ITV Criticised For Greig Laidlaw Caption During Coverage Of England Vs Scotland

Greig Laidlaw was an analyst on ITV for the broadcaster's coverage of England vs Scotland at Twickenham on Saturday evening.

The Scotland captain was available to appear due to an ankle injury, sustained during his side's defeat to France earlier in the Six Nations, which ruled him out of action for the remainder of the tournament.

After England had completed their hammering of the Scots, coverage returned to the studio where the opinion of Clive Woodward was first sought followed by that of Laidlaw.

As the camera focused on the Scotland scrum-half, his picture was captioned, 'Lost each of five tests vs England, twice at Twickenham'.

The decision to focus on Laidlaw's poor record against England has come in for criticism.

Here's video of the moment in question.
