It would be the world feed.

I think it would be best for a commentator to call the match in the TEN’s studios (either in Sydney or Melbourne) to reduce the cost of flying. As well, 10 out of 48 matches will be shown on either 10 or 10Bold. Having 10 matches on FTA is much cheaper than having many knock-out games live. People can also stream the match via 10play.

I think not. Why do they need to reduce costs. When they last covered a World Cup in France they had all hostings and commentary from France. It adds authenticity and credibility.

Not sure what you’re going on about here. Nonsense.


I thought they all were going to Japan. Roz, Scott Mackinnon, Matt Burke & Gordon Bray.

They are

so Roz is doing both RWC and the Melbourne Cup Carnival. I guess they have to cut her time short in Japan.

They probably think the wallabies won’t make it too far :joy: and they just host from here after the wallabies get knocked out.

Derby Day Melbourne Cup and RWC 2019 final falls on 2 November. What will be the 10 schedule like on that day?

I guess the schedule (EPG) will look a bit like this:

11.30am Melbourne Cup: Derby Day LIVE
6.00pm 10 News First
7.00pm Rugby World Cup: Grand Final LIVE

6pm News. At least it will compete against Seven and Nine News during the hour. For Melbourne viewers, i think they might have the news from either in Flemington or in the Sydney studios (as nationalised bulletin).

Matt Burke said on last nights news he flies off to Japan today to call the rugby. Seems like ten will host from studios and call from the venue. That isn’t a bad set up really given they’re only airing a handful of games.

I thought it was from Japan rather than the studios.

The Australian reporter that Matt white will host from the studio with some experts and cross to Gordon and Matt for the call.

any chance of seeing the article? Little surprising that they are using Matt White when as a matter of fact he was nowhere to be seen on the Rugby telecast for the last couple of months.

10 is sending quite a few off to Japan apparently. They are sending Matt Burke, Gordon Bray, Scott Mackinnon and Roz Kelly there.

Behind a paywall but:
Ten’s RWC coverage will be led by veteran sports broadcaster Gordon Bray and former Wallaby and sports presenter Matt Burke. Ten’s sports presenters Scott Mackinnon and Roz Kelly will also be part of the coverage.

The first game between Japan and Russia will be covered by Bray and Burke from Japan, with White and Australian rugby union player Nick Phipps in the studio at home.

so they have dropped Nathan Sharpe from the Rugby telecast after helping them out with the Rugby tests this winter. I just think they could’ve added a Wallaroos player to join White at the desk, similar to how other sports codes are covered.

The tournament starts tomorrow night but I am yet to see any advertisement on 10’s main channel on the opening match nor Australia’s clash against Fiji on Saturday. No promo, no watermark, no ident. Does 10 wants its coverage to flop?
