What About Eddie Butler, he has an awsome Voice. A combination of Moore + Mexted would be enough for me to buy the game. Even if it was for comic Value. Anyway, if somone shouts TRYTIMEEEEE over enthusiasticly like the aussie guys do i would be happy.

definitely bladen with brian moore for analysis - you've got the monotonous, slightly drunk hughie and his doppies la hhhraansie and pothhhieter pronunciations; then you have moore getting cross, with lots of 'rubbish' and 'very divvicult'. Brilliant.

Otherwise, the best analyser is jonathan davies, you could put him there with bladen.

Or Butler & Moore cos they've got great chemistry.

Jonathan Davies and Brian Moore would be awesome. Oh and Eddie Butler, but thats mainly because I just like his voice. But I suppose I'm kinda biased given that they're the people I actually hear. If I was to be realistic and not alienate my SH counterparts for a moment, I would probably say Jiffy and Nisbett.

I would guess that they will choose 2 commentators from the NH. As Rugby Challenge have acquired many SH licences it would only make sense that HB target audience will be the NH.

Just an observation.

For some of the British games I would like to have Eddie Butler, Jonathan Davies, Brian Moore etc. Maybe they could be different depending on the teams that are playing. Probably an extreme suggestion considering the budget that HB have to work with but that's what I would like to have.
