"Sydney - The majority of England supporters will never see Jonny Wilkinson's World Cup winning drop goal on television again after the International Rugby Board whacked an enormous price on the event.
The IRB is charging £6 500 (about R71 000) a minute for footage of the final, prompting the BBC to ban showing England's greatest sporting moment in 37 years.
Most other British television stations will refuse to pay the exorbitant fee which applies to any footage under 60 seconds.
The BBC has only showed still images of the final in reporting the triumphant return of the England players to London earlier this week. Only ITV, which paid £10 million for the rights to the World Cup, has been able to show scenes from the final once the tournament finished.
Access to footage for TV news expired 24 hours after the final, with all video now the property of the IRB.
Video footage of games from every World Cup, apart from the 1987 tournament, are owned by the IRB.
"It's quite outrageous that the IRB should try to make capital out of Jonny's moment of glory. Just when everyone is getting excited about rugby, they go and ruin it," a BBC insider told British newspaper the Daily Star.
"The daft thing is that in the long term the IRB will lose out.""
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
