Live Twitter Tweets Of 3D Rugby England v Wales

The 6 Nations match between England and Wales at Twickenham on 6 February will be the first game in the tournament ever to be screened in 3D, to 40 cinemas across the UK (Odeon and Cineworld).

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…

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?)

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!
