Boots N' All
Boots 'N' All is the Sky Sports-televised rugby league, weekly magazine programme, focusing on the Super League, National Leagues and amateur game. Originally focusing on the lighter side of the game, the programme is the foremost rugby league programme on United Kingdom television and is broadcast every week during the regular rugby league season.
An original British television concept, there used to be a version of the show broadcast on Nine Network in Australia, hosted by Andrew Voss and Phil Gould, and had regularly featured chairman of Bye Supporters club Tim Andrews, and Sydney Roosters mascot Brian the Rooster.
This Australian version of the series is now defunct, however returned for one episode in 2011, meaning the Boots 'N' All brand is now solely representative of United Kingdom Rugby League and British Sky broadcasting.
Sky Sports now broadcasts the programme on high-definition television (HD).
The programme is anchored by Eddie Hemmings, Sky Sports regular Super League presenter and commentator, who is usually joined by two studio guests. Paul Cullen, the Widnes Vikings Director Of Rugby, regularly rounds up the tries from the previous weekend's Super League matches. Other guests are usually from Mike Stephenson, Phil Clarke, Terry O'Connor (Widnes Vikings Sporting Director) and Barrie McDermott. Bill Arthur and Angela Powers provide featured reports.
The week's tries, plus player and coaching interviews. Traditionally broadcast on a Wednesday night, the programme was switched to a Thursday to incorporate live matches from the National Leagues during the 2007 season. The programme reverted to a Wednesday the following season and continues to broadcast live at 6pm, with regular repeats during the proceeding 24 hours.
Since 2007, an online version of Boots 'N' All has been available on the Sky Sports website and Sky Anytime every week during the regular Super League season. Presented by either Bill Arthur or Angela Powers, the programme consists solely of a review of the previous weekend's Super League action, with analysis from Terry O'Connor or Barrie McDermott.
