As Super League comes to terrestrial TV for the first time

Adam Hills is to present Channel 4’s coverage of the rugby Super League – as matches are shown live on free terrestrial TV for the first time in its 26-year history.

The comic – who plays for the Warrington Wolves Physical Disability Rugby League team – will front the broadcast of ten live matches each year.

He said: ‘I love rugby league. I’ve been a fan since I was three days old, when my Dad brought a South Sydney Rabbitohs toy rabbit to the hospital for me.

‘Presenting rugby league for Channel 4 will be a childhood dream come true. I intend to play the role of an excited fan, asking loads of questions to the experts alongside me. Hopefully, I can relay the passion, the excitement and the inclusive nature of the game to the viewers.’

Channel 4’s head of sport Pete Andrews added: ‘Adam is the perfect presenter for our Super League coverage. He’s passionate and knowledgeable about the sport, he plays rugby league and he’s already hugely popular with Channel 4 audiences.

‘As soon as we secured the deal to show Super League, he was at the top of our wish list and I’m thrilled he’ll be fronting our coverage."’

The regular line-up of presenters will also include Helen Skelton reporting from the live fixtures and Mark Wilson, who will be commentating.
