Anzac Day clash head­ing to SCG

The Northern Star - - SPORT - — AAP

ANZAC Day rugby league will re­turn to the SCG next sea­son for the first time in more than three decades, with the tra­di­tional clash be­tween the Syd­ney Roost­ers and St Ge­orge Illawarra to shift for the next three years.

The move, to ac­com­mo­date Al­lianz Sta­dium works, will be the first Anzac Day game at the ground since Can­ter­bury and South Syd­ney’s clash in 1986.

SCG Trust chair­man Tony Shep­herd de­scribed the Anzac Day Cup as the largest and most sig­nif­i­cant NRL match out­side the fi­nals se­ries.
