FOX League’s new call on classic games

FOX League is getting creative in challenging times.

Up against a lack of new NRL the channel will screen FOX League Classics -allowing viewers to vote on classic matches- which will all be given brand new commentary.

Andrew Voss, Warren Smith and Dan Ginnane will be joined by some of the biggest names in the game including Matty Johns, Greg Alexander, Steve Roach, Mick Ennis, Braith Anasta and Bryan Fletcher to re-call classic rugby league matches.

Fans will vote on eight classic games via each week, with the top four to be broadcast and re-called the following weekend.
