Star GWS Giants midfielder Josh Kelly has confirmed he is interested in playing for Victoria in the upcoming bushfire relief charity match against the All-Stars.

The representative format returns for the first time since 2008, pitting the league’s best players against each other to raise money for bushfire relief.

The AFL will nominate eight possible players for selection from each club, with a maximum of three players from each club will be eligible for selection.

The 24-year-old – who grew in Melbourne’s south-east – say it’s a game and cause he wanted to be involved in.

“It’s definitely something I was to put my hand up for,” he said on SEN Breakfast.

“The opportunity to play for Victoria but more so, the occasion of it and being able to help out as footballers for the devastating bushfires and especially having parts of NSW (affected), the ability to be able to be able to give back and help those affected is something all players want to do.

“There’s no doubt I’d love to put my hand up, but we’ll see how we go.”

The much-anticipated match will take place at Marvel Stadium on February 28.
