One of the Vodafone Warriors’ greatest rivalries has a preseason instalment in just under a month when they face the Melbourne Storm in the first of the club’s two 2017 NRL trials.

The encounter at Sunshine Coast Stadium on Saturday, February 11 (5.00pm kick-off local time) is the first trial between the two sides since the Vodafone Warriors beat the Storm 24-12 in Hamilton in 2009.

Coming a week after the Downer NRL Auckland Nines, the match will have significance for Stephen Kearney as he makes his 13-a-side debut as Vodafone Warriors head coach against the club he made 139 NRL appearances for as well as serving as an assistant coach from 2006-2010. 

It’s not the first time the Vodafone Warriors have played at Sunshine Coast Stadium; they lost a trial there 16-24 to Manly in 2008.

Tickets start at $20 for adults, $10 for children (under-18) and $55 for a family of four.

There is also an ultimate fan package available for $150 which includes reserved grandstand seating, pre-and-post VIP tent access and the opportunity to meet players.

Tickets can be purchased from the Sunshine Coast Stadium website
