    Can't agree, Dan. That's just a cop out imo. Most of the commentators who are held in low regard are criticised by fans of all sides, including for example Kearns and Martin, who are lambasted by fans of the Tahs and Reds respectively as they are by all other fans.

    Most of the commentators are just shit, and they are being called out for it on this site.

    Sorry BR, I can't agree. I think there are some not flash ones, but they can't all be bad, more some of us WANT them to commentate a different way. If they were just bad NOONE would listen to them, but some people like Kearnsie, Marto,TJ, Marshall just not always the same people. Much like refs mate I keep reading on here there are no good refs, I call that crap too!

    Does Tim Horan just verbalise every thought that comes into his head?

    He may have a future in Queensland politics like his father, as that is an essential trait all Queensland politician just say the first thing that comes into your head Joh, Katter, Hanson, Palmer etc

    It was amazingly bad from the very first moment where he lauded Rodney Iona for picking the ball up in an offside position.

    Clarkie is slipping, took him 69 min to reference Tamanivalu being Mataele's uncle & still hasn't mentioned Michael & Alan Ala'alatoa being brothers. MUST DO BETTER, GREG.

    Days gone by he would have found a break in play before Mataele had joined Tamanivalu from the bench on the field to mention that little relationship factoid. Although the real disappointment in my mind was his failure to capitalise on the double Fijian on Fijian matchup on the wing at the end.

    I'll add to this

    Grant Nisbett "Snapped up by."

    Also - I'm sure he's already been mentioned but Hoiles seems to be the new Kearns - watches games through Tahs lenses and agrees/disagrees with the refs calls depending on if they go for/against the Tahs.

    For NZ Steven Bates is rubbish - comes across as a total meathead.

    Nisbo gets my gruds. I mean Kearns, Marto and Hoiles are drooling Pavlovian experiments, but he is some next level sand in the jocks.

    my neanderthal pig dinosaur brain took about 5 minutes to adjust to the shock of a WOMAN calling the play by play in the Cantabs game but, in summary, she was excellent.

    I already like her more than TJ.

    Justin Marshall's man love for Folau must surely mean he is going to hell.

    You know who would make a great commentator? Will Genia.

    You know who would make a dogshit commentator? Isaia Toeava.


    today during Bumbreeze vs Swolves:

    GAHHH. i thought I was on the Genia spit and polish shift.

    Byron Kelleher would make a great commentator as he is surely fluent in a number of languages

    Isaia Toeava, pictured here about to fall over like a bumbling clot for the millionth time

    Justin Marshall "Synergy" Watch:

    Time: 17th minute

    Location: Fiji.

    Lesson learned: Any time, any place, you cannot stop synergy, you can only hope to contain it.

    Who is it in the Australian commentary box that cannot pronounce the name of players from the islands. Is it Clarke?

    "Tunk-gele".

    WTF? At least the Kwi bros get it right. Where's the respect?

    Da fuck? HT at WCS & no synergy let alone a boomfa or an oh yes boy indeed. It's almost like Marshy's been lobotomised. Again.
