Found this on the sky sport Facebook page (FYI sorry if the formatting is wrong I copy and pasted it)


MARVELLOUS!

BREAKING: John Campbell to join SKY Sport NZ for All Blacks match in Samoa. 

The All Blacks’ match against Samoa next month will have a very special guest with TV presenter John Campbell joining SKY Sport’s presentation team for the historic game in Apia.

SKY Sport is thrilled to welcome one of New Zealand’s most popular news presenters to SKY’s rugby stable for the one-off test. The former Campbell Live host is a rugby fanatic and was the driving force behind a vocal campaign to get the All Blacks to play their first-ever match in Samoa. 

Campbell will be joined by SKY’s rugby presenters and commentators Grant Nisbett, Justin Marshall, Jeff Wilson and Ken Laban.

The match is the first international of the year for the All Blacks, with the Rugby Championship and Rugby World Cup to follow LIVE on SKY Sport. 

All Blacks v Samoa
Wednesday 8 July | 1.15pm LIVE on SKY Sport 1

But we are talking about Rugby commentary here. I was standing a couple of people down from him at my boys footy game a couple of weeks ago. Crikey, he just doesn't stop ranting - and everyone has to hear it.

I imagine it's just a one-off due to the fact John and the Campbell Live team and viewers were instrumental in getting the game played in the first place.

I hope you're right :) I guess for him to take over someone has to go ... I don't care for normal rugby matches even super 15 (not play offs please) - I don't watch them !- but certainly would like to hear familiar voices for the test series and the RWC
