    Gus calls it ‘an extraordinary Origin’.

    Gus calls it ‘an extraordinary Origin’.

    It’s never bad for rugby league when Queensland wins, according to Gus, who applauds Origin 3 as “the best theatre the game can offer”. Fine performance from fullbacks had commentators forgetting to do their job, throwing down their headphones to cheer. 

    Mat pins the Blues’ loss on one man who has recently returned from overseas.

    And there’s still an exciting 18th round ahead.

Mick the Pom ,

Round 8

Gus is brilliant in the Episode for Round 8. I listen in from London every week. Fantastic Insight for someone like me who follows the NRL from the other side of the World.

Roger Dismal ,

Dreadful

If i could give it zero stars i would. Gould has to make it all about himself. He spends most of his time mumbling which makes it hard to understand what he is babbling on about.

AustralianD ,

Great Insight - Do more each week!

Even as a Queenslander, I really enjoy Gus' analysis of the game and James is great at asking questions that inspire Gus to go on a rant. I think he's the most insightful of all the commentators and sees everything happening in games, both on and off the Ball. I think there's enough content to warrant at least 2 podcasts a week and more around origin time.

There isn't enough NRL content generally, so please pump out more episodes next season!
