‘Language my friend, we’re a family show’ – Munster fan swears on live television

Jack O'Toole

As part of their effort to show that they are broadcasters of the people, Sky Sports conducted their post-match show from the Munster-Castres game with hordes of Munster fans surrounding them.

Not only did the fans get the opportunity to listen to analysis from former Ireland international Alan Quinlan and England World Cup winner Will Greenwood, but they also had the chance to contribute to the discussion and offer their views on Munster’s resounding 48-3 win.

Quinlan and Greenwood are seasoned media professionals and have spent their entire playing careers, and more so their post-playing careers, fielding questions from presenters.

Munster fans haven’t, and it showed when one supporter was asked about Munster’s patience in the second-half as Johan van Graan’s side ran in 35 points unanswered.

His response made for television gold.

“It was always going to come. 100% professional every fucking minute of the game.”

Sky Sports presenter Alex Payne pulled the microphone away in record time and moved to wrap up the segment as quick as he could.

If you want to show that you stand alongside the average person, be prepared for an average response.
