Wells is a one trick pony, he just highlights a lead runner in a block shape and a defender making the wrong read and biting in, over and over again. There's very little analysis on the contact, defensive shape/structure or kicking and kick returns.


Absolutely spot on and what I was getting at. At first his addition to the Sky team was a breath of fresh air but now it’s just the same thing every game. Just spending the HT break with him pointing out which defender made the wrong read when it was usually bloody obvious at the time isn’t the great insight some make it out to be unless they’re not very good at spotting it themselves. His analysis is like RL for beginners. You tell he was a winger with his basic insight.

Tbh the breakdown he does at H/T has already been done in the replays right after the tries by those commentating, most of the time. He doesn't really add that much more to what they've already said.

Mostly found Australians given exposure with either BBC or Sky over the last 30 years have been decent. Remember Monie, Sims, Rae, Millward etc... down the years and they all came across well. Better than the Baz and tez rubbish anyway.

Indeed and Andrew Voss on Premier was a true breath of fresh air compared with our lot.

On of the real problems with Sky is that it's the same team every game 3 times a week. It's just too much and even if they were great, they soon become stale and when they're not so good, it's just awful.

My issue with it is the cacophony of voices, all saying not very much - they talk over each other, go off at tangents, drown out referees addressing players and insist on making a controversy out of every call, often proven to be completely wrong on replay; and the excruciatingly awful "banter" is arse-clenchingly embarrassing.

I can't understand why they don't freshen it up, trim down the size and scale of the numbers involved, and get some insightful voices actually calling the game, but also knowing when to shut up; it would be cheaper, as well as better.
