The Footy Show Premieres This Friday

The Footy Show team returns to Prime this Friday at 9.30pm for another great fun-filled sports season. Prime will be bringing you everything you love about The Footy Show plus new footy features. The tipping competition is back, alongside Crack-A-Fatty, Daredevil Dudes and there are big cash prizes on offer once again.

The first Footy Show of the year comes to New Zealand viewers from the Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre in readiness for the 2005 NRL season that also kicks off officially this weekend. The Footy Show is the most watched television programme dedicated to rugby league, sport and all its fiercely loyal fans.

Madcap presenters Fatty, The Chief, Matthew Johns and new Warriors consultant Peter “Sterlo” Sterling turn it up for laughs and mayhem.

Fresh from a Daredevil Dudes segment and Warriors training session in Queenstown and Auckland, the boys will be up to their usual craziness and you get to keep up with all the sports action play-by-play with The Footy Show every Friday night at 9.30pm on Prime.
