Our very own Parramatta Eels legend Luke Burt made his debut of a different kind last Sunday as the Pirtek Eels took on the Gold Coast Titans.

Burty was miked up and handed a Channel 9 microphone to become the sideline commentator for the first time.

He says he wasn't nervous at all and handled it like a seasoned professional.

"Just before my first comment I was nervous - I didn't sound it, of course, but I was," Burty laughed.

"I really enjoyed it, something I'd like to do in the future. Pity I had laryngitis and sounded a bit unco - but next time I should be better!"

"Everyone from Channel Nine was very helpful; I was having a great time on the sideline. Whether it be on TV or radio it's something I'd like to do more of in the future."
