MRN’s New Show

Staff Writer

This Sunday the Macquarie Radio Network launches The Rugby Show across 2GB, 4BC and into Melbourne and Perth via NTS Digital. Fronted by former Wallaby and Waratah Phil Waugh and Macquarie Radio Sports Presenter James Willis, the show will cover the Bledisloe Cup and Rugby Championships and then follow the path of the Wallabies in the Rugby World Cup being played in the UK.

Phil Waugh said: “2015 is a huge year for rugby with the Wallabies a chance to win the Bledisloe Cup, the Rugby Championship and the ultimate prize in rugby – the Rugby World Cup!..

 “We will have the world’s best players and administrators talk us through their thoughts on the game and which way they see the results going. This program will be insightful and entertaining providing an educational and intelligent opinion on ‘the game they play in heaven’.”

Macquarie says it has worked closely with the Australian Rugby Union to secure access to players, coaches and officials to provide the most compelling rugby union content, plus listeners will receive the best insight and analysis with a number of FOX SPORTS rugby commentators set to make appearances on the show. 

Macquarie Radio Network National Agency Sales Director Nick Randall said: “Rugby union is the latest addition to Macquarie Radio’s unrivalled sports programming including the NRL, AFL and cricket broadcast rights, official media partnerships with the Australian Open Tennis, Australian Grand Prix and Melbourne Cup Carnival and an A League show. The Rugby Show will add rugby union to our newly-merged network’s commitment to offering listeners and advertisers the best possible radio access and coverage to sport in the country.”

 The Rugby Show commences on Sunday August 9th from 11am until 12 noon (AEST) and will run for 13 weeks through until the morning after the Rugby World Cup final on Sunday November 1st.
