GRAND FINAL REPLAY
Hawthorn and Sydney will meet in a blockbuster clash on Saturday night as they battle for the AFL beyondblue Cup.
The match is set to be one of the games of the season as Sydney look to avenge their grand final defeat at the hands of the Hawks last year.
The theme of this year’s Cup is #LookOut4Mates, with all supporters urged to keep an eye out for their friends just like their heroes do on the ground.
beyondblue’s big blue bus, which has travelled more than 50,000km around Australia engaging communities about mental health, will be outside gate 3 at the MCG before the game with several Hawthorn players in attendance.
If you’re concerned about a friend or are struggling a bit yourself, mental health professionals can be contacted 24 hours a day, seven days a week at the beyondblue Support Service, on 1300 22 4636. The Support Service can also be accessed via webchat from 3pm to midnight or via email at www.beyondblue.org.au
