Watch the difference between the presentation of the Super league GF and the NRL GF.
Enough said.
Down under wins by a country mile.



Very true, Just watched nearly over 8 hrs of footage, starting with Sunday Roast, Sunday Footy Show, NSW Cup Final, Toyota Cup Final and NRL GF. All on Channel 9, not on pay tv. I love living here and one of the reasons is the love of rugby league. I went to the supermarket on the gold coast this morning and some cashiers and staff were wearing there teams shirts. People are talking about it at work. It's fantastic. On a downside the pre match entertainment was s.hite. Jessica Mauboy miming and some guy ripping off Rolling Stones. Apart from that 1st class viewing

In the UK we didn't get all that for the NRL Grand Final, we only got the match, and honestly, it was worse than the Super League coverage. Constantly yappiong on about accidental offside and whatnot.

Sky Sports News are showing the victory parade in Wigan. Dunno when it starts but they need something to fill air time with more rain in Wales.

Quite honestly, that's all I was interested in so works for me.

Just a quick FYI regarding Sky Sports 2 being a "downgrade". Since this football season began, on Saturdays all of Sky's Premier League content from Soccer AM to Football First and all matches etc inbetween have been on SS2. Sky have noticably been shifting content around since then rather than just putting all their "good stuff" (in their eyes, not ours) on SS1.

Just on the NRL GF, I know some people criticise Sky for showing too many replays, but I often feel Channel 9 don't show enough. The first St George try came after a Dragons player went into touch, but it wasn't picked up by the TJ. The replay confirming this wasn't shown until long after the Video Ref had awarded the try.
