Channel 7 star Brian Taylor has been criticized by soccer fans for his role in an awkward pre-match interview with Ash Barty and Stephanie Gilmore in preparation for the Grand Finals ‘AFL 2020

Australian tennis champion Barty’s emphatic celebrations and cheering for the Tigers have gone viral this series of finals and even given her the honor of presenting the Prime Minister’s Cup to the Tigers if they win
