The former RTÉ employee announced on Twitter that he will be part of Channel 4's coverage. Former Ireland international, Jamie Heaslip, will work alongside Nugent.

Nugent departed as RTÉ's Head of Sport during the summer after 24 years working at Montrose. Along with being a rugby commentator, he had been Head Of Sport for eight years.
The IRFU announced last month that Channel 4 had won the rights to broadcast Ireland's November Internationals until 2022.
In Ireland, the games will be broadcast on RTÉ. The national broadcaster recently extended its deal to show the November games to 2021.
