If you know rugby league then there is a good chance you have heard the voice of Mick Morgan.
Famous for his line “I can’t speak,” he has been the voice of Castleford Tigers games for years and years and his commentary has been referenced time and again.
He also has strong links with Wakefield Trinity and the two battled at the bottom of Super League last night.
Before the game, Morgan appeared as a guest on Sky Sports and said that the game can’t afford for a team in West Yorkshire like Castleford, Wakefield or Leeds Rhinos to go down.
He said on Sky: “We can’t afford Leeds or Wakefield to go down. This will be packed here tonight. It will packed here tonight and the same at Belle Vue when we go there.
“We can’t afford for any of these teams to go down.”
Meanwhile, Jon Wells emphasised how much the two clubs should fear relegation at this early stage of the season because of the success of Leigh Leopards to start the season:
“No I don’t think it is because of how well Leigh Leopards have started to life in Super League they have put the cat amongst the pigeons.
“Wakefield certainly won’t have been expecting to trouble the Grand Final dressing rooms at the end of the year but they would have been going ‘we have Leigh Leopards and history tells us the side who goes up goes straight back down.’
“That’s not happened.”
IF Wakefield were relegated, they will Not be the First Club to go down, sorry no favours Morgan for Yorkshire Clubs.
