After two and a half long months of COVID-19 enforced isolation, Triple M’s #1* AFL call team will emerge from their quarantined dwellings to bring footy-starved listeners closer to the action than ever before.
Kicking off with the massive clash between Collingwood and Richmond this Thursday night at the Triple-MCG, all of Triple M Footy’s biggest names will be back for a weekend packed with traditional blockbusters.
Brian Taylor, Wayne Carey, Chris Judd, Luke Darcy, Billy Brownless, Nathan Brown, Dale Thomas, Mark Ricciuto, Simon Black, Bernie Vince, Andrew Embley, Leigh Montagna and Damian Barrett are just a few of the names that headline the greatest panel of experts ever assembled on a football broadcast, which of course would not be possible without the most entertaining call team on the airwaves including James Brayshaw, Mark Howard, Barry Denner, Chris Dittmar and recently inducted Australian Football Hall of Famer, Dennis Cometti.
The Friday Huddle, Saturday Rub and Sunday Rub will all be back on-air to bring you the unique footy coverage and humour that only Triple M can deliver each and every week.
Triple M Head of Sports Content, Ewan Giles, said: “If a week is a long time in footy; 70 odd days is an eternity! Our entire call team can’t wait to get back to the footy and call the game we all love.”
