The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and Parramatta Eels will on Monday play for the I4Give Cup for the first time.
The I4Give Cup has come about as a joint initiative between the Bulldogs and Parramatta, as a way of supporting Danny Abdallah (below) and his family in regard to their decision to adopt forgiveness as the response to the memory of their children and niece being killed in a car accident in Oatlands.
After the match the I4Give Cup will be presented by Danny Abdallah to the winning captain, with both teams present.
The Cup was launched at Accor Stadium on Tuesday, by Bulldogs captain Josh Jackson and Eels captain Clint Gutherson, with Danny and his family in attendance.
In addition, Bulldogs Chief Executive, Aaron Warburton, and former legends Tim Mannah, Terry Lamb and Hazem El Masri were all in attendance to show their support for the initiative.
Accor Stadium gates will open on Monday at 1:25pm ahead of the Knock-on Effect Cup match between Bulldogs and Eels at 1:40pm.
Kick-off in the i4Give Cup is at 4pm.
