The Bill Arthur/John Wells/Barrie McDermott combination (Hull KR v Widnes match) was such a refreshing change. Really good, professional and just right for both committed RL fans and casual viewers. I'd definitely make that the no 1 team when Hemmings retires. Infinitely better than him with O'Connor.

100% agree. The sooner we lose Hemmings, Cummings, Clarke and O'Connor the better. Its a total overload of rubbish!!

As said before, there are far too many voices in the box.all we have ever needed is a caller and a sumariser like the BBC did with french and Monie or whoever for years back in the day.
What you looking at?....Butt Head!!

Agree with this. Phil Clarke, Terry O'Connor and Stuart Cummings are terrible, sky need to get rid of them.

What the hell are you saying? Brian Carney is the most intelligent man involved in the telecast of northern hemisphere rugby league. He has a law degree from the University of Dublin. He talks a lot of sense.

Do you dislike Brian Carney because he played for Wigan, or because he is a personal friend of the irreverent professional comedian, television compere, and former Wigan player Matthew Johns, or because he is Irish?

I agree with you about William Arthur and Jonathan Wells. They are good. But Barrie McDermott is very hard to understand with his rough Yorkshire accent, and also because of that accent he is very hard to distinguish from the insufferable Terence O'Connor.
