Footy 20th starts with KISS

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

THE (NRL) Footy Show turns 20 this year. Cel­e­bra­tions launch with a bang when rock glam sen­sa­tions KISS per­form live tonight af­ter the Rabbitohs-Roost­ers block­buster on Chan­nel 9 and re­gional af­fil­i­ate NBN.

Paul ‘‘Fatty’’ Vautin is back as host joined by Michael ‘‘Slats’’ Slater, Beau Ryan, Dar­ryl ‘‘The Big Marn’’ Brohman and Gor­den Tal­lis and re­cur­ring guests Wally Lewis and NRL stars Benji Mar­shall and Billy Slater.

The sea­son launches with the tra­di­tional cur­tain-raiser to the NRL sea­son: the fierce lo­cal derby be­tween the Syd­ney Roost­ers and South Syd­ney Rabbitohs.

The Footy Show tonight fol­lows the Roost­ers-Rabbitohs clash – the first of four Thurs­day night games sched­uled for the open­ing rounds of the com­pe­ti­tion on Nine and NBN.

Ray Hadley is joined by Leila McKin­non to talk big is­sues on the Five in the Bin seg­ment. Erin Molan re­turns with big news sto­ries of the week and Bris­bane sports re­porter Yvonne Samp­son joins the team with more news and features.

Mario ‘‘The Fal­con’’ Fenech is back as po­lit­i­cal cor­re­spon­dent in a fed­eral elec­tion year. Fenech un­suc­cess­fully ran for a seat in the NSW Up­per House for the What’s Do­ing? Party a decade ago and at the Rand­wick Coun­cil elec­tions last year.

Re­turn­ing seg­ments in­clude Crack-AFatty, Beat the Boys and Anti Ad.

The Footy Show airs tonight post­match and moves to its new ear­lier times­lot from April 4 when it broad­casts live on Thurs­days from 8.30pm.

Wally Lewis, Paul Vautin, Yvonne Samp­son, Michael Slater and Gor­den Tal­lis.
