Gordon Bray, “The Voice of Rugby,” is joining TEN’s team of sports commentators.
He joins previously announced former Wallaby Matt Burke for the 2013 British & Irish Lions Rugby Tour and The Castrol EDGE Rugby Championship.
Bray will make his debut at the first Test between the Wallabies and the British & Irish Lions on Saturday, June 22.
With a career spanning over 40 years in broadcasting across all the leading networks, Bray is rugby’s voice of experience and authority, further bolstering TEN’s commitment to the sport in what is set to be a huge year for the Wallabies.
Gordon Bray said: “I am thrilled to be joining Network Ten as the Chief Rugby commentator, especially in this year of the Lions Series. The Lions Tour of Australia is held every 12 years so this is a once in a lifetime experience for the players. Having previously called the 1989 and 2001 series, I feel very privileged to be commentating on my third Lions campaign.
“I am confident that Network Ten’s energy and commitment to broadcasting a superior rugby telecast nationally will help make this one of the sporting events of the year.”
Network Ten Head of Sport, David Barham, said: “It is a real coup for Network Ten to have Gordon Bray as part of our rugby commentary team.
“Gordon’s passion and excitement for the game is unparalleled. He is without a doubt ‘the voice of rugby’ for all seasons, all grades and all nations.”
TEN is the exclusive free-to-air television broadcaster of the Wallabies Test matches until the end of 2015 and will broadcast all games live, nationally
