Legends step up for EJ Whitten Game

Carey, Lingy, Fev, Richo and more set to shine for men’s health

A star-studded line-up of former AFL greats will take to AAMI Park Friday week for the EJ Whitten Legends Game.

Wayne Carey will take the coaching reins for the All Stars with Sabrina Frederick in his corner as assistant coach, and Bernie Vince running messages.

Coaching Victoria is Dermott Brereton with Daisy Pearce assistant coaching and Sharni Layton on running duties.

A collection of AFL icons will return to the field including Cameron Ling, Brendan Fevola and Anthony Koutoufides for the ‘Big V’ and Matthew Richardson, Gavin Wanganeen and Mark Ricciuto for the All Stars, as they raise funds for the EJ Whitten Foundation supporting men’s health awareness.

With a gilt-edged midfield boasting Ricciuto, Jason Akermanis, Daniel Kerr, Andrew McLeod and Adam Cooney, the All Stars have the fire power to topple the Vics on their home turf.

But Victoria has master taggers Ling and Ryan Crowley to restrict that imposing on-ball unit, and a three-pronged attack of Fev, Jarrad Waite and Travis Cloke that will stretch the All Star’s defence.

Brian Taylor and James Brayshaw will lead the call, with expert commentary from Tim Watson, and ‘Dipper’ and Gilbert McAdam on the boundary.

Armchair Experts with Brownlow medalist Adam Cooney and AFL Superfan Cameron Luke will follow the match with their unique take on proceedings.
