The 2021 Toyota AFL Finals Series is upon us and FOX FOOTY will take fans so close to the games, they’ll be able to feel it.
It all begins with a finals edition of AFL 360 every Thursday night throughout the whole series. Three-time premiership Tigers star, Jack Riewoldt will co-host with Gerard Whateley to discuss the latest team selection news and look ahead to each final with expert analysts David King, Leigh Montagna and special guests.
“This is as close a year as it’s ever been really,’’
– Riewoldt said.
“There’s form lines all over the joint for sides to mount their case, anyone can really win it.
“Inside the top four Melbourne and Port Adelaide are the two sides who have got a good a run at it. I think Sydney are a good shot from outside the eight. They remind a little bit of the 2017 premiership side we had with the young kids in there playing their role.”
Come Friday night, the finals kick-off with a blockbuster when two takes on three. Garry Lyon, Jonathan Brown and Nick Riewoldt will set-up the weekend of footy which begins with the qualifying final between Port Adelaide and Geelong live from Adelaide Oval.
From 2pm on Saturday, fans won’t miss a beat with the best commentary team in the AFL – in addition to the above, the FOX FOOTY finals team includes FOX FOOTY’S Jason Dunstall, Dermott Brereton, Eddie McGuire, Jordan Lewis, Sarah Jones, Kelli Underwood, Kath Loughnan, Brad Johnson, Alastair Lynch, Matthew Pavlich, Mark Ricciuto, Nick Dal Santo, Gerard Healy, Cameron Mooney, and fan-favourite – retired footy great Eddie Betts.
“I haven’t really played that many finals but looking forward to seeing who wins knowing there’s different teams in there now,’’
– Betts said.
“It’s exciting to see who wins it and where it’s played. After 17 years of playing it’s a new chapter for myself.”
FOX FOOTY has something for every footy fan during a monster finals series, including AFL 360, On The Couch, Open Mike, The First Crack and family favourite Bounce.
