I'll start, Miles Harrison is going to make the World Cup coverage generally intolerable.

Sam Warburton is a good lad.

The coverage today paid lip service to Scotland with no Scottish panelist but all the other home nations represented.


Any other grievances or begrudging praise here please.

Frankly McNicol should result in punishment of Scotland never being allowed another rugby pundit anywhere, ever.

Because they went for a panel of just retired ex players.. McGeechan will come in when Woodward is on. Bet you looking forward to that day..

So ageist also :thumbup:

You're right, no names big enough, except maybe big Gav. Balance would be nice, that's all.

That’s nothing to do with streaming it. It’s taking the commentators that long to figure out what’s going on.

We now have Wilkinson, POC and Dayglo helping to recreate the drop goal with Craig what’s his face in a Japanese Dojo set and while wearing suits. It’s a solid 9/10 on the cringe scale.

Of the four of them he looked the most ashamed of what was going on.

Not sure why they're recreating it rather than just talking it through, we can imagine the action.

Is it like "Phoenix from the Flames" ? Could be good if you get the casting right and have school-bags for posts, etc ...

Who was the commentator on the France Argentina match? He kept saying things like "he's giant a lump of greased muscle".. very homoerotic

He still looks like he combs his hair with vegetable oil. At least you could see the relief on POC’s face. He won’t be recreating any in game shite with Fitzy there.

A pic please. Just 2-3 hours ago on a separate thread, the Irish said they wouldn't shame themselves.

Can you imagine if one of the pundits had one of those days where you go to work in socks with a few holes in them?

Imagine using that terminology during the 1991 WC! People would think you were gone mad.

How about interpretation of the ruck law through the medium of kabuki.

It's fantastic. I genuinely didn't think that anybody could out-cringe Irish soccer commentators - but ITV is determined to give it a go.

Not really. All the matches are on Eir sports which is a subscription channel. The national broadcaster is only showing the Ireland games and a few of the other ones.

Yep. But it keeps stalling. Went back to other sources in the end...
