Mick Molloy keen to welcome Sam Newman

"He would be a bloody good guest," says Front Bar host.

Front Bar host Mick Molloy would love to have Sam Newman as a guest if The Footy Show does not return.

“If that show wasn’t to go ahead that would be a massive blow for Melbourne TV — a sea change,” he told the Herald Sun.

“I really like those guys and I like Sam and what he said was quite moving.

“But you know what in a selfish way I thought ‘if that doesn’t happen he would be a bloody good guest for The Front Bar’.

“Whatever happens, I wish them all the luck.”

Molloy is also considering a cricket version of The Front Bar with Andy Maher and Sam Pang over summer. The team previously fronted Winter Olympics and Commonwealth Games editions for Seven.

  1. That’s a silly idea of having Newman on the Front Bar as a guest… If people wanted to watch him, they would of watched the Footy Show… Maybe Mick is just being humble…

    I like the idea of a Cricket Front Bar…

  2. It’s funny a while ago I was thinking Billy Brownless would be a good guest on The Front Bar if he doesn’t continue on The Footy Show. Loves a laugh and a froffie and plenty of material from his playing days.
