Heartbreaking reason for touching Storm gesture


//

Storm players wore white armbands in last night’s season-opening win over Brisbane as a tribute to a club member who was tragically killed.

Tamara Farrell, 31, was murdered, with her body burnt and dumped 300 kilometres from her Ballarat home.

Police have charged a 22-year-old man, who was well known to Ms Farrell, with the crime in mid-February.

In the cruellest of ironies, Ms Farrell was an outspoken supporter of the war on domestic violence, helping victims and working for the White Ribbon Foundation.

Her death touched the Storm players, with the club also raising money for the Foundation at the ground.

“The incident really touched the boys and they wanted to pay their respects with the white ribbons,” a source close to the players said.

“Tamara was a huge fan of the club and was known to a lot of the boys.”
