Team Europe 4, Team Internationals 3, Team USA 0.

Conventional wisdom is that Team USA has its work cut out at the inaugural Collins Cup at the end of August, and it failed to make the scoreboard when the full broadcast presentation team was announced for the showpiece event.

The team, which will support lead anchor Phil Liggett, includes well-known presenters Alex Payne and Charlie Webster with Belinda Granger, Barrie Shepley, Greg Bennett and Vicky Holland providing on-the-ground expert insight.

Payne has spent more than 17 years with Sky Sports. As well as presenting live tennis and poker, for the last decade he has been the lead Rugby Union presenter, fronting over one hundred internationals and four Lions tours.

Webster is an experienced live broadcaster, having worked for major global TV networks, events and brands including Wimbledon, the London Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Champions League and Six Nations Rugby.

Granger is a former professional triathlete with over 30 years experience in the sport, while Shepley has been at the forefront of triathlon for nearly 40 years.

Bennett is a podcast host, speaker, corporate trainer, announcer, and entrepreneur. He is a retired professional Olympic triathlete.

Holland has raced short-course triathlon for more than 15 years, winning five World Series events during that time with many more podiums. She has three Commonwealth medals, a European Silver medal, a Bronze medal from the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and was the World Triathlon World Champion in 2018.
