Chris
'Buddha' Handy

Rugby legend.

Profile

In Queensland, Chris "Buddha" Handy is almost better known than his nick namesake. Like XXXX and Bundaberg Rum, this irreverent former Wallaby hooker, accountant, publican and media phenomenon is an institution for rugby lovers and for anyone who enjoys a great yarn told by a likable bloke.

Current work

Chris Handy is an ambassador for the Queensland Reds, a rugby commentator and television reporter. He is most famously known for his patriotic and lighthearted commentating quips and his "Go you good thing!" outcry.

In his playing days, as a barrel-chested prop forward Chris "Buddha" Handy played some 54 games for Queensland and was one of the select band of Wallabies to have lifted the Bledisloe Cup on two occasions.

Author:

Chris did a wonderful job, was extremely interactive with our guests and ensured a great time was had by all. I was particularly impressed with Chris' retention of guest names and his commentary on all games. It was a pleasure to work with Chris Handy.

Our function last night with Buddha was fantastic. The audience just loved him. His passion, humour and life learning experiences were inspiring and struck a chord with everyone. Cannot speak highly enough about this great man. We will never forget him.
