“HELP”: Christian O’Connell wants your best AFL tips
How is Christian O’Connell going to connect with an AFL obsessed Melbourne?
That’s one of the big questions surrounding Gold FM’s new recruit ahead of his June 4 debut.
During the footy season, it’s almost sacrilegious not to have a team, and on a heritage brand like Gold, it’s considered almost ratings suicide not to reflect Aussies Rules in some way shape or form.
Solution? Send a tweet to the footy-mad masses of Melbourne asking for help in the office footy competition.
AFL FANS! AUSSIE RULES FANS HELP ME! My soon to be new radio home @gold1043 has ‘kindly’ entered me into the new season and the office ‘Footy Tips League’. 9 game predictions a week for a game I’m trying to learn. I CANT do badly in this and be the ‘dumb pom’. HELP

O’Connell will be hopping on a plane for Melbourne in just a few weeks and it’s good to see that he’s trying to get his head around Aussie Rules.
Feel free to use the comments section to offer any advice, tips or team selection. Although, how he could go past Carlton is anyone’s guess……
In the meantime, O’Connell is preparing to say goodbye to the UK with a “Mourning Glory” farewell show (or two) at a theatre in Clapham on May 9.
