Footy fans have piled into Mark Seymour after the Hunters & Collectors star’s woeful performance at the AFL Grand FInal.

Seymour, 67, took centre stage during the half time interval following an electric two quarters of action between Collingwood and Brisbane at the MCG on Saturday afternoon.

But the Aussie music legend – alongside Kate Miller-Heidke – was unable to match the energy of the 36 players on the footy field with what fans described as a lifeless performance of Holy Grail, among other hits. 

‘One of the worst half time shows of all time,’ one fan posted on Twitter, now known as X. ‘Wtf was Mark Seymour doing.’

Another said: ‘Why is this the worst version in history of the Holy Grail? It’s Mark Seymour, it should be smoking. Jesus someone pull the plug.’

Some fans likened the performance to that of a pub singer.

‘Mark Seymour playing a chilled acoustic beer garden set in the middle of the MCG is not Grand Final worthy,’ a third fan said.

Another added: ‘I love Mark Seymour but feels like I’m in a pub having a nice arvo sesh and a bloke with a guitar comes out and starts singing covers, killing the vibe.’ 

‘Am a huge Kate Miller-Heidke fan… and absolutely love Mark Seymour & Hunters… but this is a bit flat after the two quarters we’ve just seen. Nice harmonies, but not a patch on the footy.’
