The Sydney Roosters will join together with the Rugby League community to honour our service men and women in the traditional ANZAC Day clash against the St George Illawarra Dragons at Allianz Stadium on Thursday, April 25, 2013.


The annual tradition sees the teams joining their supporters in paying tribute to former and current Australian and New Zealand service men and women. Match day activities will honour the ANZAC spirit and remember all those who have served their nation. Featuring the Royal Australian Army Band, a moments silence, the ode reading, and the last post, the traditional ceremony is a truly touching tribute to our ANZACs.


The traditional match is one of the most eagerly-anticipated match-ups on the NRL Premiership calendar and is a special event for all rugby league fans. The Sydney Roosters will be keen to avenge last years heartbreaking last minute loss in front of more than 35,000 fans.


Be there and experience the electric atmosphere as we honour the ANZACs in this epic encounter. It's more than a game, it's a tradition.
