NRL.com Wed, Apr 10, 2013 - 12:34 PM

With Men of League Heritage Round just around the corner, we’re urging NRL fans to get behind their team with some fantastic match-ups in store for everyone!

A brilliant new ad campaign has hit our TV screens to celebrate this wonderful round (Round 6) which aims to recognise the game’s proud history and raise awareness and much needed funds for the work the Men of League Foundation does to assist those from the Rugby League family who have fallen on difficult times.

The Foundation provides assistance and support to players, coaches, referees, officials and administrators from all levels of the game, as well as members of their families and the broader Rugby League community.

The Round kicks off on Friday, April 12, with the Broncos hosting the Cowboys and the Roosters tackling the Bulldogs. The following day, the Knights play the Panthers, the Raiders clash with the Warriors and the Rabbitohs face the Storm.

In Sydney on Sunday, Rugby League will honour two of its most famous Grand Final encounters. The Sea Eagles and Sharks clash at Brookvale Oval will highlight the unforgettable 1973 Grand Final between the two clubs while the Wests Tigers-St George Illawarra match at the SCG will celebrate 50 years since the 1963 Grand Final between the Dragons and Magpies famous for the iconic Provan-Summons ‘Gladiators’ image. The round concludes with the Sunday evening clash between the Titans and the Eels on the Gold Coast.

It really is a special week for the game and a time to highlight the amazing work of the Men of League Foundation so support your team and avoid queues on match day by buying your tickets now: www.nrl.com/heritage
