  • Bio :

    Ross Harries is a highly regarded and popular presenter; an experienced broadcast journalist, and an in-demand event host. It was his first trip to the National Stadium in Cardiff, where he was overwhelmed by the noise, the fervour, and the drama, that cemented his passion. Many years later, when his boyhood dreams of being capped for his country had long since evaporated, he forged a career talking about the sport he loves.

    Ross has been the face of Welsh rugby for the best part of a decade, having presented Scrum V Live, Scrum V Sunday, and the Scrum V International Specials since 2011. Since going freelance, he continues to present the International Specials and is part of BBC Network's Six Nations and Autumn International coverage as both presenter and pitch-side reporter.

Ross Harries is a highly regarded and popular presenter; an experienced broadcast journalist, and an in-demand event host. It was his first trip to the National Stadium in Cardiff, where he was overwhelmed by the noise, the fervour, and the drama, that cemented his passion. Many years later, when his boyhood dreams of being capped for his country had long since evaporated, he forged a career talking about the sport he loves.

Ross has been the face of Welsh rugby for the best part of a decade, having presented Scrum V Live, Scrum V Sunday, and the Scrum V International Specials since 2011. Since going freelance, he continues to present the International Specials, and is part of BBC Network's Six Nations and Autumn International coverage as both presenter and pitch-side reporter.

His break on Scrum V came when he was driving to St Davids in West Wales to cover the opening of an art gallery. While he was en route, the Scrum V producer called to ask if he could step in to present the programme that evening. Once Ross had agreed, he was informed that the programme was in Glasgow, and that the BBC were only able to fly him to Edinburgh. One frantic car journey, a flight, and a taxi ride later, Ross arrived in Glasgow in the nick of time to make his live debut having barely glanced at the running order. It was a baptism of fire that served him well when the permanent job came up a few months later.

Ross is currently the lead anchor of Premier Sports' exclusive coverage of the Guinness Pro14, and a regular pitch-side presence on BT Sport's European Champions Cup coverage.

Ross began his broadcasting career as reporter and newsreader with BBC Radio Wales, before switching to television, where he worked as West Wales correspondent while presenting the nightly news programme, Wales Today.

Ross has covered two Lions tours for the BBC, in Australia and New Zealand, as well as Wales' tour to New Zealand in 2016. As well as presenting and reporting, Ross is an accomplished commentator, and commentated on all three tests of the 2016 tour.

Radio continues to be a passion of Ross's. He was host of the Scrum V radio show for several years, and continues to be a regular contributor to BBC radio output. He recently wrote and narrated a documentary on JPR Williams for BBC Wales.

Ross is an accomplished writer, and published author, having ghost-written Adam Jones' autobiography, Bomb in 2015, which was nominated for a Cross Sports Book award. His latest book, Behind The Dragon, was released in June to rave reviews.

An experienced and popular corporate host, Ross regularly hosts a large number of award presentations, corporate dinners and brand events. He is available to talk about his wealth of experiences in an ever-changing world of broadcasting, his unlikely entry into rugby journalism, and his adventures travelling the world following the sport he loves. He can speak of the challenges of live broadcasting as well as the potential pitfalls, and has a ready supply of rugby anecdotes involving some of the game's best loved personalities."

In his spare time Ross still dreams of being a rock star having spent much of his teens and early twenties playing guitar in various bands.
