A Six Nations Round 2 press conference featuring Wales captain Dan Biggar was unexpectedly interrupted when a journalist’s laptop went rogue on a zoom call.

Biggar saw the funny side of it as the voice of Welsh Government economy minister Vaughan Gething interrupted his call with journalists yesterday.

ITV sports broadcaster and reporter Beth Fisher realized it was her errant laptop that was responsible for the bizarre interlude, and shut it off relatively quickly.

Fisher unselfishly shared the gaff on Twitter: “Another episode of “zoom’s gone wrong” Season 4. Pretty sure this is the first time Vaughan Gething has featured in a WRU Captain’s Run…#ohmygod”

It didn’t slow down Biggar, who was in sparky form, suggesting the pressure was in fact on Scotland ahead of this weekend’s Six Nations Round 2 showdown in Cardiff.

“We know they are coming in good form and confident, but there is a bit of pressure on them that they have been talked up and they have to try and win a championship, from what I am hearing,” Biggar said.

“Let’s see how they go in the tournament, and we will judge them at the end of it.

“They are coached well and have some X-factor players. It will be interesting to see how they play because we know they will want to come and throw the ball about and try to score tries that way.

“We are obviously looking for a reaction, so we are hoping to try and stifle that momentum and confidence they have built up.

“Their team looks strong on paper, and they have got individuals that can cause any team in international rugby problems.”
