Before The Bounce

With the success of FOX SPORTS current AFL magazine shows, AFL Winners, On the Couch, AFL Teams and Before the Bounce FOX SPORTS is launching two new magazine shows, AFL Insider and AFL 360 extending its AFL coverage to seven days a week.

AFL Insider will launch tomorrow night at 7.30pm AEST on FOX SPORTS 1HD and FOX SPORTS 1 and will be hosted by FOX SPORTS commentators and former AFL stars Jason Dunstall and Alastair Lynch.

The 60-minute show will expose the inner workings of elite AFL clubs and provide insight into the innovations that clubs are introducing to give themselves the advantage over their competition.

Joining Jason and Alastair as a permanent guest on the show will be North Melbourne coach, Brad Scott, to assist with unfolding tactics being used both on and off the field.

From Wednesday July 7 at 7.30pm AEST on FOX SPORTS 1HD and FOX SPORTS 1, AFL 360 will bring footy fans a look at every angle of the week’s biggest issues in AFL.

The show will be led by respected journalist and Before the Bounce panellist Gerard Whateley alongside hard-hitting AFL journalist Mark Robinson from the Herald Sun.

Gerard will be the ‘voice of reason’ and Mark the ‘provocateur’ as they debate the big issues in AFL each week whether they are on field or in your club’s boardroom.

With the introduction of two new programs, footy will feature every night of the working week throughout the AFL season on top of the live weekend action.”
