The Logie Award-winning NRL Footy Show has returned to its spiritual home of Thursday night.
Footy Show panelists Paul “Fatty” Vautin, Erin Molan, Beau Ryan and Darryl “The Big Marn” Brohman are back in The Footy Show’s 24th year.
Everyone’s favourite segments are back, headed up by Small Talk with The Big Marn, where Darryl Brohman will again put the footy schoolkids of Australia under the spotlight with more unscripted hilarious moments.
One of the show’s most popular segments, Player Probe, is back with a twist. This year the superstars of the NRL will go one on one with our own Beau Ryan, opening up to The Footy Show on all sorts of topics.
Speaking of Beau, Beau Knows is back, and he will continue to deliver his unique interviews and segments with his Hollywood heavyweight mates. Beau will have some new surprises as he reunites with his old partner in crime, Sharks star and two-time premiership winner, Chris Heighington.
Joining the Footy Show team on a regular basis throughout the season, to provide expert commentary and a few laughs along the way, will be some of the game’s biggest names including Johnathan Thurston, Billy Slater, Sam Thaiday, James Maloney, Matt Moylan, as well as Jillaroos superstar Allana Ferguson and rugby league’s most loveable larrikin, Tommy Raudonikis, who will feature every week.
There will be more new segments including Between The Sticks, a weekly roundup of the best of country and local footy as well as keeping an eye on the NSW and Queensland Cups. And a new competition will feature the best team victory songs each week performed by any footy team in the land.
The Footy Show will hit the road this year with both State of Origin teams. Origin I will see the full show travelling to join the New South Wales Blues in their pre-game camp, and then it’s off to regional Queensland to capture all the Maroon madness in the build-up to Origin II. The final big outside broadcast will be our Grand Final spectacular, an all ages extravaganza in the sensational new ICC Sydney Theatre at Darling Harbour.
Paul Vautin is the father of three and a proud grandfather, as well as being an avid golfer (playing off a four handicap), punter, and tragic KISS fan.
She plays a passable game of netball, touch and badminton, which she mastered while growing up in Jakarta. Outside of work and sport, Erin Molan maintains an interest in fashion, politics and the Indonesian language and affairs.
His quick wit, friendly and outgoing nature and fun attitude have made him a favourite on the show, and his quirky Beau Knows segment is a hit with viewers.
Darryl 'The Big Marn' Brohman
Darryl 'The Big Marn' Brohman is a long-time member of The Footy Show on Channel Nine and his segment 'Small Talk with Big Marn' is one of the weekly highlights. Brohman made his State of Origin debut for Queensland at Lang Park in Brisbane in 1983 and had his jaw broken in a vicious tackle by Les Boyd.
