Monday night’s ANZAC Day clash with the Warriors will again carry added significance with the much-coveted Michael Moore Trophy up for grabs.
The silverware is in honour of Michael Moore, Storm’s inaugural Football Manager, who tragically passed away in 2000 after the Club’s seasoning opening game in Auckland.
Ever since games between Storm and the Warriors have been played in his honour.
Michael Moore’s family will present the trophy to the winning captain, while an ANZAC Medal will be awarded to the player who best typifies the ANZAC spirit.
Storm are the current holders of the trophy after reclaiming it with a Round 3 win over the Warriors earlier this season.
Past five results of the Michael Moore Trophy:
Rd 3, 2016 - Melbourne Storm 21 def by New Zealand Warriors 14
Rd 18, 2015 - Melbourne Storm 14 def by New Zealand Warriors 28
