Really please with Premier's coverage. They captured the game at Warrington really well yesterday. The World Cup is a real celebration of our game and Voss and the team brought this out yesterday. You sense he is having a great time, with his "pork roll and game of darts in the Rodney" before kick-off and Wire being a "real footy ground". His enjoyment of the tournament is coming across in his commentary.

Premier have really captured the glitz and glamour of the World Cup, with the opening ceremony and all that went on in Cardiff, and then the great tradition of the game with the Warrington match.

Haven't watched the PNG game on catch-up yet, but I expect Ian Ramsdale did a decent enough job of that too.

I thought IR was quite good. First time I've heard him after seeing a few on here say he's not very good. Jon Wilkin didn't half like to ramble on though!

It'd be great if prem sports could nab a few super league games off sky like what BT did with the football, more games, better coverage, more exposure.....

Like having Vossy there, he makes a hell of a difference. My only complaint so far was i set the PNG game to record and it stopped recording just as Mead attempted the penalty in the 78th minute!.. and stopped for no apparent reason.  extremely annoying.

Think it must of over ran if you recorded the second game it has the finish of this one on it.

It is I taped them both and the NZ game has the finish of the PNG game on it from about where Aiton does the high tackle.

I enjoy Jonathan Davies, more in the studio than commenting though.   against the grain I know, but there you are.... all down to composure I guess.

 

This is the reason that the negative voting system should be restored.

 

I signed up yesterday AM, as I was in Cardiff on Saturday I didn't see the point.  I really enjoyed the commentary, it was fair, and unobtrusive: just as it should be.  The picture isn't amazing, it could do with being in HD but no matter.

 

The Premier player is a worry.  I've registered but not had a confirmation email as yet, and I've written to them this AM to say that I need it as I'm abroad and want to watch the games.  Slightly worried about what people are putting about it in terms of it being jumpy, and although I don't use Chrome I do use Safari which isn't the standard Explorer browser.

 

One thing that I did notice when trying to look at the odds on the Kiwi/Samoa game last night was that the scores on SkyBet were some minutes ahead of the actual play which is disappointing.

I concur with a few of the others about jumps in the media player. And the satellite signal is one of those "weaker" ones that pixellates (though that could have been the high winds and rain last night).

 

But... Andrew Voss is brilliant. His commentary of the magnificent NZ-Samoa match was superb.

The only tiny thing I can criticise is that I wish there was 30 mins build up instead of just 15, and that it stayed on a bit longer afterwards too. Other than that it's been brilliant!

Watched the NZ v Samoa game on iPad from Spain and it was spot on. Very impressed with commentary team which further enhanced a brilliant spectacle of a game

wish we could get Vos and co on sky instead of the stat orientated commentaters they have , at least Vos commentates on game without throwing up meaningless traffic lights and how the 2 teams have compared over the last 30 years and talking utter drivel

I'm missing Phil Clarke trying to send me to sleep at half time. I love all those pretty colours he talks about.

I intended paying on the gate at Warrington but when it was announced as sold out I bought Prem Sports.
Superb commentary from both Voss and Nobby. Thought Voss brought Noble in very well and Voss's knowledge of the players almost all from the NRL was a massive plus for the game on TV.
Great game and great television.
Can't wait for the next fixture.

I had to pause recording NZ v Samoa and then missed the last few seconds of the game as the recording ended, and also the post game round-up.

The second half was fantastic, well doen to the Warrington crowd and Voss's commentary was spot-on. He hogs the mic more than Woods, but I think thats the way it should be.

I could have watched it for another 2 hours.

Take my hat off to Premier Sports for bringing Andrew Voss on board, an absolute masterstroke.  His match commentary and humorous one liners are brilliant.  Hope he pops in the Turf for a beer before the Wales v USA game on Sunday!

Those of us impressed by the Premier Sports coverage could always leave some feedback for them on their Facebook page
