Let’s get loud: Bellamy
Storm coach Craig Bellamy has urged Melburnians to turn AAMI Park into a sea of purple pride on Friday night.
A big crowd is expected for the blockbuster clash against the Broncos as Melbourne aim to secure the 2016 minor premiership.
Storm have enjoyed a strong record at home this season, winning eight of their nine games at AAMI Park.
The coach hopes tomorrow night will see the city unite behind their side against the Broncos.
“It would be great to get a good crowd here tomorrow night. Hopefully it will be a noisy crowd, we cop that when we go away so hopefully we can return serve tomorrow,” Bellamy said.
“The Melbourne supporters are terrifically passionate and always very loyal.
“Hopefully they will turn up in numbers and if there are a few people out there who haven’t seen a game of NRL before, you’re probably not going to see a better game than a Broncos-Storm game.”
Needing just one more win to secure top spot, it would be easy for the focus of the playing group to waver.
However with tomorrow’s tough test against the Broncos starring them in the face, there is no time for looking too far ahead.
“We will get through today’s session, get through tomorrow night and then we will make plans for the next week,” Bellamy said.
“I try to not look too far ahead, especially at this time of year so we will just see what happens today, tomorrow and then go from there.”
