Wests Tigers and Canterbury Bulldogs are preparing to battle it out for the Beyond Blue Cup, and there's some great matchday ticket prizes to be won as well!
Yes folks we're looking for a couple of fans to take part in the pre-match entertainment on Friday. Also up for grabs is an $800 VIP Game Day Experience Prize for our home game against the Dragons later in the season.
To enter the draw, simply tell Beyond Blue how you will commit to playing your role for good mental health. You'll find more details below.
Wests Tigers host the Beyond Blue Cup each year, providing the rugby league community with an opportunity to lend its support to promoting the awareness of mental health.
Ahead of this year’s event, we’re asking fans to make a commitment to support their mates. “How?” Glad you asked.
A good place to start is to remember these four key words: look, ask, listen and support.
• Look out for changes in behaviour that may signal a mate might be struggling. They might seem on edge or are less social than usual.
• Ask how they are going. Even if they say they’re fine, checking in shows you care.
• Listen openly and without judgement if a mate says they’re not fine.
• Support a mate by making sure they know you’re there for them and connect them with support if they need it.
Jake Simpkin is one of many Wests Tigers players who feels comfortable reaching out to his teammates. The 20-year-old hooker says Luke Brooks is someone who is always there to listen.
Brooksie is one of our senior players and has been around for a while. He is someone I can always go to for a chat or to share something that might be on my mind.Jake Simpkin
There are lots of other players too who I can easily have an open and honest chat with.”
Wests Tigers are giving away a VIP game day experience to one lucky fan who commits to playing their role for good mental health.
There are also two prize packs (each containing four tickets) to Friday's game against the Bulldogs at Leichhardt Oval to be won.
The winners of the tickets to Friday's game will also be involved in the Beyond Blue activities on the playing field before kick-off. Better hurry though...to win these tickets, you must enter the draw before 5pm on Wednesday!
To WIN either of the above prizes ENTER HERE. Simply tell Beyond Blue prior to Friday's game, which role you will play.
The Prize, valued at $800 includes:
• A VIP game day experience at Wests Tigers vs St George Illawarra Dragons (Sunday, 28 August)
• Includes an Open Corporate Reserve for eight people at CommBank Stadium (Catering not included.)
• Includes ‘ground walk-on’ for the team warm-up
