Four future AFL stars under one roof!?
Go back to where it all began with The Selwood Boys ...
In the Selwood house, there's madness and mayhem every day - and footy, of course! Meet the Selwood boys ... There's the twins, Troy and Adam, pulling pranks and making mischief, then Joel with his sneaky, cheeky antics, and finally little Scott, who just does his best (or make that his worst!) to keep up.
Can Joel finally get off the sidelines and onto the footy field to play with his big brothers? It'll be a battle royale that's bound to involve the whole family!
