Footy Frontline Podcast Ep 14: Rising Star Controversy & Round 13 AFL Preview

06 June, 2024

In the latest episode of the Footy Frontline Podcast, hosts Nick D’Urbano and AAP journalist Oliver Caffrey dive into the hot topics from Round 12 and provide an in-depth preview of Round 13 in the AFL.

Rising Star Controversy The AFL world was rocked by the news that both Harley Reid and Sam Darcy, the leading contenders for the Rising Star award, are now ineligible due to suspensions. Reid’s tackle on Darcy Wilson and Darcy’s bump on Braden Maynard have led to their disqualification, sparking debate on whether the eligibility rules need to be re-evaluated. The hosts discuss the implications of these suspensions and speculate on who might now emerge as the frontrunner for the Rising Star award.


Fremantle’s Stunning Victory Fremantle’s dominant 94-point win over Melbourne in Alice Springs has turned heads. The Dockers’ midfield outclassed Melbourne’s, leading to questions about the Demons’ premiership credentials. Nick and Oliver analyze what this result means for both teams and how it impacts their respective seasons moving forward.

  • Adelaide vs. Richmond: With Dustin Martin rested, can the Tigers overcome the Crows at Adelaide Oval?
