October 1, 2015

crows-walkerAFL stars past and present will kick off Saturday’s AFL Grand Final festivities with the Fox Footy Longest Kick Competition, with Adelaide’s Taylor ‘Tex’ Walker the $3.00 favourite with online bookmaker Sportsbet.

Footy fan’s will be shouting ‘Fevalenko You Beauty’ if Brendan Fevola, who returns from a successful stint in the bush, can conquer the Yarra, with the former AFL bad-boy paying $7.00.

Retired Essendon 400-game champ Dustin Fletcher, a 70-plus metre barrel specialist, is excellent value at $7.00, with his ‘90s nemesis Saverio ‘The Big Savaloy’ Rocca paying $9.00.

Travis Cloke $4.50, Bernie Vince $7.00 and Tom Hawkins $8.00 are the best priced of the of the current day AFL stars, with Matthew Pavlich and Drew Petrie paying a generous $34.00.

“Fevalenko, The Big Savaloy, Tomahawk and Fletch can all unload a monster barrel on their day but we think the Big Texan is best placed to tame the Yarra this Saturday,” said’s Ben Bulmer.
