Peter Sterling is an Australian Rugby Player and Commentator.
He joined the Parramatta Eels in 1978.
He compensated for a lack of size and pace with control and organisational skills that allowed Parramatta's all-star back line of Brett Kenny, Mick Cronin, Steve Ella and Eric Grothe a great deal of ball.
Following the 1982 Kangaroo Tour, Sterling had been highly sought after by English clubs and he went on to play for Hull F.C. in the 1983–84 English season.
1986 saw Sterling almost carry a clean sweep of the major awards – except the Rothmans Medal.
His autobiography, 'Sterlo! The Story of a Champion' was released in 1989.
Peter's sharp intelligence marked him as an astute analyst of the game with the former Eel commentating for the Nine Network after initially starting in the media with Western Sydney radio station 2WS and Channel 10 where he was a sideline commentator for their coverage of the 1987 NSWRL finals.
On 9 August 2021, it was announced that Sterling would be leaving the Nine Network after 27 years.
Peter Sterling's net worth is currently estimated at $8.5 million.
