Wairangi Koopu is a former professional rugby league footballer who played 159 times for the Warriors, appeared in the 2002 NRL Grand Final, was named the club's player of the year in 2004, played for the Kiwis in 2004 and 5, and spent a season at Melbourne Storm at the end of his career.  

He primarily played in the second-row, and as a centre. He is now a freelance broadcaster having started in television as a presenter and field director for the Maori Television show 'Code'.  

He’s been a league commentator for Maori TV and Sky and you’ll have seen him on The Crowd Goes Wild or listened to him on breakfast music radio.  

Now, Wairangi Koopu is on the card for this year’s Fight For Life on July 21 raising funds for Mike King’s I Am Hope. 

He joined Simon Barnett and Tyler Adams (in for James Daniels) for this week's Six And A Song.
