A massive crowd packed into Ballymore to witness the Classic Anzacs victorious over the Classic British & Irish XV in Triple M's Classic Rugby.
The event organised by Marto and Mates4Mates featured Victoria Cross recipient Ben Roberts-Smith don his footy boots and take the the field once more.
"It was an honour playing with some of the greatest rugby players in the world. More importantly, it was fantastic to be able to represent Mates4Mates and raise a significant amount of money as well as raise awareness of the charity and the fact that wounded soldiers need our support,"
The event, considered by most, a worthy curtain-raiser to the first Wallabies Test v Lions at Suncorp, saw fans from around the globe head to the Ballymore, the spiritual home of rugby in Queensland.
At the last count the money raised was $200,000 but this is sure to rise with donations still coming in and a jersey auction to take place.
A massive shout out to the wonderful organisations who's support we couldn't have done without.
And to the fans, thank you.
