Nine director of sport Tom Malone is planning to make some tweaks to the rugby league version of the "Footy Show", after some aspects of the first program for 2018 were seen as somewhat underwhelming by viewers. The show underwent a number of changes during the off-season, with Erin Molan replacing Paul Vautin as host and former executive producer Glenn Pallister no longer with the show. Meanwhile, ratings for Nine’s first rugby league match of the season, which saw St George Illawarra Dragons beat the Brisbane Broncos 34-12, were down 5.6 per cent year-on-year.
