Melbourne Community Cup Reveals 2017 Teams

With the 24th annual Melbourne Reclink Community Cup just weeks away the team players for the Rockdogs and Megahertz have been revealed.

Co-Captains for The Megahertz are RRR’s ‘Get Down’ presenters Chris Gill and PBS breakfast presenter Beth Atkinson-Quinton. “It’s an honour to be representing Triple R and the Megahertz as co-captain alongside Beth AQ, and we’re all excited to be playing at Vic Park for the first time. Finally a home game for the MEGAZ!! A privilege to be raising funds for a great charity – Reclink do so much for those with so little,” Chris Gill said in a statement.

Dan Sultan is back to coach The Rockdogs with Jason Evans. My Dynamite’s Nick Cooper is captaining The Rockdogs with vice co-captains Glenn Maynard and Kate Boston-Smith.

Boston Smith said, “Reclink Community Cup is the best way to warm a wintery Sunday. It’s like an urban festival with footy, bands, babies, kids, DOGS and a whole bunch of your mates who just happen to make up this awesome community and it’s all for a great charity supporting disadvantaged Australians. What could be better?!”

Spiderbait’s Kram and Blake Scott of The Peep Temple will play for The rockdosgs with Benny Walker, Ash Naylor, Dave Larkin, Johnny Rock, Mikey Cahill and Keats Mulligen on the field again, plus newcomers Bec Goring, Ruby Koomen, Rose Watson, and Helena Holmes making their debut.

Funds raised through the Reclink Community Cups support Reclink Australia’s work with disadvantaged communities across Australia. From its inception back in 1993, the Melbourne event now rallies more than 10,000 avid followers who collectively raise over $100,000 every year for the cause.
