What’s everyone’s view on the commentators, am I alone in thinking Trevor hunt is excellent, but as for Mick Morgan he talks absolute rubbish, ok mick wen u said I can speyk a few years ago it was funny, not to carry on saying it week In week out, get rid and put someone decent behind the microphone

I've watched the majority of the games on freesport. I take most of the stuff the comments made by them with a pinch of salt if I don't agree with them. The most important thing is that people tune in and enjoy the coverage. I support Oldham but I also follow saddleworth rangers,I love amateur rugby league. People need to get supporting their local amateur teams,it costs next to nothing to get in and the banters brilliant.

Just a tad hard on Mick Morgan, yes, he does labour his stock phrases but he also notices a lot of the bits of the game not obvious to all and very often spots fouls and playing errors way before Trevor Hunt or the ref!

Agreed,he does notice things pretty often. I guess you can't please everyone. We should all be grateful that these people participate in the publicizing of the amateur game. I can't imagine they get paid and if they do I can't imagine it'd be much. Mick Morgan or no Mick Morgan I'll be tuning in for as long as they keep broadcasting.

Would like to see Paul Wood given a go,Morgan is stuck in the past.

That would be a plus,he seems like a bloke you would like to listen to. It could be a case of when people are available.

I struggle to listen to Morgan peddling out the same old phrases week after week. I find it off putting and annoying while he tries to be a novelty act

Hunt is good and knowledgeable about the amateur game, I know they are different organisations but Sky could blood their young upcoming broadcasters on Freesports if they had an arrangement

Sorry but Mr Morgan doesn't help to promote  the game with some of his old comments,  his type of commentary is in the past, a lot of the younger generation will be asking who he is, think it would be better with a player who had turned pro from one of the teams being televised if possible,

Tbh he reminds me of my dad who was a Yorkie. Some of his sayings etc are quite reminiscent. That's probably why I don't mind it.

I am not a fan of Morgan. I would go for someone like Gareth Walker from the League Express or Rugby League.

When he has appeared on TV he has come across as a knowledgeable pundit. Also with a younger view on the game.

Correct , Paul wood would make a good co - commentator , anyone that can talk sense and st least do a bit of homework on the game, siddal went into a recent game at Thatto heath on the back of 3or 4 losses, Morgan tells the public they r on a rich vein of form with 3 wins on the trot ?

I really hope it's not Mick Morgan for the final. With us and West Hull having pretty much the same kit and even though I think we're pretty dead set on wearing our Yellow (with green chevrons) jersey, it still won't stop him getting mixed up all game with which side is which.

Makes a welcome change from having stats and other useless info being churned out as per Hemmings and company.

Got to agree with the majority of posters about this.

Few weeks ago I was watching a game when my next door neighbour came in to see me.  He sat next to me as the game was on and after a few minutes he said " Is your television picking up an old signal?' I asked him what he meant and he said 'That commentary, it's right from the 1960's.'

Everyone has their opinions,I'm just glad the channel are giving NCL rugby league airtime that it deserves. As regards commentary stuff,you can't please everyone,if you don't like the bloke,put him on mute. Rugby league is a great game commentary or not.
