Foxtel has announced its guest stars for the second season of The Recruit will include Shane Warne, Cathy Freeman, Stephanie Rice and Ian Thorpe.
Also set to appear in the McGuire Media production are Lauryn Eagle, Brendan Fevola, Anthony Koutoufides, Dustin Fletcher, Jason Akermanis, Corey Enright, Brent Harvey, Barry Hall, Jonathan Brown, Paul Licuria, Dermott Brereton and Kevin Sheedy.
Host Ryan “Fitzy” Fitzgerald will also make an appearance, tipped to host the Live finale, plus season one Head Coach Michael Voss.
The Recruit is a 10-part series that follows a group of “Recruits” who live and play together as a team, while at the same time competing against each other for a life-changing prize – a guaranteed place on an AFL list.
Leading the Recruits as Head Coach each week is former AFL player and record-breaking coach Mick Malthouse. He is joined by former Hawthorn champion and FOX Footy commentator Ben Dixon as Assistant Coach, Port Adelaide’s world class fitness guru Darren Burgess as High Performance Coach; and accomplished sports administrator Leigh Russell as Mind Coach.
Together, these sporting heavyweights, along with the impressive line-up of guest stars, put the Recruits through their paces, both physically and mentally, in order to help them reach their full potential and become AFL ready.
The series will culminate in a live finale in which a special NAB AFL Draft will be held, with the winner signing a contract with one AFL club.
Wednesday, July 20 at 8.30pm on FOX8.
