French mis­con­nec­tion


ALL or­gan­i­sa­tions are the same and it is no sur­prise that there are al­ways gripes com­ing from staff at the BBC about the stars get­ting pref­er­en­tial treat­ment on trips away.

How­ever, their rugby league cov­er­age has been ex­tremely egal­i­tar­ian with most of those cov­er­ing the World Cup in Aus­tralia be­ing given al­most iden­ti­cal apart­ments at a base in Syd­ney.

That, of course, can bring its own prob­lems as top TV com­men­ta­tor Ray French ap­pears to have dis­cov­ered. He re­turned to his quar­ters af­ter a long and tir­ing stint be­hind the mi­cro­phone.

Some­thing seemed wrong as he crashed out on his bed and an hour later he awoke with the re­al­i­sa­tion of what it was...some­one had moved his slip­pers.

Fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­vealed there was a rail of women’s clothes in the wardrobe where his own at­tire should have been.

Then he twigged it – he had some­how man­aged to get into the wrong room!
