Surely they can find a young(ish), enthusiastic & professional presenter from somewhere. It doesn’t necessarily have to be an ex-player either nor someone who is a RL know it all. A move away from creating contention where there is none & more analysis of the skill on show is a must. This current bunch do absolutely zero in engaging new & old fans.

William Arthur is one of the better game callers in British rugby league. He is not as good as the sublime David Woods at the prestigious BBC, but I actually rate William as good a caller if not better than Edward Hemmings.


Was that post more about expanding peoples names and using cheesy Aussie terms rather than meaning anything meaningful?

My heart missed a beat on Thursday when I noticed they had lispy JJB on. I hope he isn't being groomed to be a future presenter on sky. He would be awful in an already awful team.

Now is the time to vote your anger and disgust with incompetence and stupidity in rugby league broadcasting.

Who is the worst commentator on Sky: Phillip Clark, Terence O'Connor, Barrie McDermott, Stuart Cummings, or Angela Powers?


It’s Terry not Terence I’m led to believe - Terry is commonly and correctly used as a stand alone name. Maybe it confuses you (what doesnt) that Barrie sometimes calls him Terence as a joke.

Just because he was Christened Terence it doesn’t make it his name. He goes by the name Terry, it’s his right to choose.

Thankfully. Otherwise she might only be halfway through it now.

Not a single one of those options is a commentator.

The two commentators on the Sky team are Eddie Hemings and Bill Arthur.

Barrie and Terry for me. It's annoying to hear them shout "SHOT" whenever a defender puts in a good tackle.

You have a right to your opinion. I don't challenge that. But I have a right to mine. If Terence O'Connor were to be knighted, for example (say for services to rugby union), he would be knighted as Sir Terence, not Sir Terry. Sir Terry would be just silly. I believe in giving him the minimum respect he deserves.
