Tickets for Simon Dwyer tribute match

3:51pm Tue 29th July, 2014

The NRL will double the amount raised from a special Wests Tigers ticket deal for injured former player Simon Dwyer.

Wests Tigers will donate $5 from every adult ticket and family pass sold for the match against the Melbourne Storm next Monday night (4 August) at Campbelltown Stadium.

CEO Dave Smith said today it was a great initiative by the Wests Tigers which would be matched by the NRL.

“In other words, whatever Wests Tigers raise through the ticket deal will be doubled by a matching donation from the NRL,” Mr Smith said.

“I think everyone in the game has sympathy for Simon who suffered an injury while he was poised for such a successful career.

“This initiative means fans can cheer on Wests Tigers and support Simon at the same time.”

Mr Smith said he was delighted that the Tribute dinner for Simon on Friday night was already sold out.

More than 550 tickets have been sold to the event at Wests Campbelltown.

The NRL will have two tables at the dinner and provide auction items to help raise funds.

“This is an important weekend for Simon and we urge all fans to do what they can to support him,” Mr Smith said.

The NRL have given Simon Dwyer a car at the fundraiser tonight. Channel nine crossed over to the tribute function at halftime of the dogs-penrith game and seems to be promoting awareness for Simon as the "forgotten man". A little late but it looks like the NRL and other powers at be are doing their part.

It was a good night. Very heavy nrl presence.

A lot of money raised. Plenty of memorabilia available.

Vey good night overall, other than the comedian... Very average.
