  1. I’m livid. Watched the first half of the NRLGF thinking it was nicely balanced. Flipped over to “The Newsreader” at half time and flipped it back just in time to see the last couple of minutes. Heartbroken for Brisbane. Yet to see the replay, but I’m going to try and enjoy it.

  2. Whopping figures for the NRL grand final on Nine. One of the greatest ever grand finals I have ever witnessed. Telecast was excellent, I think Nine lifted their game for this one.
    Heartbreak for the Brisbane Broncos, snatched from them it in the last 2 minutes, but they’ve played exceptionally well this year. Next year maybe?
