TV viewers spotted something strange when the Newcastle Falcons line up was announced before the match with the London Wasps in the Aviva Premiership on Friday night.
Someone at BT Sports appeared to be a little bit drunk as they got rugby confused with football, and the Newcastle Falcons with Arsenal.
Of course, Arsenal take on Newcastle in the Premier League on Sunday.
Comically confused, the Newcastle Falcons line up had an amazing array of talent on it’s bench as Arsenal’s Koscielny, Arteta, Podolski and Oxalde Chamerblain were all named on the Newcastle bench.
Adding further confusion to an already stupid line up was the inclusion on Crystal Palace forward, and ex-Arsenal flop, Marouane Chamakh on the subs bench also.
And one final mistake: the Newcastle Falcons team wasn’t even correct either as the line up was some sort of team of the team in the Aviva Premiership!
A screengrab of the completely screwed up Newcastle Falcons line up can be seen below.
