South Melbourne joined forces with Australia’s International Rules team to promote this weekend’s sporting extravaganza. Captain Vaughan Coveny and Eugene Galekovic were joined by Australian Captain Shane Crawford and goalkeeper Glen Jackovich after Australia’s training session on the MCG last night. Vaughan and Eugene were happy to give the Australian players advice on kicking the round ball and wished them all the best for their Friday night game against the Irish.
As a special promotion for South’s Sunday night game versus Marconi, anyone who presents their Australia v Ireland International Rules ticket, Derby Day ticket or Australia v Ireland Rugby World Cup ticket can gain half price entry to Bob Jane Stadium. There will be drink specials all night and a large Irish contingent is expected.
