Stuart Kelly game (Round 20) at ANZ Stadium Eels vs Tigers get out there to show your support

Just watched the interview on 60 minutes with the Kelly family regarding the tragic situation they have gone through losing their two sons, first Thomas in 2012 from a coward punch in Sydney's Kings Cross then his younger brother Stuart in 2016 as a result of suicide. The parents have gone through hell, i'm a tough bugger but was reduced to tears as a result of this interview. The NRL is putting on a tribute to metal health awareness match featuring the Eels and Tigers at ANZ Stadium 2 weeks from now (Round 20) 

The message is SK - Stay Kind (also Stuart Kelly's initials) Stuart was a massive Eels supporter and his father Ralph a Tigers supporter, however on that day the family will be throwing their support behind the Eels in honour of Stuart. 

Get out there and show your support.

Good post Mudskip.

What a tragedy. Such a sad story.

There'll be plenty of us at the Tigers game showing our support...

Agreed. I actually knew the family, not well but i knew them. Devastating to see someone you knew go through that, absolutely horrific. Just makes Andrew Fifita's vulgar act from last season with the disgusting FKL slogan on his arm even more unforgivable. I encourage fans of both the Eels and the Tigers to get out to ANZ Stadium in Round 20 and show your respect for young Stuart Kelly, taken far too soon. 

I personally will be naming the game day blog in his honour, its not much but its something i think i/we can do. 

I'm going to top blog this and change the title a little, hope you don't mind Mudskip. 

You a mod capt?

Only recently, yes mate. 

Keep it real capt lol.

As long as he doesn't make you one i think we will be okay. 

I'll touch it up a little if you want mate. 

Please captain
And thanks

All good mate, not sure i can but it in the banner though. Although i would love to see it. 

Thanks capt

No worries mate.
