Virginia's passion for sport coupled with her presenting background makes her the ideal candidate for hosting some of Australia's premier sporting events.
In recent years, Virginia has been employed as an On-Field and Corporate MC with the Brisbane Broncos (2006-07), St George Illawarra Dragons (2008-09) and Canberra Raiders (2004-05). In these roles, Virginia could effortlessly interact with crowds of up to 50,000 people, interviewing players, coaching staff and other well-known sporting personalities. For each of those clubs she was also required to MC smaller pre and post-match functions for the Club Chairman, sponsors and other VIPs and dignitaries.
More recently, Virginia has been employed by the Hobart Hurricanes as an On-Field MC for the Twenty20 Big Bash League matches at Bellerive Oval. When she isn't hosting the matches, Virginia enjoys sitting on the hill at Bellerive watching cricketer husband Ed Cowan in his role as an opening batsman for the Australian and Tasmanian Tigers cricket teams.
