George Rose joins NITV league program Over the Black Dot

LAST season George Rose made his presence felt each time he pulled on an Oberon Tigers jumper, but in 2017 the prop with a cult following has found a different role.

The Indigenous All-Star who won an NRL premiership with Manly is part of the NITV’s team for new rugby league show Over the Black Dot.

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 features a light-hearted segment called Rolling with Rose, where the former Oberon Tiger and Bathurst Penguins talent will catch up with players while dropping in on them at training. His segment this week involved Newcastle Knights players Nathan Ross, Ken Sio and Pete Mata’utia.

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.
