Melbourne to host third and final
Origin clash next year

Melbourne will host the third and final rugby league State of Origin match next year.

The match will be staged at the Telstra Dome while the city will also stage a game during the 2006 Tri-Nations Cup.

Victorian Premier Steve Bracks has made the announcement at a luncheon today celebrating Melbourne Storm's 100th home game. It comes as part of a multi-million dollar campaign to promote rugby league in Victoria.
