6 Nations ad banned on BBC in England

Originally made for the BBC to promote the 6 Nations in 2012, this ad was pulled it after complaints it was anti-English.

It was re-edited to give ‘more balance’ but ended up in the BBC archives never to be shown on TV again.

I love it and think the BBC should have aired it anyway!  Rugby fans love this kind of stuff.

    So the ‘Anyone but England’ sign at Uraguay v England in the RWC2003 must have pissed them off….
