Former Australian Test player Jim Serdaris will represent Greece when they take on Victoria as the curtain raiser to Melbourne Storm�s clash with the ladder leading Bulldogs at Olympic Park this Sunday.
Serdaris - who played almost 200 first grade matches for South Sydney, Canterbury, Western Suburbs and Manly - has returned to Australia in recent weeks after playing for the Pia Donkeys in France.
The Greek Rugby League will take on a representative team from the Victorian Rugby League prior to the Storm�s match against the Bulldogs and with the recent success of the Greek national soccer team and the Olympic Games in Athens, a strong turnout is assured.
Greece will be captain-coached by another former NRL player in Steve Georgallis and will be represented by a strong squad including ex-North Queensland hooker George Gatis.
Greece has also confirmed that they will meet Italy at Marconi Stadium in Sydney�s western suburbs on Saturday, October 2. The Greeks are focusing on October 2005 when they take on Russia in Athens. A domestic competition, based in Athens, is also planned for the same time.
