Mark Regan handbags, with comedy by Brian Moore

Mark Regan handbags, with comedy by Brian Moore

Former England hooker Brian Moore is proving to be quite the entertainer this year, with his outspoken commentary becoming a feature whenever England play. Moore rips into his England team in a way that no commentator before him has done, and it's quite refreshing to say the least. Celebrating and lambasting his players as though he were a coach, Moore is blunt as ever.

As a neutral or even an England supporter, I'm sure it's nice to hear that someone acknowledges when players are doing foolish things on the field. Ian Balshaw, who's not the most popular amongst fans currently, gets literally shouted at by Moore at the beginning of this clip. The 'You're a fullback!!' comment wouldn't normally be heard by professional commentators. But hey, it's funny to hear that type of thing in the middle of a serious test match.

Mark Regan also got told off by Moore for his swinging elbows on a French player who was holding his collar. The ref handled it well though in my view, with no further action needed.

As for Brian Moore, he calls it as he sees it. He's bias and he admits that, which is good to see and makes for some entertaining commentary, something that's been lacking in the past.
