Gordon Bray was renowned throughout Australia for more than four decades as the ‘Voice of Rugby’. His name is still synonymous with televised rugby union and his distinctive commentary style remains as much a part of the Australian game as a George Gregan tackle or a David Campese goose-step. Gordon called his first rugby test match on radio for the ABC in Bordeaux in 1976. Since then Bray has called more than 350 test matches. In 1980 he succeeded the legendary Norman May as the ABC’s rugby union commentator on television and called every milestone victory by the Wallabies over the next 40 years, including for the Seven and Ten networks, highlighted by both Rugby World Cup triumphs.
