AFL greats team up for one-eyed call on Tiger Radio
Richmond Tigers legends Rex Hunt, Dale ‘Flea’ Weightman and Tony ‘TJ’ Jewell will reunite this Saturday to call the Tiger’s AFL preliminary final game on Crocmedia’s Tiger Radio.
The one-eyed trio will deliver an openly biased call of the clash between the Tigers and Greater Western Sydney Giants at the MCG.
“Let’s just say it’s going to be a colourful call… yellow and black colours that is,” Hunt said, who has more than 2000 games worth of commentary experience under his belt.
The match is tipped to attract more than 90,000 people for the second time in as many matches for Richmond as they look to secure a spot in the grand final next week, their first in over 30 years years.
Jewell, the last man to coach the Tigers to a premiership, said die-hard fans are in for a treat this weekend.

“It’s going to be one hell of a night for long-suffering Richmond supporters who’ve had to wait since 1980 for a Premiership flag,” Jewell said.
“I’m excited to be joining Rex and Dale in a true Tiger call of the game and we’ll make no apologies for it being biased and one-eyed.”
Six lucky Tigers’ fans will be given the exclusive opportunity to join the Tiger Radio call team from their commentary box at the MCG by tuning in to 3AW’s Sportsday throughout the week.
