- Broadcaster received vitriol after Wales v England in Six Nations
- ‘Will I change? No. I’m old enough to handle it’
The broadcaster Sonja McLaughlan says the abuse she faced on social media for asking tough questions after England’s Six Nations defeat against Wales in February was made more severe because she is a woman. But she has vowed not to soften her pitchside interviews when she returns to covering Eddie Jones’s side next month.
McLaughlan was left in tears by the vitriolic reaction she received after asking the England captain, Owen Farrell, about his side’s ill-discipline and whether they should have been more switched on before a Josh Adams try during the 40-24 loss.
