Nine has delivered some good news for fans of both the NRL and AFL, with the TV network announcing that it will stream their flagship sports entertainment shows for both codes on its on-demand platform, 9Now.
The NRL Footy Show returned to the TV screens for its 24th year last Thursday, with hosts Paul “Fatty” Vautin, Erin Molan, Beau Ryan and Darryl “The Big Marn” Brohman giving rugby league fans a look at the lighter side of the game, plus unprecedented access to players and insight straight from the playing field.

Meanwhile, Craig Hutchison will take the reins of The AFL Footy Show this Thursday when it also returns for its 24th season.
Hutchison will join Rebecca Maddern, Sam Newman, Billy Brownless, Dave Hughes, Shane Crawford, Damian Barrett and Alex Rance to bring viewers all the latest in the world of AFL, with breaking news, the best in entertainment with AFL’s biggest stars, and all the hilarious fan-favourite segments.
