Legendary Australian commentator has final say on British rugby league as he heads home

Often we only realise how good something is when someone else lays eyes on it.

That might be the case for rugby league in the UK.

Many have claimed over the years that the sport is dying, that it is on the wrong tracks, that the same level of passion and love for the sport no longer exists.

However, what we have seen from legendary Australian commentator Andrew Voss has shown that the sport is still as fantastic as ever in this country.

In the UK to cover the Rugby League World Cup with the BBC, Vossy has been to see grounds at all levels.

He’s visited Leeds Rhinos, Warrington Wolves, St Helens, Bradford Bulls, Wakefield Trinity, Castleford Tigers, Hull FC, Batley Bulldogs, Dewsbury Rams, the Cumbrian clubs and plenty of others.

He has shone a light on what makes rugby league special with every trip and given huge praise to the sport and its clubs.

He now is set to depart for home but had a farewell message and a final say on the sport in the UK: “I’m tired boss. Dog tired. Thank you UK rugby league fans for making me so welcome this past 6 weeks. Loved every ground and every club I visited. If passion & love for your club were the only ingredients required for success; rugby league would rule the world. Until next time.”
