Despite all the typical bad news that the NRL clubs seem to unveil every season, here is some good news.
Good news for rugby league fans around the country with SKY Sport announcing Andrew Voss will commentate all Warriors home-games alongside ex-Kiwi player turned broadcaster Daryl Halligan. The highly experienced pair will bring viewers every kick and collision over the NRL season from Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium, Eden Park and Wellington’s Westpac Stadium.
And then there are the usual suspects.
SKY Sport’s Stephen McIvor will continue to present all rugby league coverage in New Zealand and will team up with Halligan for all NRL pre-game shows in New Zealand before kick-off.
Behind the microphone for the newly named Holden Cup will be experienced commentators Dale Husband, Awen Guttenbeil and Richard Barnett.
SKY Sport’s signature rugby league show 40/20 will feature Stephen McIvor as host alongside former Kiwi players Daryl Halligan, Awen Guttenbeil, Richard Barnett, Monty Betham and other special rugby league guests.
Of course they did. Who else would possibly be in contention for this and be able to broadcast every game, either live or delayed?
Sky also have the FTA rights but an announcement about those are still pending.
SKY has today signed a five-year broadcast rights partnership with the NRL that will bring the excitement of the Telstra Premiership, Holden State of Origin and the Holden Cup to viewers across New Zealand.
On the day of the most anticipated Telstra Premiership in memory, SKY can confirm exclusive coverage of all Warriors Telstra Premiership matches, the Harvey Norman Rugby League All Stars, the Holden State of Origin Series, Telstra Premiership Finals Series and Grand Final will be shown live on SKY Sport.
