A star studded alumni of AFL greats including Glenn Archer, Anthony Koutoufides, Brendan Fevola, Michael O’Loughlin, Dermott Brereton and newly retired ‘rookies’ Jeff Farmer, Justin Koschitzke, Andrew Embley and Daniel Kerr will pull on the boots for another chance at footy glory when they line up for the State-of-Origin showdown between Victoria and the All Stars in the annual EJ Whitten Legends Game at Etihad Stadium on Tuesday 1 July.

Amongst the honour roll of 50 former AFL greats is Scotty West, Ben Graham, Campbell Brown, David Rodan and Brent Guerra, who are lining up for the Vics and feeling the pressure to make it four wins on the trot for the Big V.
