Veteran AFL commentator Rex Hunt is getting back in the box this weekend, as he calls Saturday night’s clash between Collingwood and St Kilda.

Hunt returns to the commentary box for a one-off call, given it marks his 50th year involved in football.

The 69-year-old made his playing debut for Richmond in 1968, and won two premierships with the Tigers, before moving on to play with Geelong and St Kilda.

His career spanned 11 years, and he played 202 games.

Hunt then made a name for himself behind the microphones, calling over 2000 games and giving fans some of the best calls of some of the biggest moments.

Hunt was renowned for giving players funny nicknames during a call, and was also famous for his rendition of a fat lady singing whenever the game was beyond reach for the losing side.

When speaking about his return to the box, Hunt told 3AW the broadcast on Saturday night would be “a little bit of fun”.
