Not a single one of those options is a commentator.

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


Edward Hemmings and William Arthur are, like Raymond Warren in Australia, game callers, not commentators.

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.

Why would be get any accolade for services to rugby union?

Ok, so the vote option doesn't seem to be working 'again' & in the absence of Eddie 'Just for men' Hemmings I go for Cummings, how this weapon can get repeat years on Sky despite only ever blindly defending the indefensible decisions of referee's is just bizarre !

Special mention to Angela Powers for last night's naming of Leeds Head Coach as Trent bloody Barrett !

Wrong as ever. There are very few occasions that you are required by law to use your legal name, a name you can in fact change any time you wish.

A knighthood in not one, the queen knights Elton John as sir Elton which is his stage name and one he chooses to use daily. I can find no evidence that he’s changed his name legally. I know for certain that Sir Michael Cain is still legally called Michael Mickle something because he says so in his autobiography.

So HRH would have no issue knighting Sir Terry.

True enough, I was watching some old sky games tother day and his commentary was a lot better than what we have now. Early 2000s, mind, not stuff towards the end of his career.
"The problem when you play Leeds is that they are a huge 'confidence' side. If you get on top of them, they will cower and go away, but when they get in front their chests puff out and they start whooping as they make tackles. " (Jon Wilkin)

“Leeds just wander around looking like they’re doing nothing” (Jon Wilkin)

"Jon Wilkin's tight pants and coffee shop have not helped him to see the bigger picture or allowed him to get a firm grip on reality." (leeds owl)
