AFL on Seven kicks off LIVE and FREE on Friday Night Football with two in-form teams North Melbourne and Carton doing battle. At half time we go behind the scenes at North Melbourne to find out more about their sport science work that assists their recovery, elite training and performance.
On Saturday Night Footy – Geelong v Collingwood we pay special tribute to Magpie coach Nathan Buckley for his 40th birthday with some very different messages from the players and the club. Cameron Ling recounts a never-before-heard story from last year’s Grand Final. In-form Cat Steven Motlop shows us his guitar and singing skills. Cats defender Harry Taylor hooks up to the lie detector test. Rachael Finch catches up with Corey Enright’s wife Renee. And injured Magpie Luke Ball and suspended Cat Jimmy Bartel preview the big match.
Saturday Arvo Football heads back to the MCG for Melbourne v Fremantle and takes a special look at the wonderful work the Dockers have been doing with various Perth hospitals and their 18th annual Bravery Awards.
Sunday Football has a feature on the art of tagging with Bulldogs hard nut Liam Picken as the Western Bulldogs face off against the Hawks.
