Continuous Call Team commentator David Morrow OAM has been nominated for the NRL’s Hall of Fame.

The game’s governing body has announced a list of nominees for the newly-created Broadcast and Print Media categories of the Hall of Fame. 

The man affectionately known as ‘Thirsty’ has been nominated alongside Frank Hyde, Ray Warren, Rex Mossop and George Lovejoy.

Watch his emotional response to the nomination

David’s career has spanned almost five decades, including the coverage of eight Olympic Games, six Commonwealth Games, cricket, rugby union, soccer, horse racing and general broadcasting.

His passion, however, has always been rugby league – covering the game on radio and television for 30 years; and with the Macquarie Radio Network since 2015.

In 2018, Thirsty furthered his commitment to sport and radio, joining Macquarie Sports Radio as co-host of Mornings alongside Mathew Thompson.

Channel 9 NRL commentator Ray ‘Rabbs’ Warren is also nominated and joined the show, to discuss the honour.
