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.
