A unlikely hero has emerged from the Calcutta cup this weekend – an English fan who spoke his find and produced an unforgettable interview.
In an interview carried out by Rugby Pass after England’s loss to Scotland, a supporter made his opinions clear on the lack of atmosphere at Twickenham.
Hijacking a question for another fan, the gentleman explained how England were ‘Outsung at home’ and argued that was more embarrassing than the loss.
He went on to say that it has ‘Been the same for 10 years’ and suggested that fans who openly shout and sing are actually criticised by fellow supporters.

Scotland legend Jim Hamilton called the exchange ‘One of the funniest post match interviews ever’.
Humorous or not, the interview does actually raise some important points. Twickenham has always been a great game day experience but never quite to the level of Murrayfield or The Principality.
Some on social media are in agreement with the man from the video and argue that rugby fans can be their own worst enemy and criticise the loud sections of supporters.
However, on the flip side, some have indicated that the problem actually starts with the RFU itself and the price of tickets – suggesting that ticket prices immediately alienated a large section of true rugby fans and is only accessible to a more cooperate audience, therefore creating a more relaxed atmosphere.
Either way, that interview is truly one of a kind.
