Legends Of Origin Just Got Bigger
MG's Origin announcement on this morning's show has made our heads spin!
Last Thursday night the Legends Of Origin game raised $380,000, but Mark "MG" Geyer from Triple M Sydney's The Grill Team announced a figure higher than that on this morning's show.
"On behalf of Triple M and The Grill Team it is my absolute pleasure to announce that we have raised for the Premier's Relief Fund $455,345," announced a delighted MG.
To celebrate the news The Grill Team invited Queensland Premier Anna Bligh on the show and she was genuinely touched by the news.
"What a mighty effort. Sensational outcome guys," she said. "The money will make a huge difference to people who have just been devastated but it's more than that.
"The fact so many people came out and the effort you guys went to, [and] the genuine involvement of all the players… it makes people up here feel like people care about them. And frankly right now that's just as important."
Thank you again to everyone who supported the Legends Of Origin match. It was a magical night. Relive all the action from the Legends Of Origin match.
