STATE OF ANGST AFTER SLOW TICKET SALES

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

TICKET sales for the open­ing State of Ori­gin game at the MCG on June 6 have been slug­gish.

Ex­pec­ta­tions of an 80,000-plus crowd are un­likely to be reached. It’s look­ing more like 60,000 judg­ing by early sales. Ex­pect plenty of ticket give­away pro­mo­tions mid-next month. HE might be side­lined with a shoul­der in­jury but Wests Tigers re­cruit Josh Reynolds is carv­ing out a nice ca­reer in the me­dia at Fox Sports. His role as a pan­el­list on NRL 360 has now been ex­panded to a side­line com­men­tary role when he doesn’t have com­mit­ments with Wests Tigers. THE Cronulla Sharks are reach­ing out to the emer­gency ser­vices per­son­nel to say thank you for their brav­ery and hard work fight­ing the re­cent bush fires in the Shire.

All emer­gency ser­vices per­son­nel and volunteers will be given free en­try to this af­ter­noon’s home game against Pen­rith Pan­thers. To gain ac­cess, all they will need to do is show their ID card at the turn­stiles. MATTY Johns is ded­i­cat­ing his show tonight to the Aus­tralian Armed Forces in an An­zac Day spe­cial. The en­tire au­di­ence will be made up of peo­ple serv­ing in the mil­i­tary.

And due to pop­u­lar de­mand, Fox Sports will also be re­play­ing the Kokoda spe­cial on Wed­nes­day be­fore and after the footy.

Maroons cap­tain Cameron Smith and NSW Blues skip­per Boyd Cord­ner.
