Fred Lang - MC

Tall, bald and ready to make you laugh on this star-studded occasion of Sporting Legends Night Out. Be it performing for the PM or Troops in Afghanistan, comedian MC Fred Lang is known to push, prod and provoke an audience in a style that is uniquely his.  

Sir Vivian Richards

The most explosive batsman of his time and the greatest entertainer the game has possibly ever seen. You knew when King Viv was coming, it was calculated, menacing and magnificent theatre, which had fans crowding around TV sets from the moment he came out to bat. 

Tom Raudonikis

Tough, tenacious, "Tom Terrific" never took a backwards step on the football field. The dynamic halfback terrorised his opponents with his resolute competitiveness. Whether playing in club games, Tests, World Cups or for his State, Tom's passion and guts always inspired his mates and made him the legend he is today. 

Arthur Beetson

Quite literally a living legend, Arthur's story is one to be savoured by anyone who has ever followed the game. "Big Artie" is a rugby league immortal who is a serious contender for the most enthralling rugby stories; from the blood-and-thunder days of the 1960s, the glamorous Easts team of the 70s to the first decade of the Origin and the Roosters' rise back to the top. 

Rodney Hogg

One of Australia's great fast bowlers with an unbelievable Ashes record, Sir Rodney is a quirky character with fascinating stories and real-life experiences. Whether you're a cricket fan or not, everyone appreciates Hoggie's anecdotes and tremendous sense of humour and humility. 

Malcolm Johnston

One of the most popular and entertaining jockeys around, Miracle and his legendary horse Kingston Town, barnstormed the racing scene with 25 victories. He considers himself to be the court jester of the jockey's room and has become renowned for his funny one-liners. 

Joe Bugner

The international heavyweight boxing champion who went the distance twice with the great Muhammad Ali, has led a colourful life that is bound to knock you out. Aussie Joe, the undefeated World Champion has appeared in 24 movies around the world and worked as a TV commentator and presenter. 

John Connolly

Rugby Union coach and former coach of the Wallabies, John is one of Australia's most successful coaches. There isn't a team that John has coached that has not experienced a winning streak. His clever wit is captivating and you're guaranteed to wake up the next morning still giggling at a joke you just got!

Mal Meninga

Remembered by all Australians for his formidable power, pace, handling and deadly accuracy and consistency with the boot. Mal has scored a place in the Rugby League Hall of Fame and has led Queensland to victory in 4 consecutive State of Origin series. 

Robert DiPierdomenico

One of football's great characters, Robert 'Dipper' DiPierdomenico patrolled the wings with flair and ferocity. He was born to play Grand Finals, making his mark in '78 as best on ground against North Melbourne and playing out a match against Geelong with a punctured lung and broken ribs in '89. Entertaining and motivational, Dipper has stories as wild as his curly hair and handlebar moustache.
