Rugby World Cup 2011 Commentary Teams Announced

by on August 1, 2011

505 Games has today announced that the commentary for HB Studios’ upcoming Rugby World Cup 2011 title will feature three seperate commentary teams. There will be a UK commentary team, consisting of Sky Sports duo Stuart Barnes and Miles Harrison. Greg Clark and Sean Fitzpatrick will head up the southern hemisphere commentary, while Philippe Saya and Eric Bayle will oversee proceedings in French.

A talented collection of broadcasters with years of Rugby experience, in both commentating and playing, is sure to beef up Rugby World Cup 2011, which releases this August 26.

Some may not be the biggest fans of Sky Sports duo of Barnes and Harrison, but quit complaining, you can always swap over to the southern hemisphere commentary. If you speak French, then you’ll have even more choice.

Check out the official trailer for Rugby World Cup 2011 if you haven’t seen it yet, you may be pleasantly surprised. We recently went hands-on with the game and will have our impressions with you later this week.

Rugby World Cup 2011 releases August 26, for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
