There was a TV programme on BBC1 late last night called the Rugby Codebreakers.It was about Welsh rugby players defecting to rugby league ,highlighting the prejudice that they encountered.If you failed to see it at 11.45 PM last night .it is available on iplayer.

I haven't seen this programme before.The date in the end credits was 2018 in roman numerals to confuse viewers.

I watched it back when it was first shown. It is an excellent programme and well worth a look on iPlayer for those that missed it. It shows RL in a very good light, which is interesting because the reporter is a Welsh RU journalist.

Carolyn is Welsh and a journalist, but writes on a lot more stuff than RU and sport.
