Matt Russell is a good caller. I’m watching games on mute this year. I pretty much hate all of them.
Yeah he goes alright.

Still think Wazza Smith is the benchmark.
I agree
Warren Smith is a frustrated Yank-wannabe IMO. Terms like deeeefence and backfield need to be left alone. He references NFL, NBL or baseball every game without fail, apart from being an ex-Balmain supporter he has not many redeeming features as a commentator, would fit in nicely at the Daily Tele alongside Boozy Buzz.
Blocker is very knowledgable about RL, don't mind listening to him. He is insightful amongst the bulldust.
Badge has been given the flick this year, he was pretty good. Glad Brandy disappeared into the ether.
Justin Hodges needs to be eradicated-any ex player who still refers to our main medal as Daily M needs to be moved along...the bloke is a dullard.

I like Vossy, and Blocker for all his knockers is very astute when assessing the game.

Pretty ordinary. I too thought he was Ray Hadley on Mogadon. The lack of awareness for why a penalty was awarded and to which side was clunky. On the upside it was refreshing not to hear off the track Andrew Voss styled ramblings.
There are two kinds of people in the world - those that live in Balmain and those that wished they did.

Astute? I once heard him criticise Anasta for taking a shot at field goal 10 out, right in front with his side in front by 6 with 5 minutes left.

Blocker has the memory of a goldfish, remembers just the previous 10 seconds of a game, a team holds the ball for 1 good set of six and he thinks they are on top even thought they had been dominated for the previous 58 minutes.

Him and that other bloke whose name escapes me were the best IMO. Saturday Arvo's on the ABC were great with those 2 back in the day.

I think his ok and will get better. His genuine and passionate and not very biased so he deserves a good shot.
