Footy or Rugby… how are you covering it?

Staff Writer

Whether it’s AFL, NRL or Rugby with the World Cup, while it’s fast coming to the pointy end of season for both AFL and NRL, the Rugby World Cup is ramping up as well.

Here’s a quick snapshot of how some stations are reflecting the code that rules the roost in their markets.

In NZ, it’s the Rugby World Cup.  There’s going to be some early mornings to watch the Rugby World Cup games, so Hauraki breakfast have set-up their very own grandstand at their Hauraki Bar HQ. The promo is tied to Old El Paso, with the big screen, the grandstand and  breakfast tacos being the order of the day. Bang on for their male target. Listeners register on the Hauraki website.


Thanks to Old El Paso Australia & New Zealand we’ve built a grandstand in our bar with a big screen and a projector. Want to join us for some early morning games and breakfast burritos? REGISTER HERE >
