Former Kangaroos, NSW Blues and Penrith Panthers star Ryan Girdler has signed on to join Nine’s NRL Footy Show from 2018.
Girdler, who holds the record for most points scored in a single match by a NSW Blues player, will join the panel full-time alongside Andrew Johns, host Erin Molan and regular contributors Darryl Brohman and Beau Ryan in a new-look format for the show as it enters its 25th year on air.
Andy O’Brien, executive producer of The NRL Footy Show, said: “We’re thrilled that Ryan is joining The Footy Show. Ryan’s contributions over the years are well documented, from the early days on the panel to presenting his extremely popular Their House segment.
“What you see is what you get with Ryan, a good-humoured, good-natured, knowledgeable and experienced thinker. It’s great to have Girds talking footy on Nine.”
Girdler will make his full-time debut on March 8 after the NRL season opener between the Dragons and Broncos.
