The commentary from the Tik Tok Women’s Six Nations has been universally praised as Sara Orchard and Brian Moore teamed up for the clash between Scotland and England.
The former England hooker stepped down from his Men’s Six Nations role with the BBC, the pundit has confirmed on Twitter.
“My England career began with a Calcutta Cup, and my BBC co-comms career on the Men’s 6 Nations will end on Saturday with another,” wrote the 60-year-old firebrand, who’s become one of the platform’s most-followed rugby union accounts.
“Thank you to all at BBC Sport, especially my mate, Eddie Butler. It’s been a privilege to work on some unforgettable sporting occasions.”
However, he will now be switching his attention to the women’s game.
Moore said: “I’m pleased to say I will be working on the Women’s 6 Nations coverage. My commitment to women’s rugby goes back as far as 1991, helping the England forwards.
“Women’s rugby is the key to sustaining all rugby long term, and I’m proud to still be involved.”
Fans certainly seem to be enjoying his return alongside Orchard, who is a qualified rugby coach and referee.

Carter’s personal favourite moment from his career comes from New Zealand’s 2015 Rugby World Cup final triumph against Australia at Twickenham however, as he slotted a drop goal from 40 metres out to stem the tide of a Wallabies comeback.
“All such special memories but hard to go past the RWC final drop goal,” Carter tweeted, in response to a Rugby World Cup post asking fans what their favourite moment from the All Blacks fly-half was.
He added: “Twickenham, the home of rugby, was certainly bouncing that night.
