    Considering it's an AFL free day and Storm not playing until Monday, it's pretty crook. When are Rugby administrators going to see the bleeding obvious? Thank f@ck the Mungos will be on soon.

    Charlie Gamble the "Neville from Subbies" only took 39 minutes of trans Tasman to become "Charlie Gamble the Man form Christchurch".

    GTT!!

    Really enjoy Justin Harrison’s commentary. You can tell why he was part of a successful organisation

    Very clever scheduling having all games in super round counted as kiwi home games. The crowds appear to be exclusively kiwi supporters

    You're failing to mention the fact that he excuses every issue with the most cynical team in Super Rugby. When Harrison is commentating, the Brumbies can do no wrong, but that's no different from Horan - Reds, Turinui - Tahs and Reds or Maloney - Tahs and sometimes Rebels.

    perhaps I am watching a different version of STAN.

    Or

    I am not looking for an excuse to hate it.

    I enjoy Sean Maloney's commentary. His Love and enthusiasm for the game I find contagious.

    Justin Harrisons' friendly niggle with Andrew Mehrtens is funny.

    The rest I can take or leave. But I enjoy it as a whole.

    I would generally agree X. But I do find Maloney's commentary a little over-egged at times. The bias doesn't worry me too much. It's nowhere near the level of Kearns’ embarrassing whining. It would be a little strange if they weren't TBH. But trying to gloss over foul play is crossing the line IMO.

    I like Maloney, his commentary is about the game. I agree I don't want to hear Horan moan anything not Reds/Qld. Mitchell "can I not tell anyone how much I feel ripped off from the Force" rhetoric. Every other once player from another team is annoying, just wish Sharp, Cannon or someone so not " oh my god, Shute shield/ my school/ can I never say good play by the X player who is currently playing with "Y" team be it Force or not. Merthens I find hilarious with his forgetful commentary et al but the fact he cares more for the game and spectacle then showing who he has rubbed shoulders with is refreshing. I like the game, i dont really care for their school

    They do seem to be pretty bipartisan when complaining about foul play penalties being given.

    He's pleasantly surprised me too. Used to annoy the crap outta me when he played. The most hilarious bit of forgettery he's related so far was from his playing days in France. He forgot to pack spare jocks on game day. Had to borrow from a meticulously prepared team mate who always took a 3-pack. Nick Berry
