Melbourne Storm’s Round One blockbuster against the Dragons at Olympic Park on Friday, March 13th has taken on significantly greater meaning with both teams to battle it out for the inaugural Emergency Services Cup.
The Cup will now be contested between the two teams each time they meet in recognition of all Emergency Services personnel who give their services to the communities of both Victoria and New South Wales.
To add to the occasion, international music act Chris Isaak will entertain the crowd at half-time by performing two songs, while local act Anthony Callea will perform two of his songs before the game, as well as sing the Australia national anthem.
Gates open at 5.00pm with the under-20’s kicking-off their 2009 campaign at 5.35pm. The NRL clash will kick-off at 7.35pm.
Tickets for the game can be purchased through Ticketek on 132 849, or through www.ticketek.com.au.
Last Friday at the launch of Melbourne's Grand Hyatt redevelopment in Collins St, Anthony was joined by his long-time idol Tina Arena to perform an impromptu performance of 'The Prayer'. The crowd were blown away by their amazing duet. Enjoy these photos of the performance.
