NRL Grand Final: Peter V’landys grateful to Queensland for rescuing rugby league

Contingency plans are in place to guarantee the appropriate fanfare for Sunday’s NRL Grand Final between the Penrith Panthers and South Sydney Rabbitohs.

ARLC chairman Peter V’landys told Jim Wilson while a Grand Final at Stadium Australia in Sydney would be preferable, the NRL has a lot to thank the Queensland government for.

“It’s not only rescuing this year, it’s rescuing future generations, because if we couldn’t play we’d be suffering losses for years to come.

“The Grand Final must have a crowd, you need that atmosphere, you don’t want an empty stadium … we’ve negotiated with the Queensland government that if something went wrong, we could move it to Townsville.”
