Returning: The Footy Show (AFL)

Brendan Fevola, Chris Judd and Dane Swan are 'new recruits' for Footy Show's 25th season.

The AFL Footy Show returns on Thursday for its 25th season.

Brendan Fevola, Chris Judd and Dane Swan are ‘new recruits’ joining Eddie McGuire, Rebecca Maddern and Sam Newman plus Billy Brownless and Shane Crawford.

The Footy Show celebrates its 25th birthday when it returns with the biggest stars and all the breaking news from the world of AFL at this Thursday on Nine.

Eddie McGuire, Rebecca Maddern and Sam Newman are gearing up for another huge year, introducing new segments, debating the hottest topics on and off the field, and celebrating the game we all love.

New recruits – three of the AFL’s greatest champions, Brendan Fevola, Chris Judd and Dane Swan – are crashing the party, appearing live together. All three were audience favourites on The Footy Show in their playing days, when they were involved in some of the most memorable moments in its colourful history.

Fev and Juddy will revisit the fallout after that notorious night at the 2009 Brownlow Medal Awards where Fev’s behaviour while filming Street Talk got him traded away from his beloved Carlton to Brisbane.

This week there will also be a special appearance from Brownlow Medallist Dustin Martin as Sam chats to him from behind the wheel of his Lamborghini, stars of the AFLW are in the studio live on International Womens Day, and Bec spends the day with some big-name players and their newborn babies as she prepares for her own impending arrival.

Plus, Billy Brownless and Shane Crawford face off in a no-holds-barred battle testing their skills and street cred.

8:30pm Thursday on Nine.

  1. I will tape it and just fast forward through the crap which probably won’t leave me a lot to watch. Looking forward to the front bar coming back.

    I don’t get why they have gone backwards by bringing fev and swan back. Judd i get and at least he has a brain. But yes swan is funny and a bit different but I don’t think he needs to be there. Get the current players on.

    As for sam well he will just go on one of his rants just so the crowd applauds him. He is part of the reason people have turned off but the one who always survives.

  2. so.. Bec Maddern is joined by Fev, I don’t mind Dane and Juddy.. Fev is just replacing Dave Hughes.. one bogan for another. Not that it matters anyway, haven’t watched since Bec joined, not because of sexism, but because of Geelongism.. I’ll get and spoil the teams somehow, especially my West Coast Eagles.
