Fox League launch: Four new shows, new-look Sunday Night with Matty Johns, new app

Matty Johns, Bryan Fletcher, Brett Finch and The Professor will move to Sunday nights.

At the 2018 launch of Fox League, the Fox Sports channel has revealed changes to its weekday programming:

Across the week there are four new shows.

New to Monday nights, Big League Wrap, featuring Yvonne Sampson, Mick Ennis and James Hooper with regular contributor Cooper Cronk, will offer unrivalled insight from the weekend’s matches.

Fans can relive every try from the round with Try Time hosted by Lara Pitt premiering on Tuesdays before The Fan offers viewers a look at Rugby League from the game’s biggest fan, Andrew Voss.

Mick Ennis will provide a fresh look at some of the most defining moments in NRL from the best plays, moments and players the game has produced on The Greatest.

Also announced at the launch, Matty Johns, Bryan Fletcher, Brett Finch and The Professor will move to Sunday nights at 6pm with Emma Freedman joining the couch each week to wrap up the round’s action with plenty of laughs on the new-look Sunday Night with Matty Johns.

The revamped channel lineup will see Hannah Hollis take over hosting duties of Queenslanders Only joined each week by the biggest NRL legends north of the border, now on Tuesday nights.

Fox Sports has also announced a new Fox League app, a dedicated Rugby League destination with improved personalisation and the best video, stories and stats.

Foxtel sports subscribers can also enjoy the action on the move using the Foxtel app, at no extra charge.
