A weekly wrap that takes us into the temporary clubrooms of the Bodgy Creek Roosters, a [fictional] Australian Rules Football Club somewhere in rural Australia. Former Fringe AFL player Troy Carrington has come back to coach his old club and save them from having to fold or merge. His idea to get funding to employ refugees to rebuild their recently condemned rooms has turned the club around as he entices the new arrivals into pulling on the boots. Based on the characters from comedian Damian Callinan's Melbourne Comedy Festival Barry Award nominated show 'The Merger' this podcast takes you deeper into the minutiae of the club. ['The Merger' is in development to be made into a feature film to be shot in 2017.]
