Gold Logie Winner Rove McManus has returned home Melbourne this week to not only watch his beloved Fremantle Dockers in the 2013 AFL Grand Final, but also appear on a few shows.
Rove will join Tommy Little, Meshel Laurie, Tom Gleeson and Dave Thornton live at the desk on Wednesday night at 9.30pm on This Week Live.
Rove said: “I always said I would get myself to the ground if Fremantle ever contested for a flag so it looks like I’m flying from LA to the G this week.”Catching up with the This Week Live team with jet lag will be an interesting experience – I have no idea what will come out of my mouth but I hope it will at least come out in complete sentences.”
Special guests, Myf Warhurst and Tom Ballard, will also drop by the studio.
Before The Game will also welcome Rove to the panel for the live 90-minute Grand Final show on Friday at 8.30pm.
The former number one Fremantle Dockers ticket holder will join Dave Hughes, Mick Molloy, Lehmo, Andrew Maher and Neroli Meadows live in studio, as they analyse the players and match-ups for one of Australia’s biggest sporting events of the year.
Rove has a very long and proud history with the Fremantle Dockers. His cousin, Shaun McManus, is a former co-captain and his family have been involved at all levels of the club throughout its 19 seasons in the AFL.
Rove said: “Doing Before The Game on Grand Final eve will be a nice addition too – mainly because I can take my pre-game anxiety out on Lehmo.”
Don’t miss Rove this week on This Week Live, Tonight at 9.30pm and Before The Game, Friday at 8.30pm, live and exclusive on TEN.
