Rugby commentators in Australia

OK, I live here and I should probably stop complaining, but I feel the need to vent my frustration. Aussie rugby commentators are, well, crap!

Not only are (were!) they biased towards the Wallabies, but you think that they would learn to pronounce the players' names before the game. Or at least write them down phonetically to help themselves. You could easily write Skulk for Schalk Burger, but instead Schalk becomes Shelk, Jaques Fourie becomes Jack Foori, Danie Rossouw becomes Danny Russo, Steyn becomes Steeeen, Botha becomes Booter and Smit and Smith get mixed up!

And I sometimes wonder if these guys are even rugby fans when they call England the Lions!? Come on Channel Ten, spend some money on decent commentary!

Chat soon,

PS: How did the All Blacks reduce their carbon footprint after their trip to Europe? They dropped the Wallabies off on the way home!

It can't have been worse than some of the crap they've been speaking on Setanta sports... sometimes I wonder if they're watching the same game I am. And SERIOUSLY biased against the Springboks too!

Hey I'm not fussed as long as we keep winning. Showing my face to work next Monday will NOT be fun if England beats us :(
