Michael Corcoran. Legend.

Waffler was always a fan of radio commentary. Think about it. How does one get across the spirit of a game when the listener can’t see the game? Step forward, Michael Corcoran. Long standing rugby commentator, Michael has seen plenty of highs and lows. And after seeing the failure of Leinster in the Heineken Cup, it was left to Munster to fight their way out of the ‘Pool of Death’.

I used to think that Gabriel Egan at the Euro ’88 finals against England was one of the great pieces of commentary. But have a listen to Corcoran almost have a heart attack as O’Gara breaks after 22 phases, passes to Leamy who dodges one challenge and falls over the line.

Clicky here.

And if you’re wondering about the visuals…

  1. “6 minutes from the end .. in the middle of a downpour .. who gives a damn”!!

    Legend or more accurately LIGIND is the way to describe him!

    Fair play Eoin – brought me right back there, rain and all!

  2. Brilliant. And the contrast with Sky commentary couldn’t be more striking.
