Ireland v England is off to a flying start with both sides exchanging the lead at different points during the first half.
The entertainment level is high for those at the Aviva Stadium as well as those watching at but home but TV viewers have noticed one thing that is putting them off.
Any gap in commentary is filled with the sound of someone breathing heavily into a mic and most people are pointing the finger at referee Jerome Garces.
The game is being played at fairly high intensity so perhaps it’s understandable that the poor lad is a bit knackered.
Hey @VMSportIE if you could isolate the linesman’s mic and turn it down? Sounds like a sex pest breathing heavily on the commentary also.

All the referee microphone is picking up is Garces panting savagely.
The poor lad sounds completely wrecked. #IREvENG

Say what you want about the rugby lads but in what other sport would mic up the ref and let you hear him panting like he’s on a jollie to Amsterdam with the lads.#IREvENG
