    Buzz was saying the right stuff. What's worrying is the other three were dead set wrong and should know better! That has convinced me that their are plenty of dumb dudes within rugby league and these can easily create a damaging negative climate for the code. From this the News Ltd press go to town on it and negativilty implodes upon the code again!

    He sounded a little unsure early, but warmed to the task as the game went on.

    Has a great voice for a footy commentator. Very impressed.

    Matt Nable sounded like one of those commentators calling an A Grade semi final. Bit average tbh. He might improve but surely Fox will get other decent callers.

    Hodges needs to be given a more prominent role. His broken English and general grunting is an auditory delight.

    it was cringeworthy, all being loud and boisterous trying to be controversial I guess but agree, Block & Buzz are woeful

    what about Buzz on 360 talking about the Warriors ? - "that old hooker for Souths whose at the Warriors now" lol

    Yep. I had a mighty chuckle to myself over that. It’s a fair bet he watched about 45mins of league in the first round.

    Crash Craddock knows absolutely nothing about Rugby League. Surely there’s a RL journo based in Queensland who could do this gig?

    Its a pity the Fan show is only half hour cause its more interesting than a lot of stuff on the channel and its important too when they throw interesting stats as other commentators on the channel seem to get stuff wrong.

    They should slip a few bob in the direction of Graham Hughes.

    Nah mate. All money should be spent on unintelligible ex players and women who neither know or like the game.

    Provided they are easy on the eye, sounds a good strategy.

    It’s a sh*t show but every now & again they get something right. The Northies tribute was quite funny(or I’m inebriated).

    She offers absolutely nothing and is an AFL fan.

    Well done Matty Johns for getting your clueless 'mate' a gig.

    The professor was better than sliced bread when he first came onto the scene. With the passing of time, his ratio of hits and misses has gradually got wider.
    I watched him tonight....he is just plain sad now.
