The weekly program is hosted by Hamish McLachlan[1] and has regular guests such as Herald Sun journalist Jon Anderson and former players Tom Harley, Leigh Matthews, Matthew Richardson, David Schwarz or Tim Watson.

For the 2012 AFL season, Mark Robinson has been replaced by fellow Herald Sun journalist Jon Anderson and sports physician Peter Larkins has joined the team to provide the latest injury updates.
