Stevo played and coached at the highest level. Make of that what you will.


He did- in the 1970s! Gould has been involved at NSW as well as NRL Clubs in the past 10 years. He also is involved at Penrith right now though not in a coaching role as such. Massive difference for me. I also feel Stevo is set up as somebody to be loud and bold instead of trying to just call the game.

My dead gran's forgotten more about rugby league than Eddie & Stevo know combined. As broadcasters, they're a total joke.

Few players on twitter getting into Eddie and Stevo about the poor commentary in the Salford v HKR game

It's not even commentary any more, Eddie has become beyond embarrassing

It's interesting that Andrew Voss hasn't yet got a regular commentary job for the NRL this year. He did the Warriors v Broncos pre-season game on Saturday for Sky NZ but his Twitter feed shows that he doesn't know whether he'll be commentating every week.

He irritates some people but I still think he's probably the best of the Aussie commentators.

I know Eddie and Stevo are part of Sky's RL heritage but I don't think it would do the sport any harm to have a different voice now and then. If they only covered one of the two Sky games a week, people might find them less annoying.

I think that's a really good point and hadn't considered it. Why not mix it up a bit to keep it fresh? After this weekend's games I've had a bellyfull of Dumb and Dumber. Let's have a different perspective and not the usual 'utilise the dummy runner' mantra.... But it doesn't need to be a wholesale clear out.

They need fresh meat. Who commentates on the Championship games for premier sports? .

E & S have started to believe they are Eric & Ernie, they think they are a good comedy act, they aren't and they need to be reminded that they are sports commentators and if they want to do comedy go to Dave for a contract.

my suggestion get rid of them both and employ claire balding with brian carney and phil clarke, claire could make tiddlywinks sound good and carney has an infectious ehthusiasm coupled with phil clarkes knowledge and hey presto a good set up................

Get that fella who got all giddy at Team GB in the Olympic cycling! I liked his enthusiasm.

If you use "should of", "would of" or "could of", you are a moron.

The amount of times he asks the others what the rules are,is quite extradinary.How can you possibly be a professional commentator,without knowing the current rules - truely unbelievable.
