    This is an interesting development. Hopefully it means we'll be seeing more of vossy on fox sports.

    Well I did hear Vossy was going to call Warriors away games, but I thought only for NZ Audiences.

    Good news for him calling this Saturday on Fox.

    Another ex 9 commentator on Fox Sports.

    You can have a whole team basically.

    Voss, Ikin, Belcher, Matty Johns.

    Nice to hear Vossy call the Titans/Warriors game tonight for Fox Sports.

    Vossy on the Fox Sports payrole full time according to Andrew Webster, can only be a good thing for Foxtel to help boost their numbers. People love Vossy and Vossy loves the people!

    More Vossy on Fox Sports can only be a good thing.

    Get him onto NRL 360 to host it. And re-format it so it is effectively a return of Sunday Roast (not that shadow of its former self that is still on the Sunday Footy Show). Keep Ikin and Kent on there if it's what it takes.

    Vossy just told me on twitter that he's only locked in to do the Souths v Warriors game on fox sports at this stage.



    Hopefully this is the start of a full time gig though.

    It's my understanding that Voss will call all Warrior games for the rest of the year regardless of where they are played.

    Something about having consistency in the commentators for the Warrior fans.

    As I said in the post above at the moment that's not right.


    The only one he's guaranteed to do is the souths game.

    Yep, that's what happens when you have no anti-syphoning laws.

    Costs about $70 per month, and Sky get us to pay for a lot of rubbish I don't watch.. but we do get EVERY NRL game live & uninterrupted by ads.

    It's funny with the Channel 9 games, as we stick with the action when Australia goes to adverts the commentator used to say a greeting to the international markets that's not screened in Australia. (not sure if they do that any more)

    Voss is doing an important job promoting the sport in NZ as well.

    When the NRL arrived we had Graham Hughes and Lowe. The product was light years ahead of Union here.

    Thereafter the NRL has lost ground with average commentators and below spoiling their product here.

    It would be nuts to move Voss from the NZ market....he is doing more good here than he would anywhere else.

    I hope he stays.

    Yeah, I'm aware that tv ratings for RL games in NZ was huge back in the days when it was on FTA over there. I remember reading a RL article from 1991 that someone posted on here saying that Origin games used to get 1 million viewers over there.

    And that's because Warriors have a bye and few home games for the next few weeks.

    He's calling every Warriors game, home and away.

    His work during the RLWC was brilliant. He did his homework on both the teams and the host cities and was a joy to listen to. Astounding he isn't a lead commentator for nine or fox. Whose wife did he sleep with?

    Vossy is calling the Roosters v Knights game this week for Fox. It'll be great if he is signed up full time by Fox, he's by far the best caller in the game imo.

    WHAT?! Are you saying we'll have to do without either Warren Smith or Brandy Alexander?

    Really enjoyed his commentary of the Sth's v NZ game in Perth. Such a joy to listen to compared to the ch9 numpties.
