Dave Woods also falls badly into the stereotypical chat: 'this'll be great for bringing the game to the masses in the south', worrying about attendances, patronising the viewing public etc etc. I understand why they do it, but it would be so refreshing if they commentated with the assumption that everyone knows what's going on and doesn't need everything constantly explained. I've listened to him on the radio numerous times in the past, and he constantly witters about ###### while the action is going on. Next thing you know it's the fifth tackle, and he's not described anything that's happened since the previous restart.
During the England v Australia commentary on Sunday, Andrew Henderson was summarising, and really showed him up with his knowledge and enthusiasm for the game - as we discovered with thingy on Premier Sports during RLWC 2013, the Aussies call a game a million times better, and the commentary on the third Ashes test in 1988 is still more memorable than almost any commentary I've heard since.
