We kick off Men of League Heritage Round this Friday night with one of the most highly-anticipated and talked about matches in the 2013 NRL calendar, when we host the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at Allianz Stadium.

Men of League Heritage Round recognises the games proud history and raises 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.

What better way to celebrate this fantastic joint initiative between the NRL and all 16 clubs by being in the competitions most historic grandstand when some of the games biggest superstars go head-to-head.

As if there wasnt already a good enough reason to kick-start your weekend in the Allianz Stadium stands, X Factor 2013 winner Samantha Jade will be performing on-field pre-match and halftime.

Already a member of the Roosters family after wowing the crowd at our 2012 Season Launch, Jade will be on-hand to pump up the crowd this Friday night with some of her hit songs including the chart-topping What Youve Done To Me.

Game Day Live

Theres no better way to watch rugby league than live and in the stands as your heroes battle it out against the opposition and, in 2013 were making that experience even better.

At each home game this season, Game Day Live (GDL) will bring you the fan closer to the action.

Hosted by former Rooster Jimmy Smith, GDL is a pre-game panel show live from the field that is all about the football and even more importantly, all about the Roosters.

With in-depth analysis on the match ahead, pricing, match preview, team announcements, social media interaction, player and celebrity interviews, fan engagement with our very own Roosters TV reporter Jared Coote, competitions and loads more, GDL will bring the football to you right there in the Allianz Stadium stand.

Smith and Coote will be joined each week by a panel of guests including former Roosters Legends, celebrity guests and current players on a rotation basis with Round 5 seeing former Roosters playmaker and 2002 Premiership winner Craig Wing.

Spot a Steggler

The Spot a Steggler is a new interactive half time promotion that will run throughout the 2013 season at all home matches.

Steggles TRY posters will be handed out on entry into the stadium, so make sure that you grab yours as youve gotta be in it to win it!

The stadium camera will pan over the Allianz crowd at half time, looking for the best Steggler waving their TRY poster above their head.

The prize for the Spot a Steggler this match is a Roosters Alternate Jersey, a $100 Steggles voucher and 2 x Tickets to our Round 8 clash with the Panthers at Allianz Stadium.

Criniti's Fan of the Match

Each home match in 2013 we will be out and about around Allianz Stadium looking for our Criniti's Fan of the Match. The best-dressed fans in their Red, White and Blue will be snapped by a Roosters staff member and the lucky winner's face will appear on-screen at half time. If you're the lucky winner, you'll score yourself a $150 Voucher to Criniti's Italian Restaurant.

Game Day Steggles Charity Nest Badges

In support of the Steggles Charity Nest this season, we'll be selling match-day badges for just $2 in the Forecourt at each home match. There's a variety of badges available, so keep an eye out for the Sydey Roosters Cheerleaders and donate to a good cause.


At half time in the main game one lucky Roosters fan will have the chance to 'BOOT FOR A UTE' thanks to our friends Vogue Financial. Keep your eyes on the field at half time to see how they go!
