The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

WE’RE hear­ing there is a huge plan in­volv­ing the Par­ra­matta Eels and the new West­ern Syd­ney Sta­dium to be part of An­zac Day com­mem­o­ra­tions from next year.

Like the AFL do, the Eels would play on An­zac Day eve against the Can­ter­bury Bull­dogs.

It’s a fan­tas­tic idea be­ing driven by the Eels who want it to be­come an an­nual event as big as the St Ge­orge Illawarra — Roost­ers An­zac Day block­buster at Al­lianz Sta­dium.

On a non-school night be­fore a pub­lic hol­i­day, there is no rea­son why the Eels and Bull­dogs couldn’t at­tract a 32,000-strong crowd.

West­ern Syd­ney Sta­dium.
