Cousins set to announce his preferred AFL club
Fallen star Ben Cousins will reveal on grand final morning where he wants to resume his AFL playing career.
Channel Seven have announced the Brownlow Medallist and former West Coast captain will appear on their pre-game show.
Cousins, who is fighting drug addiction, is serving an AFL ban for bringing the game into disrepute and has missed a whole season.
Nominating his club of choice will only be the first step in his comeback, because Cousins also has to convince the league he is ready to play again.
“Cousins will appear on a panel … and will answer the question the football world has been awaiting for almost 12 months,” the Seven network said in a statement.
“Cousins is also expected to outline whether he thinks he could still match it with the best in the AFL.”
There has been plenty of media speculation linking Cousins to Collingwood.
Cousins appeared at Monday night’s Brownlow Medal count with his mother, but declined to comment to reporters about his future.
The 238-game player, who won the 2005 Brownlow, has trained with local Perth clubs in the last few weeks as part of his build-up to a possible comeback.
Cousins played in the 2005 grand final with West Coast and then was part of their `06 premiership team.© AAP 2013
