Massive game for our Club: Smith
There is no bigger home and away game this season.
On Wednesday night Storm will take on the Warriors in an ANZAC Day clash with a long list of reasons why fans should book their tickets quickly.
Match: Storm vs Warriors
Venue: AAMI Park
- Fox League
- LIVE PASS
The most unique and electrifying pre-game show in Australian sport will be back with the AAMI Park black out. This annual blockbuster attracts massive crowds on average of more than 23,000 every year.
Both sides will be coming off just five-day turnarounds but there is no concern at all about being ready to go by the time the first ball is kicked at 7pm on Wednesday night.
"It is not a hard game to get up for this one, the ANZAC Day game," Storm captain Cameron Smith said.
"It is a massive occasion and a massive game for our Club, and for the Warriors as well.
"We all enjoy playing on this day, it is a special day for both countries. To get to play rugby league on this day is pretty special. I think everyone will be up for it."
This year sees both sides in great form heading into the game.
Melbourne have begun to regain their mojo with back-to-back wins and an impressive runaway win over the Broncos at Suncorp Stadium on Friday.
The Warriors on the other hand have barely put a foot wrong all season, losing just the one game and last round overcame the previously unbeaten Dragons.
This fifth versus second clash has all the hallmarks of an epic.
"We have always shown great respect to the Warriors every time we've played them," Smith said.
"The Warriors are playing fantastic, they are the current (equal) leaders of the competition. They look like they are enjoying their football and they are playing some pretty good football as well.
"This will be a good test for us... we are really happy with how we've performed over the last two weeks."
Fans are encouraged to be in their seats by 6.30pm in time for the AAMI Park blackout.
