In Topic: Update on Magic?

Yesterday, 03:20 PM

according to runningrugby.com this Magic weekend is set to be the best attended to date, over 60,000 sold and 64k being the highest attendance yet. 20% of those from NE post codes.

 

Blake Solly also quoted as saying he's expecting around 40,000 to pass through the gates on Saturday.


In Topic: Sky Commentary Team

Tulsen Tollet still does some TV work, always thought he was pretty good when SKY used to show the NRL.

 

 

I do like how the Channel 9 coverage in the NRL always seems to enlist the services of former players to interview the players at half time etc, and give opinion/comment as the game is played. Players like Jon Wilkin and Sam Tomkins would be good at this.

I'd keep Phil Clarke but get rid of Bill Arthur also. Bring in Dave Woods as first choice commentator. The rest i agree with. Personally i'd be looking at some of the many graduates coming out of university having studied media and TV production, get some fresh and original thinking behind the programmes.

As has been said you educate people, which is exactly what you'd have to do, but to a far greater degree if you change the name if the sport to something completely alien and fabricated.

The only people who make comparisons are generally from within rugby union or rugby league.

And the reasons behind people not knowing so much about the sport can be attributed largely to decisions made by people involved in the game (aside from the media bias over the years).
