Sean Maloney and Andrew Swain have also been announced to call every play, tackle and heart-stopping moment in Australian rugby.

“I’m extremely proud of the incredibly talented and qualified line-up of talent we have brought together to deliver what will be the most comprehensive rugby coverage seen to date in Australia,” Nine’s head of rugby, Murray Shaw said in a statement. “We are bringing a fantastic product to rugby fans new and old as we kick off a new era of the game.”
