The difference between nrl commentary and sl is insane. Get rid of the current line up and get in some of the radio commentary guys that have a bit of passion

It's chalk and cheese. NRL commentators make the game sound like it's being played at 150mph. We have to make do with Hemmings and O'Connor struggling to get the player's names right.

The whole Sky team needs a proper shake up

Fresh voices, fresh enthusiasm, more intelligence, more insight, more variety, more technical and tactical talk, less controversy, less labouring on certain incidents, less getting names wrong, less “the Warrington club” (just call us “Warrington”)... less replays of poop we’ve just seen or faces in the crowd and just show the game that’s going on that we’ve tuned in to see!

With Eddie, he looks for controversy so much he ruins his own commentary sometimes. There was a Cas try last year, it was an absolute beauty! But Eddie’s reaction was “ooooooaaaah I think he’s knocked on there!” He’s so obsessed with stoking controversy he ignored the class and skill of the set up of the try... the ref never even went upstairs to look for a knock-on, it wasn’t even close to being one.

He’s the main voice of the sport, he should be eulogising about good play and shouldn’t be having a bad word said about anyone like they’re all his own son. But he acts like a Union fan trying to make us look daft.

Also any time Warrington or Catalans score a try he seems crestfallen. I know as a Widnes fan from youth who loves St Helens since being a commentator and having his words quoted on the walls of Sts stadium and on t-shirts and in books sold in the Sts shop in the past... and through both he doesn’t like Wire but he should be more professional when talking about us. He has disappointment in his voice when we score, he’s full of snide digs and must say “is it their year?” every single time we’re on. I don’t mind it from fans of other clubs, it’s quite funny, I do mind it when the presenter/commentator uses it as a jibe, it’s unprofessional of the man. And I don’t know what his issue is with Catalans, he really doesn’t like them!


What a load of rubbish. When does that ever happen? You’re definitely making most of that up because you don’t like his commentary, I’ve never heard him sound crestfallen when Warrington or Catalan score and seen as he’s full of snide digs I’m sure you could give some examples? I don’t think he’s a good commentator either seen as he doesn’t know half the rules but that whole paragraph is nonsense.
