Sophie Goldschmidt, RFU Chief Commercial Officer said: “We are delighted that the two upcoming England Tests will be broadcast live on the BBC giving all England Rugby fans the opportunity to support the team during the prime time TV coverage this June. Stuart Lancaster has taken a young squad to South America and exciting talent will be on show as England aim for their first series win in Argentina.”

  1. Ridiculous that they aren’t going to show the game against the CONSUR select side anywhere though. They go to the trouble of sorting a game, and then don’t bother to give the fans a means to see it!

  2. Finally, now lets see the Premiership please. Or at least more than audio clips on the news coverage.

  3. Good news as I was thinking after adding Sky to watch the Lions tour, I was going to miss this thinking ESPN were going to show them. BBC have finally got their wallets out and paid for some decent rugby (6 Nations aside). About time really.

  4. Brilliant news I thought I would be trawling through all the channels and teletext to try and find the result. About time more was shown on terrestial Television.
