Alex Payne is the leading rugby presenter on Sky Sports. He was one of the youngest presenters on the channel when he first started. He is now the main presenter of Sky’s coverage of English and European Rugby and hosts coverage of England’s internationals, Heineken cup & tri nations.
Alex began his television career as a presenter on the rugby club before traveling to New Zealand as the reporter on the 2005 British and Irish lions tour presented Sky Sports news as well as poker for sky Sports and Fox, including the FullTiltPoker.com million dollar cash fame and Shane Warne’s poker ashes.
Away from rugby, he has presented Sky’s live tennis, including the US Open final, and spent five years on Sky Sports News. He has also hosted a number of live poker events, including the Full Tilt Poker Million, Ladbrokes Poker Million and Shane Warne’s Poker Ashes.
Alex also hosts charity days, sporting quizzes, product launches testimonial dinners and conducts corporate hospitality within the sporting and non-sporting world. He is a very endearing presenter, very young and talented with a great sense of humor. He isn’t afraid to ask tough questions either.
