Just watched highlights of last nights game. This guy has to be the worst play by play commentator in at least 20 years. There was that kiwi commentator who called Warriors games for a while who was so bad Fox Sports started using their own commentators. But apart from him, no one else comes close.

I like him - he’s understated.

Prefer his relaxed approach any day over Voss’s self indulgent trash

His commentary is more suited for horses and greyhounds
Without being rude, he is horrible at it

you need the right voice, Ray Warren and Warren Smith have the best for Rugby League in my opinion

Geebus. Watch out when you are being rude.

He is not a good commentator but in his defence it is his first year at it i think.Hopefully he will improve

I don't mind him I think he will improve a fair bit next season after a good preseason with no injuries.

Things I would like him to work on
  • Learning players names
  • Not saying the same things when someone scores etc like "HES IN I THINK HES GOT IT DOWN"

I like Vossy. His call of this try was one of the greatest pieces of commentary of all time

I'm not sure who the caller was , but the try Tuqiri scored against the Cowboys was my favourite commentary

He comes Marshall , he comes Thurston , AND HERE COMES TUQIRI

Think I should expand:
I like and admire Vossy’s passion and his ability to mix with ex champions and survive. But I struggle with his theatrics. He takes the smallest, quirkiest moment and hammers it to death. Drives me nuts! But that’s just me
