give him a few weeks. He'll say something against your team and you'll turn in him.

 

He should really try something different.  I wonder if he's thought about a chip over the top.

In the NZ v Samoa game I loved when Mose Masoe took a big hit up and Vossy came out with "Big Mose Masoe there. You wouldn't want to pick up his pastry bill!"

Same here, inexplicably she has no interest in RL but even she was chuckling at something he said last week!

His humour is infectious and there is a warmth and enjoyment to his commentary that makes it easy to listen to.

"Lets call him Wellington Albert the fourth......"

I love this thread by the way, Ive missed some of these comments but they are all hilarious. As others have pointed out, he gets them in without detracting from the game and always focuses on the positive. He brings a genuine enthusiasm to the game, whether its a tight game or a 50 point blow out, that draws you in and you cant stop watching.

How many curries has he had this week?  I think we should be told, oh hang on we have.

Might not be quite right, but in the Tonga game yesterday, (one of) their big lads got a nose bleed and they shoved two wads of wrapping up his nose

Makes me glad I don't have to share a commentary booth with him put it that way.  :bad:

in the NZ v samoa game "when masoe and kasiano come together they are the size of a small country"
"Why is Napoleon crying ?" said one sailor to the other, "poor ###### thinks he's being exiled to st helens" came the reply.

Without wanting to create a big love-in, he has been brilliant so far. He even made Halifax sound like a great place to be.

If he can do that, then he could make London v Salford on a Monday night sound better than a Polish sausage from the 3 Pigeons.

Whilst I have really liked him, I made the similar point on the Brian Noble thread - why do Rugby League commentators have to try and be funny?

 

Apart from Ray French, who is a terrible commentator, we have always had commentators who play it for laughs.

 

Why can't we get sensible commentators with intellectual analysis.

 

Voss has been perfect for the World Cup - it is like he is on tour and is loving it and his enthusiasm and passion is clearly there, I'm not sure whether this would work twice a week in the regular season.

Was that the scrum penalty? Vossy then went on to say it was like 1972 all over again and how brilliant it was!

No one can analyse Silverwood's decisions intellectually. As for Ganson, you'd have been better off with someone with a background in improv theatre.

I think it was about Mose Masoe, he said something like "he's only made 11 tackles during the match, but every one's registered on the Richter Scale"
