England prop Joe Marler has weighed in on a debate analysing the quality of punditry during the 2022 Six Nations across BBC and ITV.
The controversial article, written by up-and-coming rugby scribe Ben Nurse, suggests “The pundits are boring, the commentators are frazzled, and neither of them really know anything about rugby”.
Despite the article receiving a mixed reception, Marler has backed up the writer by tweeting: “Like staring at paint becoming unwettened…….”

BBC and ITV Six Nations pundits ranked by fan popularity
#16. Andy Nicol (Scotland) – BBC
Wales Online: “Can be as dank and drizzly as the weather north of the border. At times even the ITV adverts can offer a little bit more enjoyment than a piece of half-time analysis on the BBC from the 23-times capped former Dark Blue scrum-half.”
#15. Jonathan Davies (Wales) – BBC
#14. Sir Clive Woodward (England) – ITV
Wales Online: “You get the sense England’s 2003 World Cup-winning coach is more suited to the column inches of a newspaper that the TV airwaves. Especially on ITV where due to the commitment to constant commercial breaks there’s very little time to go into in-depth analysis which was Woodward’s forte when coaching the Red Rose.”
#13. Chris Paterson (Scotland) – BBC
