NRL commentator heaps praise on Leeds Rhinos’ Headingley Stadium and on Warrington Wolves

To those down under, the voice of rugby league is Andrew Voss.

Now, when it’s a World Cup, a lot of focus is on the world class players we get to see in the country that we wouldn’t get to see normally.

Already Joey Manu, Mitchell Moses, Josh Addo-Carr, James Tedesco and others have caught the eye representing their countries on British soil.

But it often sees a further crossover of other aspects of rugby league including in the commentary box.

On BBC so far in the tournament we’ve seen so many famous faces and heard some brilliant voices and even those we more commonly see on Sky Sports or Channel 4.

But one of the most exciting voices to hear has been Mr Voss who has been commentating on the NRL for years and is well loved by all who listen to him.

To anyone following him on Twitter, it’s clear that Vossy is loving his time in England and has already heaped praise on two Super League clubs.

He attended Australia vs Fiji, not in the commentary box, at Headingley and described it as another “heaven” having also been at St James’ Park for England vs Samoa that day.

He also said it was one of the greatest grounds in the world:

“I’ve died and gone to heaven for the second time today. A privilege to be at one of the greatest grounds in the world. Headingley I love you.”

Meanwhile, last night he commentated on New Zealand vs Lebanon at Warrington’s Halliwell Jones Stadium and took to Twitter to say: “I love this town.”

The next stop on his rugby league tour is to St Helens when Tonga take on Papua New Guinea.
