Anthony Mundine takes on SAS Australia

Twelve new celebrity recruits will attempt to pass selection on SAS Australia’s gruelling Middle Eastern desert course when the hit series returns to Channel 7 and 7plus in October. 

Former three-time rugby league premiership player and three-time boxing world champion Anthony Mundine will face his toughest test yet when he takes on the unforgiving desert course.

Anthony admits he isn’t “afraid of too much” and is determined to dominate the course and pass selection.

“Yeah, you’re going to fail. But it’s not about the setback. It’s about the comeback. If I set out to do something, I’m going to do it. Period,” says Anthony.  

For the first time on SAS Australia, the new celebrity recruits will travel offshore to a secret base in the Middle East where they will eat, sleep and train together in punishingly hot and arid conditions, with no allowances or exceptions made for their celebrity status or gender.
