The most biased commentary in rugby history

immediately before and after every scarlets try, the commentators heaped praise upon the tigers brilliant defence? bonkers bias mun

I know a scrum and we were not under pressure every scrum, maybe your seats were too far from the pitch to see what's happening. 
Cole has never scrummaged straight but Rob did well in fact better than other occasions v him
Wgj matched genge too, people will say samson did better and he did do well but that was against a prop who had already played 40+ min. 
Think we have good depth at 3 and a good fight there for top sot

Once a Scarlet, always a Scarlet!

I feared the worst after the comfort  of the Nottingham game but we more than held our own for 80 minutes. It was so refreshing as we usually get smashed v Aviva opposition pre season. We were at least their equals . Very proud of the team 👍 looking good

The commentary seconds before the Steff Hughes and Ryan Conbeer tries wasn't even bias, it was just a lack of understanding of what was happening on the pitch. Genuinely bizarre stuff!

Joking aside the commentators did Tigers fans no favours either by their lack of objectivity when something happened in the game due to a Tigers error which led to a turnover or penalty or try or an to their detriment  - all they would say is “that was unfortunate “ or similar. Treated Tiger fans like buffoons as well as us lot. It was free though which was great but I think that they may plan to charge in due course

I gave feedback and was very grateful - I would pay £2 to see it but recommended that either smelly mike or lofty provide balanced commentary alongside them.

Solid showing from the youtube video. Plenty of mistakes, but some promise. I struggled with the commentary as well mind. I can understand home commentators focusing on their own side (it happens with BBC Wales, NI and Alba), but some of the commentary was embarrassing. I know they've got tickets to sell, but I can't imagine their fans want to be patronised like that.

*Scarlets work 40 yards up to the try line through 12 phases, and then Tom Rogers goes over untouched*

"Good defense by Tigers"

*Defenders rush up out of the line, fail to get man-and-ball, then don't reset leaving a massive gap for McNicholl to exploit*

"Great line speed"

*Scarlets gain 10 metres on first-phase ball and Tigers leave a massive space for Kieran Hardy to break*

"Again, good defence"

You could spend all day listing some of the bizarre commentary.

I really like patch as a 10 but he just doesn’t play enough for my liking through no fault of his own he’s just very injury prone I can see Costello getting a load of games and becoming our first choice 10

Can't see anyone except Dinky starting against Edinburgh. Sam is full of class, but I'm still not sure he's ready to carry the load yet. I'd rather see his mercurial talent used against a tiring opposition- for now.
