NRL coverage


#101

According to the Daily Telegraoh there is a league called who has been demoted of their league caller role.

Anyone else thinking it’s Dan Ginnane


#102

If it’s Dan Ginnane, Nine should sign him up now for the upcoming season, so the network can rely less on Ray Hadley or Tim Gilbert as second commentator.


#103

Dan Ginnane denied it was him on twitter yesterday.


#104

Could be Andrew Moore


#105

If it’s him, maybe ABC wants Richard Svenson to do more matches?


#106

Maybe it’s Richard Svenson?

Assuming he’s Sydney based, there aren’t that many main callers. Is Anthony Maroon still commentating for Triple M? The only others I can think of are David Morrow and Chris Warren from 2GB.


#107

I wonder who ABC also has to call nRL matches? Craig Hamlton?


#108

They have heaps the ABC.
Maroon will still be calling he was doing a music shift a couple of weeks ago.

I’m totally unsure on who it could be.


#109

Also nine have ISP coverage this year and with Dan no longer doing DSL I would’ve be surprised to see him there.


#110

I’m thinking it’s Andrew Moore?


#111

Big step backwards for the ABC if that’s the case. Best caller by far, actually has a personality unlike many people on there.


#112

I was listening to the Rush Hour with MG on Friday. Anthony Maroon was co hosting. Maroon said that he and MG will be working a lot together on Thursday night Football.
Dan was host most of the time last year on Thursdays,

Are you sure? SEN already has its hands full with AFL coverage via its own team and AFL Nation (Crocmedia). It also broadcasts VFL matches via Aussie Digital radio. Doesn’t leave much space for NRL broadcasts.


#115

This could work. They did used to take MML’s Continuous Call Team. Plus they only get sloppy thirds when it comes to AFL matches.


#116

I refer you to the post made earlier in this thread:


#117

Well it’s not Morrow or Chris Warren as Morrow was on CCT today and he was joking him and Warren will practice next week at the double header.

#119

No. Getting any of those guys to do NRL is like getting Barnaby Joyce to commentate on homosexual rugby.


#120

It seems like Crocmedia has secured some of the NRL radio rights. While this isn’t public knowledge yet, a placeholder website has been established which today (before the ‘coming soon’ message now seen appeared) had a list of some (if not all) of the analysts who’ll be involved in their coverage.

Some of the names include Gary Belcher (who already presents Sportsday QLD for Crocmedia), Laurie Daley, Steve Roach and Renee Gartner:
