NITV premiers its highly anticipated new rugby league show, Over the Black Dot, on Wednesday 12 April at 9.30pm.
The program has an all-Indigenous line-up including host, sports journalist Djuro Sen, rugby league analysts, Indigenous All-Star George Rose and premiership winning rugby league great Owen Craigie, and field reporter, multiple sports star Tanisha Stanton.
Named for the perfect shot between the posts, Over the Black Dot will celebrate all tiers of league with expert analysis on the week in review, game highlights and what to expect from upcoming rounds.
The analytical rugby league program will also feature Tanisha interviewing high-profile players, officials and coaches outside the studio, and a light-hearted segment called Rolling with Rose, where George will catch up with players while dropping in on them at training.
Over the Black Dot's regular line-up will be joined weekly by some of the best players and identities in the game as panel guests, with the series championing Indigenous achievement.
"NITV has a strong history in covering rugby league, from remote 'Island of Origin' in the Torres Strait to the massive Koori Knockouts. With so many Indigenous players in the NRL we can guarantee our new show will deliver exactly what our audiences have asked for in league analysis and discussion," Tanya Orman, Channel Manager for NITV, said.
Head of Sport for NITV, Mark Ella said, "Rugby league plays an important role in Indigenous communities and we are excited to again have a program on NITV which focuses on all levels of the game, for a country who loves the sport".
Over the Black Dot will debut on NITV on Wednesday, 12 April at 9.30pm.
