Maybe they need to mix it up and do the Scottish thing of referring to size - e.g. a great breakaway try by Wee Regan Grace after a potential foul on Big Israel Folau.

They need to do something a bit different.

A chip over the top, maybe?

If it’s not age, it’s size they’re obsessed about, particularly O’Connor. 

It’s always big Alex Walmsley or big Sam Kasiano. And if they’re not big, you’ll hear the phrase ‘he’s not the biggest but........’ 

It says a lot about the standard of commentary that they have the inability to talk about the finer skilful elements of the game

Big and Young, occasionally an "athletic" or "powerful" will slip in there too...

And we all thought Stevo bingo was bad, when it was actually very erudite.

O'Connor's most aggravating for me and most often said was Frank Paul the Wrecking Ball re F. P. Nu'uausala, he said it everytime he took a pass, made a tackle, was substituted both on and off the field, and even once when he was tying his boot laces, I kid you not.

Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.

After Maloney was sin-binned Barry Mac referred to Catalans having to pay with ten men.

If it means I don't have to listen to "Old O'Connor" and "Old Mcdermott"'s inane babbling then I'm ok with that 🙂

they really annoy my own old un - that is the not so young missus... their dribble is ceaseless,  never ending and I wish some youngster would put an old sock in their boring gobs...

Yes indeed . The Englishman is an old favourite . I sometimes wonder if they think they’re all related . Kicks being “too big “ is irritating as well

A bit of Cockney Rhyming Slang might make it more interesting!

'Young Tom Johnstone - who's 25 years old now' - sure i heard that not so long back

Trust me.....25 is young. Younger than my eldest granddaughter by 4 years.😧

If you don't like the shy commentary, turn the sound down and use the BBC local radio or BBC Five Live/Sports Extra commentary

They should mix it up a bit, with 'dashing', or 'handsome' or 'fugly'. 

How about the grotesque Morgan Smithies?

And he never even wrecked a ball, even Makinson managed that.
