Great choices. Especially Rory McClaren

that night Port play Brisbane in the afl round 1 as well too Seven wont be able to do much on the main channel etc they might after the game there though

Maybe AFL on 7mate for SA Decides coverage on main? or election updates at QT & 3QT and a bulletin at HT?

not sure how Rory will go as an anchor, his style is a bit… OTT… Though maybe he’s just doing the analysis.
Jess is fantastic though, glad to see her getting a go finally.

Interesting they’re finally letting Kate anchor on election night, last few have been Brenton solo with Kate out somewhere.

I’d say 7s will match pretty identical. Haven’t seen any promotion yet though.
