STAGE SET FOR A THRILLER

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - News -

JUST who will con­test to­day’s AFL block­buster was still to be de­cided be­fore we went to print, but is grand fi­nal day ever re­ally just about the game?

Last year’s high­light for me was see­ing Rich­mond Tigers spear­head Jack Riewoldt (pic­tured) storm the stage and ab­so­lutely slay along­side rock­ers The Killers dur­ing their post­match show, join­ing in on their big­gest hit

This year’s en­ter­tain­ment bill shows plenty of prom­ise, with the Black Eyed Peas and Jimmy Barnes both ready to rock the MCG. The choice of the Peas (mi­nus Fer­gie) has di­vided fans, but it’s worth re­mem­ber­ing they played the Su­per Bowl back in 2011, so know how to set sports sta­di­ums on fire.

Over on Fox Footy, their line-up will also in­clude one of the pre-game high­lights – with Cyril Ri­oli to com­pete in the Long­est Kick Com­pe­ti­tion (10.30am); mark­ing his re­turn to the footy spot­light, af­ter re­tir­ing mid-sea­son. Oh, and for those tun­ing in just for the game it­self, the bounce is ex­pected at 2.30pm.
