I thought Tony Rea was excellent, enthusiastic and moved away from the usual phrases and expressions that the other continually trot out.

O'Connor is dreadful and was only hired as part of a redundant double act. I don't actually mind McDermott when he talks about the game and tries to give some insight into the mindset or gameplan of a forward. Half-backs and 9s run games and run teams so why Sky think that the best minds they will get to comment on the game is from 2 former prop forwards, a former loose-forward with an agenda to talk up certain players and an average winger (I think Wells has run his race now, hasn't offered anything new for a long time).

If you watch any NRL coverage you will find Johns, Fittler, Lewis, Sterling, Buderus, Kimmorley, Lockyer, Anasta, who offer much better insight into the game.

That useless waste of space powers saying missing goals doesn’t lose you matches? to Gaz O'Brien who missed all three conversions that would have errr won the match :WALL:






Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never fixes anything.

I can't comprehend how Angela Powers got the gig.
She's awful.

O'Connor's grunted out "you/you're" 92 times in the first 37 minutes. Just get rid!

Every kick inside the 40 is a 40-20 attempt according to Hemmings.
