Rugby World Cup 2011, the upcoming videogame of the biggest competition in international rugby, has had its commentators announced today and fans will get a choice of three separate commentary teams so there should hopefully be one that gamers will like. The choice will be between a UK, French or a Southern Hemisphere team. The UK team consists of Stuart Barnes and Miles Harrison who are well-known for their Sky Sports rugby commentary having been the voice of Sky’s Rugby coverage for the past two decades.
If, however, you would prefer a French commentary duo (quit laughing at the back) then hopefully the combination of International Rugby Hall of Fame play Philippe Sella and the lead Rugby Union commentator for Canal+, Eric Bayle, should do the trick. “Where’s my Southern Hemisphere commentary team?” I hear you cry. Well worry no longer as former New Zealand captain Sean Fitzpatrick and Greg Clark, the host of FOX Sports’ ‘Inside Rugby’, have been drafted in to meet your needs.
Rugby World Cup 2011 will be released on 26th August for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 with a demo being available on Xbox Live from tomorrow (2nd August) and Wednesday (3rd August) on the PlayStation Network.
