Is Justin Hodges speaking English? He is basically incoherent, if his head busted open surely sawdust would spill out. What a vegetable. How the hell does he get a media gig let alone a spot in the commentary box?
Still easier to listen to than Blocker
At least Blocker is knowledgable about the intricacies of the game, Hodges is a dribbling mess. He must be mates with someone of influence at Fox surely, he is an embarrassment to RL with his dullard ramblings.
Like last week in the Warriors-Storm game when the Warriors were attacking the Storms line with a minute to go to force golden point and Blocker was saying how much the Storm would be loving it. The guy is deadset clueless.

Loving testing their abilities in goalline defence, loving that the Warriors weren't throwing much at them in attack....could've meant a few things TBH. When he speaks on panel shows about the nuts and bolts of RL he is very concise IMO. Was very skillful as a player for a big unit, I'd guess he'd know what he is talking about when it comes to playing the game.

He was talking up the Storms defence, saying how they would have been loving it. I don’t think that would that would have been the case.

Roosters vs Storm GF
Looks logical at the moment.
But early days.
It was only few weeks back that everyone was saying that the Dragons and the Bunnies were unbeatable.
Storm definitely looks the most stable and experienced to go back to back.
But lot can change by GF day in mid-September.

Maybe you could leave your obvious dislike of some people out of your comments.

It’s obvious you only commented because you like the guy (your prerogative). If I’d been talking about Bennett or some other personality whose universally disliked, I doubt you would have given my comment a second glance.

Agreed, Blocker is just not up to live commentary.
Its an opinion!

Blockers voice is a little irritating but he has a good read on the game. Sure he comes out with the captain obvious comments during the game at times - they all do!
If you want be a nark about any of the commentators on TV you could find enough ammunition on all of them.

Blocker can dissect a game well. Unfortunately he references rules from 7 years ago or that never existed
