NRL Grand Final

After 26 regular season rounds and three weeks of finals footy, only two teams are left in the comp. Around three million Aussies watch it on TV and the 83,000-odd ticket holders make their way to Sydney’s ANZ Stadium to see who'll take home the legendary Provan-Summons trophy, writing their name in the history books while they're about it. In the days leading up to the final, stores and shops deck their businesses out with coloured streamers and signs, willing their team on to glory.

In the last few years we've seen some crazy and innovative showdowns. 2014 saw the Rabbitohs finally clinch a Grand Final after going 43 years without one. 2008 saw Manly dish out the biggest flogging in Grand Final history, knocking off the Storm 40-0. In 2001, the Knights won the first ever night Grand Final while in 1999, an incredible 107,999 people saw Melbourne get the better of the Dragons. And then there was 2015, which could well go down as the greatest Grand Final ever, as Jonathan Thurston grabbed the winning field goal for the Cowboys in extra time. Whatever happens this year, you can almost guarantee it'll be one to remember.
