“Kiwis are passionate about a well-presented game of rugby – and we’re really confident that the addition of Scotty to the team will set up the coverage of the Rugby World Cup on Spark Sport and TVNZ to be a classic.”

In addition to his Rugby World Cup 2019 responsibilities, Stevenson will work across other sports properties on Spark Sport as well as taking on a sports reporting role for 1 NEWS.

It’s really great to have Scotty join the 1 NEWS sports team in the build-up to the biggest event of next year, the Rugby World Cup.”
