    I thought SKy were put into a corner and didn't know what to do. Jenna Brooks (who is a great upgrade on Angela Power) going on about Warrington players in a huddle, being their way of showing respect for BLM. I thought Wilkin's analysis was good, comments like when Danny Richardson put it into touch just before HT, Wilkin saying it was the wrong option, you should only do that when you are leading not two behind. I hope he stays on.

    I’m currently watching the Catalans/Cas game.

    I thought Leon’s comments were superb, and Clarke seems to have taken leave of his daft ness. Thought it was funny when Carmel asked Wilkin if he’d been paid yet (on the Sky Vodcast about Toronto he commented he’d not been paid)

    Wilkin is destined for a career in broadcasting, he’s a good looking bloke, has personality and experience and success at the highest level plus his great analysis. If Sky don’t tie him up it’s their loss
    Can't stop the spirits when they need you.

    This life is more than just a read through.

    I loved Wilkins honesty. Said how the game should be played, even though he'd give away penalty after penalty.

    As someone else said, they made a rod for their own backs but I'd of respected them a lot more putting the question to Folau. Price's comments were much more in keeping with reality than rent a gob Offiah's were last week. Hopefully they've realised it needed toning down.

    Wilkin is a PR man`s dream, almost a neutral northern accent, intelligence and explanations to back up seemingly poor decisions of players.
    Brought the best out in Terry and Jon Wells who is usually insightful, that is a sure sign of a very good presenter/commentator.
    Leon was easy to understand for a Yorkshire lad but his five and a kick tactics, side to side rugby has a limited shelf life and build pressure is exactly what we have been listing to for the last 15 years. Surprising for such a dynamic running player who enjoyed playing space, not the man, just shows that similar to KC they have a vision of how RL should be played and will stick to that come what may.

    Nice to finally see some saints lads on the team. Sick of constant biased Wigan views.

    But to be that dynamic running player needs the forwards to do the hard work. It's as true now as it's anyways been. We saw ourselves before lockdown our pack getting put on the back foot and the halfbacks having no time to play

    He wasn't bad yesterday although he looked like he'd got dressed in a charity shop explosion.

    Good to see a number of players not taking the knee at the start of the Salford/Hull game. About time folk thought for themselves and were not brow beaten in to signing up to something they know nothing about. It was a great performance from Salford too! The new changes certainly suit them, as they do all ball playing attack orientated teams.

    Did I hear John Wells say that the new rules should suit Hull FC? Who’d be a pundit eh?

    I thought Pryce was very good putting the Catalans point of view forward. I think we all just think 1 1/2 hrs on a plane, but he was talking about 7-8 hrs in total, which is a bit different.

    Nowhere near the line, and he pulled it back then pushed it forward.

    Looked like he had it in his right hand only in the tackle, ball ends up on the ground and his right arm is nowhere near it, looked like a knock on for all money for me.
