Etihad Stadium to host Round One blockbuster

Melbourne Storm will kick-off their 2009 campaign with a Round One classic against traditional rivals, the St George-Illawarra Dragons at Etihad Stadium on Friday, March 13.

The game, which kicks-off at 7.30pm, gives Victorian sports fans the opportunity to get a taste of NRL action as there are no major sporting events taking place in Melbourne on that weekend.

Storm CEO Brian Waldron is delighted to be able to take the Round One contest to Etihad Stadium.
