Boots 'N' All is a Sky Sports-televised rugby league, weekly magazine programme, focusing on the Super League, Championship, League 1 and amateur game that ran until the end of 2015. Originally focusing on the lighter side of the game, the programme was the foremost rugby league programme on United Kingdom television and was broadcast every week during the regular rugby league season.


International Syndication

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.


The programme was anchored by Eddie Hemmings, Sky Sports regular Super League presenter and commentator, who was usually joined by two studio guests. They were usually two of: Paul Cullen, Phil Clarke, Terry O'Connor, Barrie McDermott, John Kear, Tony Rea, Jon Wells and Brian Carney.

Bill Arthur, Rod Studd and Angela Powers also provided 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 continued to broadcast live at 6pm, with regular repeats during the proceeding 24 hours.

The show usually featured a round up of the weeks news, followed by a discussion of the news. Highlights from a Championship match and previews of the weeks upcoming television matches were included. Furthermore, interviews with players, coaches and leading figures from the game often featured.


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.

This programme now airs on Sky Sports television under the name of Super League Full Time.
