NRL on Nine


#1448

Is there one where both teams just don’t leave the dressing room and don’t play? :rofl:


#1449

Not yet mate :wink:


#1450

I’m watching Space Jam. Tell me if both teams suddenly fall ill and explode. :wink: :rofl:


#1451

Will do


#1452


Using referee cam on 9Now app so I don’t have to put up with ads and Gus and Ray in commentary box.


#1453

NRL Telecast finished at 7:55pm in Perth to head off to Nine News.


#1454

are nine and fox both showing the test match live?


#1455

Yes.


#1456

GEM in Melbourne I assume? (I’m in Melbourne this weekend)


#1457

So Nine news is at 5pm?


#1458

Only in NSW and ACT. In Queensland, NZ v Australia will be at 4.30pm local time followed by Nine News at 7.15pm.


#1459

Official national live streaming audience for the NRL grand final on 9Now was 45,000.


#1460

No Ray Warren for the test, i assume. Matt Thompson likely for the Test match.


#1461

Did the trans tasman test finish like 15min early or something did it?

Because I was channel surfing and was on 9Gem for a moment, EPG said “Escape From Alcatraz” scheduled to finish at 10:39pm and suddenly after a FFF promo “The Quick and the Dead” started around 10:25pm and the EPG also subsequently changed in front of my eyes (which Nine commonly do - which I like).


#1462

Coverage finished at 8PM EDST


#1463

Correct. We all know about Rabs’s fear of flying.

Next week’s test against Tonga will only be on Gem.

Also Gus put out a tweet saying his commentary duties for 9 are done for the year which makes me wonder will 9Gem only be taking the feed from Sky Sports New Zealand


#1464

I’d suspect they’d just go with Joey and Freddy alongside Thompson, and have someone else alongside Lockyer for HT/FT.


#1465

And I suspect it will be hosted from the studio with no Nine personalities visible on ground.


#1466

Nine announced at this afternoon’s upfronts there would be two post-match shows in 2019.
Recently retired players Sam Thaiday and Billy Slater will join Nine’s commentary team from next year.


#1467

And off goes my television set.
