Stuart Barnes has always been one of those characters that divides opinion somewhat with his at times questionable commentary and opinionated columns.
And it’s probably fair to say he didn’t have his greatest day in the commentary box, suggesting Stuart Hogg should rake a long range penalty when the fullback was already off the pitch.
But Alun Wyn Jones wife was one of many other twitter users who had a go at the commentator, following on from his insistence on calling Greig Laidlaw, ‘Gregor’ seven days ago.

Really disappointed with Stuart Barnes @SkySportsRugby commentary.
Three games into the tour and he hasn’t risen above mediocrity
