Get your boots strapped up and your game face on, because finals day is almost here.
On October 6 at ANZ Stadium, Sydney Olympic Park, the NRL Grand Final will decide which team gets the spot at the top of the table and ultimate bragging rights for 2013.
Want to see what players see on the big day? Consider booking yourself onto one of the three-daily stadium tours. Instead of taking the role of spectator you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look into the changing rooms under the stadium and discover the hidden gems of this grand sporting stage.
When you’re there, stop for a bite to eat at Armory Wharf Cafe next to the Parramatta River on Jamieson Street. Rumour has it they have some of the best seafood meals in the whole of Australia. Then there’s the funky Abattoir Blues, Brazilian steakhouse Paul Brasil or casual Brewery at Novotel.
If you need somewhere to stay in the city, have a look at accommodation at Sydney Olympic Park like the stunning Pullman at Sydney Olympic Park or Australia Towers 90.6.
To ensure that you know everything there is to know about the history of this great game, or, as the museum puts it: ‘The Greatest Game of All’, your next visit should be to the Rugby League Museum, located in Moore Park. Here you’ll find stunning pieces of memorabilia like the game’s first Premiership trophy, as well as famous jerseys and other treasures from the past.
Lastly, don’t forget to book your tickets! They are on sale now, so don’t wait until the last minute as you don’t want to miss out! Alternatively, get the full NRL experience and book yourself in for a package deal.
