Kevin Proctor knows as well as anyone how vocal Kiwi rugby league fans can be.

AAMI Park always takes on a different feel when the Warriors come to town and Monday night’s ANZAC Day clash will be no exception.

One of the big reasons why the Storm-Warriors ANZAC Day game has become such a must-see event is the unique atmosphere created by the vocal fans of each team.

“It is like the Warriors have a second home here, they’ve got that many supporters here but I’m sure Melbourne Storm supporters will come out and make that atmosphere unreal,” Kevin Proctor said.

“It is a massive honour to play in a big game like this, it means so much to both clubs and both countries, it is a really special occasion.

“When you listen to the national anthems before the game it gives you goose bumps before kick-off.

“They are kind of like our bogey team, it is always a tough battle against them and always a close game. I’m expecting the same this weekend.”

The Warriors received a significant boost to their preparations with experienced winger Manu Vatuvei returning to the side after a two-week absence.

Storm will regain a winger of their own with Young Tonumaipea recovering from the calf strain that kept him out of Sunday’s win over Wests Tigers.

Craig Bellamy’s side will head into Round 8 sitting fifth on the NRL ladder with a 5-2 record.

Storm will be looking to repeat their Round 3 effort across the ditch when they defeated the Warriors 21-14 at Mount Smart Stadium.
