ANZAC Days of the past

It is the must-see game of the year for any Melburnian, the traditional ANZAC Day blockbuster between Storm and the Warriors at AAMI Park.

When the Last Post echoes around the walls of a silenced yet jam-packed AAMI Park there really is no better experience during the NRL season.

The Warriors fans typically turn out in their vocal numbers, adding an electric atmosphere to an historic day.

This Monday will mark the seventh occasion these two teams will meet on ANZAC Day. Storm have won on three occasions, the Warriors two, with one famous draw in 2009 that started it all.

In the build up to the next installment of this historic clash we took a look back what has become an enthralling ANZAC Day rivalry.

Round 7, 2009 Storm 14 drew with Warriors 14
The game that started it all. It was also the game Brett Finch made his Storm debut after spending the early part of the season with the Eels.
Steve Turner got Storm on their way in the 12th minute after pouncing on a Cooper Cronk chip kick before Finch made an immediate impact with an assist to Billy Slater.
The Warriors trimmed the margin to four points before half-time as injuries to Kevin Proctor and Anthony Quinn left the home side two men down for the second half.
A Will Chambers try three minutes after the restart helped but from there it was purple backs against the wall.
Vatuvei scored his second and Patrick Ah Van added another before Denan Kemp missed the conversion, leaving the scores level at 14-all.
Both teams traded field goals in the closing stages and in golden point but to no avail as Storm experienced their first draw in the golden point era.

Melbourne ventured to their second home to play host to the Warriors in this year and what a master stroke it proved to be.

Captain Cameron Smith opened the scoring in the 16th minute and was mobbed by teammates. Melbourne continued to charge on, piling on three more tries before the break.
Matt Duffie finished his debut game with two tries as Storm ran out 32-point winners in an emotional day for everyone apart of the purple faithful.
