Seven / 7mate will broadcast the annual EJ Whitten Legends Game from Etihad Stadium next week, to raise funds for men’s health awareness.
Brian Taylor and James Brayshaw will lead the call with host Hamish McLachlan plus Brendan Fevola and Anthony ‘Lehmo’ Lehmann.
A special edition of The Front Bar will be broadcast live from the change rooms following the game.
A collection of AFL greats will return to the field including Seven’s Luke Darcy who is set to captain the All-Stars.
Three-time premiership star Jonathan Brown will lead Victoria with Jimmy Bartel, Jude Bolton and Campbell Brown also pulling the boots on.
Coaching this year’s teams are Seven’s own footy champions, Tim Watson and Wayne Carey. Watson, the Australian Football Hall of Famer and triple premiership star will lead Victoria. And Carey, arguably the greatest player of all time and two-time premiership captain, will coach the All-Stars.
Brian Taylor and James Brayshaw will lead the call with host Hamish McLachlan on top of all the antics from the showcase event. Brendan Fevola will provide expert commentary in his own inimitable style, while Anthony ‘Lehmo’ Lehmann will ride the boundary line taking full advantage of his license to interview players.
And Roaming Brian will be among the mayhem as both teams come together to celebrate the cause.
