I have enjoyed 3 Olympic Games so far as a broadcaster, and 3 Stanley Cups. I’ve also been a part of multiple World Championships and European Tournaments. I have had fun at all these levels calling various sports from Ice Hockey to Basketball. On July 8th I was fortunate enough to commentate on my 1st Rugby League Game! The Toronto Wolfpack hosted the Gloucestershire All Golds at Lamport Stadium. I can say without hesitation that it was one of the most enjoyable assignments I’ve ever had. Brian Noble and Blake Wallace were sublime joining me in the media booth. Toronto won the game in the end, but the 2 hours was an intense time for me…calling a new sport but having as much fun as I’ve ever had at work! Here are some of the highlights from that sunny day in Canada!
Thanks to Eric Perez, and everyone with the Wolfpack for an amazing adventure! Big thanks to Brian and Blake for the great insight on the broadcast.
