SKY TV will punt league caller Jason Costigan this week and replace him as their live caller for Warriors and Kiwis games with anchorman Stephen McIvor, the Sunday Star-Times can reveal.

The reshuffle is likely to be formalised this week, and it's understood Costigan hasn't been told yet by Sky bosses that he's no longer wanted.

A plan to use Costigan to call away Warriors games in Australia has been shelved, apparently on cost grounds, and he may have no role at all on the network next year.

McIvor, who fronts the league coverage and calls the Toyota Cup under-20 games, will step up to lead commentator. He will be replaced on Toyota Cup coverage by veteran broadcaster Dale Husband, while the rest of the team – former Kiwis internationals Awen Guttenbeil, Daryl Halligan, Logan Swann and Richie Barnett – will remain unchanged.

The colourful Costigan has been flown over from his native Australia to call all Sky games since he replaced another Australian, Graeme Hughes, behind the mic. An always jovial and deeply-knowledgeable league enthusiast, his inimitable commentary style has brought both fans and detractors.

He began calling league in 1997 for regional television in Queensland and has written for League Week, and worked in PR for the Bulldogs and Bradford Bulls clubs, the Central Queensland NRL franchise bid and state government.

The well-regarded McIvor began his career in radio but joined Sky when the network was first launched back in 1990 and has worked across a range of sports, but primarily in league, mostly recently as frontman of magazine show 40/20.

Both McIvor and Sky's league producer, Dean Pooley, declined to comment. Costigan could not be reached last night.

League fans will know who this annoying prick is, particularly Warriors fans.

Well there is Laurie will his wanks over the Raiders and any other young NSW hopeful.
There is Warren 'I sound constipated" Smith,
Wayne Pearce (who sort of counts) struggle to put together a simple sentence.
Ryan Phelan with his so called analysis.

Every time Gus commentates, I feel like i want to throw a brick at his massive forehead. He is a good commentator though.

Ryan Phelan isn't a commentator. He just hosts Monday night football and thinks he knows his RL. When he barely knows the rules.

Sad sad times, when Costo is around you know the coverage will be made exciting. Shame on all you haters at least he isn't boring as f*** who cares if he is abit bias. Hopefully gets a gig somewhere else, if not forever remembered Costo.
