The Storm defeating the Broncos 10-4, Olympic Park, 7 July 2006

Miss Eagle went to Olympic Park on Friday night to see The Storm play The Broncos. Wonderful game. The Storm at the top of the NRL (National Rugby League ladder) played The Broncos who are number 2 on the ladder. The two top teams in the competition provided great entertainment before a - needless to say - partisan Melbourne crowd who cheered, applauded, and sang The Storm to victory. While competition League games in Melbourne are not well attended compared to the preferred code of the locals, Aussie Rules, The Storm did well on Friday night with an attendance of 15, 479 providing a packed stadium and the best attendance in six years. Now Miss Eagle is not the best sporting photographer ever to grace a League game but the slide show below will give a feel for the game and its excitement. Miss Eagle is a Billy Slater fan ever since his magnificent first try in the first game of 2004 State of Origin. This is helped along because they are both North Queenslanders. Miss Eagle's friends, Skye and Eden, who Miss Eagle accompanied to the game are fans of Cooper Kronk who comes from Brisbane.
