For me, the coverage would be better if BBC Red Button could show the evening highlights – after all these highlights feature the conclusion to the games that are shown in their hour at 7pm!  So, in a last minute attempt to try and persuade Red Button to change their mind, leave your comments here on this post and I will pass on to the team on Monday!  You never know, the highlights might get added at the last minute!
