Bulldogs champion Luke Darcy and a host of AFL stars including fan favourite Bob Murphy will come together Friday 8.30pm for a special one hour footy celebration, Bulldogs Road to Glory, as they prepare to break their 62-year premiership drought.

Western Bulldogs club great Tony Liberatore, cult hero Danny Southern, president Peter Gordon and 1960 Brownlow medallist John Schultz will join Darcy to talk about the club’s astonishing Cinderella run to the 2016 AFL Grand Final, the groundswell of support and outpouring of emotion from all fans.

Australian cricket great and Bulldogs tragic Merv Hughes will bring some fun as he talks about his love for Footscray and the proud, working class club he’s followed since childhood.

A special episode of Friday Front Bar will follow as Mick Molloy, Andy Maher and Sam Pang are joined by Dennis Cometti, Neil Balme, Lehmo, Tadgh Kennelly and more.

Earlier in the night on 7mate, classic, award winning AFL documentary, Year of the Dogs, will also take us back to Footscray’s season of 1996. It was an emotional and turbulent year that saw the coach under fire, financial difficulties, serious health issues and the last playing days of their veteran star Tony Liberatore.

Friday’s big day of footy celebration begins on 7mate with a replay of the two Preliminary Finals, while later fans can enjoy an encore of The Final Draw, a compelling look at the 2010 drawn Grand Final, before settling in for the Grand Final Marathon.
