Rugby commentator Brent Pope returns for the 6 Nations

Radio Nova has signed rugby commentator Brent Pope as part of a new weekly Six Nations show.

The rugby legend will present ‘The 6 At 6′ – a mix of banter, analysis and music on Nova Drive with Pat Courtenay each week for the duration of the tournament, in association with Honda.

The multi-platform sponsorship deal will include radio and digital sponsorship, social media, weekend takeovers and experiential activity and was brokered between Radio Nova and Havas Media.

Brent Pope, hailing from New Zealand, is well-known for his rugby analysis on RTÉ television over almost 20 years. He famously came to Ireland ‘for three months’ 25 years ago and is now one of Ireland’s best-known TV rugby pundits.

“I listen to NOVA and love it as a radio station. It will be great to be able to mix my two great loves, rugby and music on one radio station. Join us for all the latest banter on the 6 Nations as well as some stonking great tunes every Thursday from 6pm”, said Pope.

The show runs from next Thursday, 31st January until March 14th on Radio Nova.
