WA offers late bid to host NRL Grand Final

Western Australia has made a late bid to snatch the NRL Grand Final from Queensland.

Officials held talks with the Australian Rugby League commission, offering up Perth’s Optus Stadium.

The match is schedule to be played at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane but Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has reduced crowd capacity to 75 per cent due to new COVID infections.

With just one day to go, the Queensland government is cautiously optimistic the event will go ahead tomorrow as scheduled.
