With the 2011 Rugby World Cup merely 15 months away, Robbie Deans’ Wallabies have their sights set firmly on a successful 2010 season beginning with four toughTest match encounters in June.
The Wallabies will begin their domestic schedule against Fiji this Saturday night, before facing off with 2003 & 2007 Rugby World Cup nemesis England in a two-Test series for the Cook Cup.
Finally, before they embark on yet another Tri Nations campaign against the might of South Africa and New Zealand, the men in gold face a one-off Test against 2009 triple-crown winners Ireland.
Once again FOX SPORTS will deliver LIVE and UNINTERRUPTED coverage of every Wallabies Test, with additional LIVE coverage of blockbuster internationals featuring the All Blacks, Springboks and France throughout the month of June.
The FOX SPORTS commentary team will be headed by the nation’s best rugby commentator, Greg Clark, alongside a panel of the code’s foremost experts and analysts in former Wallabies Phil Kearns, Greg Martin and sideline commentator Rod Kafer.
FOX SPORTS coverage of all Wallabies matches will also feature in-depth pre and post-game analysis from The Rugby Club’s Nick McArdle and Brendan Cannon, who will be joined on the panel by a current member of the Wallabies squad at each Test.
FOX SPORTS will also continue to provide rugby fans with unprecedented access and insight into the matches through frequent interviews with the key players and coaches before, during and after each Wallabies Test.
Soames Treffry, Director FOX SPORTS Channels, said FOX SPORTS will continue its commitment to providing Australian rugby fans with the nation’s premier rugby broadcast.
“We are always looking at ways to enhance our rugby coverage to provide fans with the most complete coverage of their sport and look forward in particular to the upcoming Test match schedule with so much quality rugby on offer,” said Treffry.
“The whole country is behind the Wallabies and after watching some of our up and coming stars dominate the Super 14 competition, there is a real sense that the Aussies are building towards another golden era,” he said.
As always, FOX SPORTS coverage of the Wallabies will extend beyond the match broadcasts, with www.foxsports.com.au to feature all the latest news, match reports, live scoring and video content to keep fans in the know across the June Test series.
Regular news and match highlights will also be available on the FOX SPORTS News Channel (Ch 513). FOX SPORTS coverage of International Rugby is available to FOXTEL and AUSTAR subscribers.
