Gareth selected for Rugby Union World Cup

14th September 2015

Gareth will be involved in the 2015 Rugby Union World Cup in England, after being selected to provide stadium commentaries.

Working with Progress Productions, the company that delivered media services and sports presentation for the London Olympics in 2012, Gareth will commentate on all games taking place at Leeds' Elland Road Stadium and The King Power Stadium in Leicester.

Gareth will be joined by summarisers including Scotland legend Alan Tait and England International Jordon Crane in the press box to provide commentaries for fans within the stadiums. 

80,000 combined will be inside Elland Road for the two games there; while Leicester's 32,000 capacity ground hosts three games.

The games Gareth will commentate on are: 

Italy v Canada - Elland Road

Scotland v USA - Elland Road

Argentina v Tonga - The King Power Stadium

Canada v Romania - The King Power Stadium

Argentina v Namibia - The King Power Stadium

"It is an honour to be officially involved in the Rugby Union World Cup and I am very excited about it," said Gareth.

"To be involved in games that include a home nation in Scotland and rugby giant Argentina is wonderful and they should be great games."
