After nine weeks of intense training and punishing testing, The Recruit reached an exhilarating climax with contestant Matt Eagles head and shoulders above the competition.
The 199cm South Australian signed a contract with the Brisbane Lions live on stage at a specially arranged NAB AFL Draft. The event involved all 18 clubs at Crown Palms in Melbourne and an audience of almost 1,000 people.
Produced by format owner JAMTV, the special television series was a massive hit and involved a production team in excess of 100 according to JAMTV’s Executive in Charge of Production Luke Tunnecliffe.
“Our expert team left no stone unturned in making this second season a visually attractive and compelling television show,” he said. “The crew worked tirelessly throughout the series and achieved the highest production values and standards.”
