Whilst many here in Melbourne spent Anzac Day watching what they believe is the traditional footy clash set for that day, those of us in the know had the privilege of watching the mighty Dragons beat the Roosters in a tight and sometimes sloppy affair. A rather inexperienced Roosters competed fairly well on the day but in the end the Dragons experience and the skill of Matthew Heads kicking game got the Red and Whites home. With only a 4 day turnaround before our next match, the Dragons will have to be at their best to beat a highly competitive Storm side in Melbourne this Saturday.
As this is our only match scheduled in Melbourne this year, it is a must to attend for all Dragons fans. There is a large contingent of Dragons fans coming down from Sydney for the match, which will help to provide a bit of the Oki/Win atmosphere at Olympic Park. For those of you who would like to sit with the Dragons fans, you will need to purchase tickets in Bay 36 in the EASTERN STAND($25) or as close to Bay 36 as possible as this is where the Sydney supporters and a vast majority of the Melbourne Supporters will be sitting. Tickets can be purchased at Ticketek outlets or at the gate on the day. Queues can often be lengthy at Olympic Park close to game time so try and pre purchase tickets where possible.
The MBDS will also be meeting at the Depot Hotel 60 Swan St Richmond for a catch up before the game. We will be there from 2pm onwards so come in and say G'Day and soak up the atmosphere before we head to Olympic Park for the match at 7:30pm.
MBDS Shirts - There are only a few MBDS shirts left at the subsidised price of $40 thanks to One Stop Home Loans. Many of you will have seen the shirts at events so far this year, and they look fantastic so please let us know asap if you want one.
