With only a few days to go before Wales begin their Rugby World Cup 2011 campaign against South Africa, ITV Wales has unveiled its studio set for the competition.
Two giant panels installed in Studio 2 at ITV Wales’ HQ in Cardiff reflect ITV’s opening sequence for the 2011 tournament – inspired by the inks used in Maori Ta moko (tattoo) – produced by Jump Design.
They will be the backdrop for anchor presenter Frances Donovan and rugby pundits Mike Hall, Mark Jones and Michael Owen.
The former Welsh internationals will be part of ITV Wales’ expert team who will be presenting live coverage of all of Wales’ Pool D games for viewers in Wales.
In New Zealand, commentary will be provided by Bob Symonds, one of the best known voices in Welsh sport, and former Wales scrum half Andy Moore.
Coverage begins on 9.10am on Sunday ITV1 Wales.
The line-up is part of ITV’s extensive coverage of Rugby World Cup 2011. All of the Home Nations’ matches will be broadcast on ITV1 and ITV1 HD.
Coverage begins on 09 September with live coverage of the Opening Ceremony followed by the first match, New Zealand v Tonga.
