The 2023 Rugby World Cup is now just around the corner, with the tournament taking place from 8 September to 28 October, with broadcasting giant SuperSport set to comprehensively cover all the games.
Notably, it’s now been confirmed that ex-All Blacks great – and now popular broadcaster – Justin Marshall will be joining South Africa’s SuperSport’s coverage in France.
The 81-test veteran told the Otago Daily Times he was disappointed when Sky announced in March he was not part of the four-man team set to provide coverage at the World Cup, but their loss is now SuperSport’s gain.
“Rugby World Cups are what you call the game for, and particularly when you’re in a foreign country,” Marshall told the Otago Daily Times. “It really challenges you, and that’s what I love. It’s what gets you out of bed.
“But decisions are made for various reasons which you don’t have any control of.”
