I’m sure the people of Brisbane would love that. I know Triple M can’t help it but still
Last evening’s match between the Storm and the Knights was not broadcast on ABC News Radio in Melbourne because it overlapped with the start of A-League match between Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory. News Radio chose to air the soccer instead.
NRL Nation coverage for Round 7:
Triple M coverage for Round 7:
Thursday: Bulldogs v Roosters
Friday: Warriors v Dragons
Saturday: Rabbitohs v Raiders (Sydney only), Cowboys v Titans (Brisbane only)
Sunday: Sharks v Panthers
Is Chris Warren going to call the NZ game live at Mt. Smart, or from a studio like Fox does?
There’s only one fulltime radio booth at Mt Smart. Occupied by Radio Sport NZ.
I’d say that he’ll do it from the studio, as you said, there is only one fulltime radio booth at Mt Smart.
Who covers the Warriors matches these days for Radio Sport NZ?
Brenton Vannisselroy replaced Alan McLaughlin.
Andrew Moore did the double header a few weeks back, maybe ABC wanted him doing it.
My source at ABC tells me that ABC offered to send Andrew Moore over as otherwise Radio Sport wasn’t going to produce a call as resources (commentators and back-ups as well as production) were tied up with Commonwealth Games.

2HD listeners in Newcastle would be expecting to hear Knights vs Sharks on Sunday arvo, not Tigers vs Bulldogs.
At least 1233 ABC and KOFM would be covering the Knights.
NRL Nation coverage for Round 13 (only four matches this round due to State of Origin next week)
Triple M will also broadcast these two matches.
Listening now and they actually have Mat Thompson calling the Eels v Knights game instead of Chris Warren who is doing sideline.
Hadley calling the State of Origin.
