Fox Footy will pay tribute to colleague and friend, Danny Frawley, Wednesday September 18 at 8.30pm in a one-hour special, Danny “Spud” Frawley: A Tribute.
The special will go to air just hours after his funeral, which is being held at St Kilda’s Moorabbin headquarters. The service will start at 3pm and the public will be able to watch a live stream of the private funeral at Moorabbin.
There will be a lap of honour at 5pm.
Instead of flowers, Frawley’s family has requested donations to Beyond Blue.
In the Fox Sports special, 10 of Danny’s closest Fox Footy friends will share their fondest memories of the St Kilda great, including his funniest bits from family-favourite show Bounce and his best commentary moments.
Jason Dunstall, Cameron Mooney, Nick Riewoldt, Damien Fleming, Andrew Gaze, Alastair Lynch, Gerard Whateley, Sharni Layton, Paul Roos and Gerard Healy will remember Danny’s greatest performances on field and on camera, including his popular segments ‘Cut The Crap’ and ‘Yesterday’s Heroes’.
Danny was an original member of Bounce, introducing the revolutionary Golden Fist Award that is now a part of the footy vernacular and has been for more than 350 episodes.
This Wednesday after AFL 360, fans are invited to celebrate the best bits of Danny’s last 13 years at Fox Footy, plus re-live his journey as a player and coach.
Danny “Spud” Frawley: A Tribute airs this Wednesday 18th September at 8.30pm on Fox Footy – channel 504 on Foxtel.
