CHRIS 'BUDDAH' HANDY

BASED: SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

 

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 have 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 “...like 15 mongrel dogs outside a butcher’s shop...”, his quips are patriotic and passionate and a much loved part of rugby’s texture.

A former Gregory Terrace student in Brisbane, Handy graduated through the Queensland Rugby Union ranks when the now famous maroon jersey was beginning to earn respect. He played some 54 games for his State as Queensland rose from virtual obscurity to world famous rugby provincial status that it now enjoys.

He went on to earn his Wallaby colours in the late seventies as a 'tough as teak' prop. He joined a rather select band of Wallabies to have lifted the Bledisloe Cup on two occasions after victories against arch rivals the New Zealand all Blacks.

His post-Wallaby resume is the envy of every enthusiast, having commentated the televised coverage of every World Cup (1987 – 2003), as well as the Super 10 and 12 Tournaments.

Buddha’s capabilities are not limited to the world of rugby commentary. He is in constant demand as a guest speaker, both in the rugby and corporate arena, captivating his audience with endless stories, sharp wit and his unique style. Buddha is also a regular contributor to rugby periodicals and donates his time to a variety of worthy charities.

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, “Go You Good Thing!”
