Fox League 2023 NRL season launch celebrates Dolphins arrival with Harbour stunt

Foxtel & Kayo have every game of every round live, 120 exclusively & Mal Meninga joins Super Saturday

Foxtel and Kayo’s dedicated Rugby League channel Fox League has launched the 2023 NRL season with a stunt on Sydney Harbour, perhaps linked to the arrival of the Dolphins joining the comp.

Helping to celebrate the new season was Fox League’s army of commentators, hosts and analysts. They watched on as a few brave “volunteers” (Braith Anasta and Michael Ennis) were raised above the water, bolted onto jet packs.

It was announced at the media event that Mal Meninga, a Rugby League Immortal, will join Yvonne Sampson and Cooper Cronk on Fox League’s Super Saturday coverage which will see Foxtel and Kayo Sports broadcast every Saturday game live and ad-break free during play.

We’re privileged to have an immortal in Mal Meninga front Super Saturday for us alongside Yvonne Sampson – while the Matty Johns Show and NRL 360 return bigger and better than ever before.”
