ABOUT RUSSELL - BROADCAST LEAD
What attracted you to working for RLWC2021?
The sports rights market is changing rapidly, given the nature of the tournament RLWC2021 is well placed to capitalise on the changing viewing habits of fans and make a big difference to the sport overall. The opportunity to work with an ambitious, energised team, to showcase a fantastic sport is hugely exciting.
Also, having spent 3 years running a business in Preston I see the huge value the legacy programme can add in the heart of Rugby League communities.
What is your favourite sporting memory?
For our wedding anniversary I took my wife to Paris, which just happened to coincide (who knew?) with the final stage of the Tour De France and Lance Armstrong’s seventh victory. Standing together and cheering him across the line was incredible. Unfortunately history tells a different story. So to replace that I’d say watching Lebron James in a regular season game for Cleveland against Magic, the game wasn’t special but watching an athlete at the top of their game dominate the court was amazing.
