‘Hold your heads high picking this team’ – Premier Sports viewers enthuse about star-studded line-up on its opening night

Premier Sports ushered in a new era last night as Featherstone Rovers overcame a stubborn York City Knights side, 30-12.

The new host Emma Jones appeared vibrant, asking new pundits Kevin Brown and Leon Pryce insightful and straight-to-the-point questions whilst St Helens Women’s Jodie Cunningham added another dimension to the line-up.

Commentator Mark Wilson demonstrated just why he is so highly-rated with a smooth and passionate analysis of the game, though pundit Ross Fiddes did find himself on the receiving end of some cracking Brian McDermott comments.

All in all, it was a tremendous success with the views of two recently-retired players offering a great deal to viewers – and the viewers certainly agreed.

Twitter users found the new set-up exciting, with a great number voicing their support on the social media page.

One person summed it up well: “Premier Sports commentary team are really good.”

Another hailed the coverage, saying well done to the pundits in the process: @eljonesuk @leonpryce6 @kevjonbrown @Jodie_cunny Well done all of you the coverage was top class.”

Another was happy to have rugby on Monday nights: “Great coverage. Monday nights sorted.”

That sentiment was echoed by another viewer.

Another was even more enthusiastic about the line-up.

One viewer described the Premier Sports punditry team as ‘very intelligent’.
