One of them will comprise part of the AFL’s special NAB AFL Draft with a guaranteed contract with one AFL club.
Club recruiters will each vote on the final three on a 3-2-1 basis. Once the winner is announced, all 18 clubs will have the option to nominate him as a draft selection or to pass. If more than one club nominates to draft the Recruit, the winner will get to pick the club of his choice.
“The final three have all displayed qualities to an AFL standard. They are very consistent in performance, are resilient and have adequate work ethic to take their game to another level within an AFL system,” said Head Coach, Michael Voss.
“The Recruit has opened up another pathway into the AFL. This is exciting and returns hope to players who become lost in our system for a multitude of reasons. After seeing the talent in action I remain extremely confident that while we will find our winner, we could see up to three players drafted as a result of this show,” he said.
The AFL Reality show has been a consistent performer for Foxtel, regularly topping Wednesday night STV ratings.
During the live final, host ‘Fitzy’ and ‘Vossy’ will be joined by members of the Executive Team; Assistant Coach Ben Dixon, High Performance Coach Darren Burgess and Psychology Coach Leigh Russell; the previously delisted Recruits as well as Club Executives from each of the 18 AFL teams.
