Spearheading the line-up of talent are leading rugby hosts Roz Kelly and Nick McArdle, both of whom have interviewed the who’s who of the sport and have experience hosting some of the biggest blockbuster events in the world over their distinguished media careers.

Joining them will be a team of former Wallaby superstars including Tim Horan, Morgan Turinui, Drew Mitchell and Justin Harrison, former All-Black legend Andrew Mehrtens, and former dual-code international star Allana Ferguson to analyse and explain every aspect of the match.

Experienced commentators Sean Maloney and Andrew Swain will be there to call every cunning play, crunching tackle and heart-stopping moment of all the biggest games throughout the year.

Murray Shaw, Nine’s Head of Rugby, said:

“I’m extremely proud of the incredibly talented and qualified line-up of talent we have brought together to deliver what will be the most comprehensive rugby coverage seen to date in Australia. We are bringing a fantastic product to rugby fans new and old as we kick off a new era of the game.”

Nine’s Wide World of Sport will produce every game appearing on Nine and Stan Sport, with cutting-edge technology and studios at the core of the all-new presentation that will offer the best possible experience for sports fans.

For the first time in the professional era, Super Rugby will be available to a free-to-air audience on Nine, with a game from the elite competition broadcast each Saturday live on 9Gem. Wallabies test matches played in Australia and New Zealand will also broadcast live on Nine.
