Season 10 of the Marngrook Footy Show begins this week on NITV, with its own take on the Indigenous contribution to AFL.
Hosts Grant Hansen, Gilbert McAdam, and Chris Johnson are joined by Leila Gurruwiwi and Shelley Ware.
Now in its tenth season, every Thursday night, the Marngrook team discusses all the burning AFL issues like only they can – will Hawthorn make it a historic 4peat? Will Buddy bounce back to form after withdrawing from the 2015 Finals Series? Will Gilly’s beloved Saints make the 8?
Opening the series, Western Bulldogs player Lauren Arnell talks about the exciting growth of the women’s competition and her work helping to set up a women’s team at Carlton Football Club for the 2017 season. In the second round (Thursday 31 March, 7.30pm), Essendon’s David Zaharakis, Hawthorn’s Sam Mitchell and Western Bulldogs’ Marcus Bontempelli are in the studio to chat about all the action from the first week’s clashes.
Alongside the footy, each week, Marngrook features some great live music – showcasing some of Australia’s best emerging talent and music legends.
Marngrook is a footy show with a difference that celebrates and embraces Australia’s diverse multicultural society and aims to be accessible and enjoyed by a wide audience. The series recognises the huge contribution made by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders throughout the game’s history and also the significant representation of Indigenous players in the present day.
Thursday 24 March, 7.30pm on NITV.
