Benji Marshall joins Triple M Footy lineup
Veteran NRL star Benji Marshall has joined Triple M’s NRL commentary lineup.
“When you get a bit older, you have to start finding things to do after footy and to be a part of the Triple M team is a privilege for me,” he said.
“I am going to call the game as I see it, and I am not going to be stripping shreds of anyone unless it’s any of the forwards I don’t like,” he said.
Marshall joins the likes of Ryan Girdler, Wendell Sailor, Peter ‘Sterlo’ Sterling, James Hooper, Tony Squires, Gordan Tallis, Paul Kent, Ryan Girdler and Anthony Maroon, who are already part of the Triple M team.
Plus, each weekday, Ben ‘Dobbo’ Dobbin and Mark ‘MG’ Geyer, among others, deliver sports programs across local Triple M stations, breaking down the latest in news and getting an insider’s view into the world of NRL.
On Newcastle 102.9 Triple M, Jim Callinan joins Michael ‘Hages’ Hagan and Marc ‘MG’ Glanville for every Newcastle Knights home game this season.
In 2021, Triple M Footy will cover all key games including the State of Origin series and the Grand Final, planned for October 3.
SCA’s head of sports content, Ewan Giles, said of the lineup: “Triple M is incredibly lucky to have the best minds in footy located all across Australia, with our NRL call teams stacked with big names and big opinions.
“We pride ourselves in developing the next generation of talent, with players recently out of the game, such as Ben Hannant, along with those still playing their trade at the highest level, like Benji Marshall.”
The network also announced a new sponsor, in the form of Canadian Club & Dry, which joins the likes of McDonald’s, Rheem Hot Water, CBUS Super and Mitsubishi.
SCA’s national head of sport and partnerships, Trevor Crook, said: “The long-term nature of our many partners speaks to the ROI of our offering. Quite simply, Triple M Footy provides all partners with an effective, engaging and truly national seven month communication platform, at scale.”
