The Dot’s stellar line-up of presenters are back, with senior journalist Jodan Perry, dual international rugby player Timana Tahu, NRL premiership winner George Rose and dual international athlete Bo de la Cruz giving their insights into breaking stories in the league as well as weekly recaps.

Each week, the panel will also be joined by special guest analysts and players to review and preview each round of the NRL. Going beyond NRL analysis, this season will include new segments, featuring NRL legend Dean Widders and the panel’s own Bo de la Cruz.

Taking the Dot out of the studio, Widders will be hitting the road and exploring grass roots league across the country in ‘Who’s Your Uncle’, while de la Cruz will be turning the heat up in ‘The Hot Dot with Bo de la Cruz’.

Viewers can also look forward to guests such as Matty Bowen, Latrell Mitchell, Cliffy Lyons, Josh Addo-Carr, Cody Walker, Andrew Fifita, Ryan James and Ray Thompson, as well as special broadcasts reporting from NRL events in regional areas.

NITV’s Channel Manager, Tanya Orman, said: “There’s nothing better than seeing Over the Black Dot back on NITV in 2020!

“We are a sports mad country, and our community are such big fans of Rugby League. Over The Dot celebrates our Indigenous players and their ongoing achievements in the game.

“This year, our brilliant line-up of hosts is back, as well as a side of comedy with new segments that we can’t wait to share with our audience.”


Over The Black Dot returns Tuesday 17 March at 8.30pm on NITV
