Will the next Ray Hadley please stand up!

Nova 96.9’s Matt de Groot made his debut as part of the Wide World of Sports commentary team over the weekend, for Channel 9’s rugby league coverage.

The Fitzy & Wippa newsreader will call a game each Sunday during the Canterbury Cup NSW, saying it’s “an incredible opportunity” to learn from the best in the industry.

In addition to his new gig at Nine, de Groot also co-hosts Nova’s Saturday morning breakfast show, Matt, Sarah and Matty J, and the recently launched early breakfast show with Sarah McGilvray from 5-6am weekdays.

This is a dream come true moment… Calling rugby league on @wwos. Starting this afternoon at 1pm on @channel9, for the @canterburycupnsw. It’s a weird time in sport at the moment, but this is a pinch myself moment. #NSWRL #WWOS #footy
