Like we covered the Arsenal v Man Utd match on Sky Sports 3D via live blogging of photos and tweets, we’re doing the same for the 3D Rugby from the BBC. How will it go? Let’s find out…
Photos via twitpic, from shalineesingh, in the Outside Broadcast truck…
timhobbs: First impressions of 3D rugby: effect impressive, sharpness very poor. Not sure how watching in a cinema will go. So far prefer HD at home
DeloreanGray: This 3d rugby stuff is very odd!
shalineesingh: 3D England v Wales 6nations rugby looking beautiful in the truck. Hope it's looking beeyootiful in cinemas too
Should you be watching the rugby in 3D while trying to work the transmission?!
DanielToole: Watching the rugby live in 3D (and twittering – how new media is that?)
5 Mins to kickoff…
davidhandford: Rugby in 3D is amazing, Fact!
ssethi: Watching Eng v Wales in 3D – first ever rugby match in the world. Very weird feeling but interesting experience.
Dontforceit: Wow. 3d rugby is the future. Well done o2, england and aislondon
This is definitely easier than the Football in 3D. Where is everyone?
O2 3D Rugby screenings have kicked off across the country. The game looks amazing in 3D
Hmmm, do I believe the sponsors? :p

rawedge: Watching England v Wales in 3d at the cinema it's quite impressive apart from the **** commentary
ssethi: TRY ENG! 3D TV really works really well when camera shot at ground level. #rugby #skyhd
Interesting, the footie tweets said much the same thing about the “behind the goal” and ground-level shots being the best.
davemusson: Rugby in 3d ok but major sound fail just now – white noise at cinema volume, not good!
leigh_moore: Good display by England. Welsh defence have been strong but Eng have stuck to their game..game looks great in 3D! #3Drugby
Inch666: @danvesma Could do with a little more atmos, but that try has helped! Looks great in 3D. Come on england. Swing low, sweet chariot
