Chris "Buddha" Handy - few names are more synonymous in the world of Rugby, than this larger than life sporting icon. Despite representing his country in six internationals, it is his deeds & prose in the commentary box that has made him instantly recognisable to rugby fans across the globe.

Whether he is describing a player as having a "...face like a squashed grape..." or our feared enemy, the All Blacks, as being " 15 mongrel dogs outside a butcher's shop...", his quips are patriotic & passionate and a much loved part of rugby's texture.

His resume is the envy of every rugby enthusiast, having covered every World Cup (1987 - 1999), the Super 10 & 12 Tournament.

It would be wrong to limit Buddha's capabilities to the world of rugby commentary. He is in constant demand as a guest speaker, both in the rugby and corporate world, captivating his audience with endless stories, his sharp wit and unique style. He is also the author of "Well I'll Be Rugged" and contributor to many rugby periodicals.

Buddha's wide and varied following is a testament to his affable nature and ability to convey the excitement and emotion of the big game to millions of people. As only he can say it, "Go You Good Thing!"
