MECWACARE MATCH OF THE DAY ON RSN CARNIVAL
The William Buck Premier opening round was an all-time classic between Old Scotch and University Blues that went down to the wire. If that’s a pre-cursor on what’s to come then we are in for one helluva season.
This Saturday we head out to Toorak Park where Old Xaverians will play host to Old Brighton. Our pre-season predictions have these 2 sides as the frontrunners in 2022 and we get the earliest sniff of what could be a Grand Final preview with both sides coming off convincing wins in Round 1.
The coverage begins on RSN Carnival from 12pm with a replay of the VAFA Podcast, For the Love of the Game with Brian Waldron and Tommy Flanagan before the live pre-game show “The Saturday Warm-Up” at 1pm with Joe Pignataro and Josh Heriot
Hear from both coaches in the build up to the first bounce, Old Xaverians coach James Byrne at 1.15pm and Old Brighton’s Greg Hutchison at 1.35pm before the best call of all the action.
Joe Pignataro and Liam Ellison will be calling all the action from 2pm.
