nations campaign.
