Tonight on Not the Footy Show – 18 Nov 09

Tonight’s show has a family feel about its as we look at two son’s emulating their fathers, and two brothers enjoying sibling rivalry of a far more serious nature.

Plus we urge you to get on your bike for a good cause, and take part in or sponsor someone taking part in the Perth Great Bike Ride this Sunday. Find out how on the show tonight.



Ricki Herbert, has worked wonders as the All Whites coach and has steered the New Zealand team to their second World Cup finals, their first since 1982 when he was a player.

Another sportsman following in his father’s footsteps is Brent Dancer who has been selected for the Kookaburras as they contest the Champion’s Trophy in Melbourne at the end of the month. Brent’s father also steered the Kookaburras to Olympic Gold in Athens in 2004 as national coach.
