I think the commentators need to be pundits and entertainers with no RA or any other professional affiliations, they need to amp it up a bit.
That's why I liked Rodgers. Horwill was a bit light on - obviously hooper was never going to be vocal because he was negotiating a new contract - morgan is good but still has the oldy goldy wallabies gig.
Isn't Matt Rogers a player agent now? I know he's at least got a couple of NRL players and 7s players on the books. Probably some conflict there, but the NRL don't seem to mind I guess, they have Anasta as one of their main pundits and he manages some of their highest profile players.
Aside from that, I agree the commentary and analysis team shouldn't have any professional affiliation with any of the players or organisation. Amazing that out of all the retired players and media commentators we have the RUPA boss as a panel member, he's arguably going to be the least critical about anyone.
