    I'm wondering if there will be any open days for the fans to get down to Narrabeen to show the guys some support?

    I get a little envious when i see thousands of AFL fans get down to training to watch their heroes.

    I know we wouldn't get those numbers but i'd love to go down and soak up some atmosphere while also having a look at some of the grand final merchandise.

    Pretty sure that anyone can go the the Narrabeen Sports Academy and watch them train, its an open ground.

    Manly need to focus on tactics and strategy now, we don't want to distract them from the GF preparations. :angel:

    Maybe send cards for 2V to read out to them instead:D

    There won't be any official open training sessions this week. It was suggested however with all the other GF week activities the Football Dept decided training needed to be kept as normal as possible this week to prepare.

    That's understandable.

    I was hoping for something to get to but i remember we did throw everything open in 2007 and it wasn't a good result!

    I'll get there after the grand final no matter what happens.

    Hi @Larissa ...any plans afoot for a live site at Brookie on GF day itself? We went to the last couple and they were great - not planning on going out to ANZ this year due to having a toddler in tow, and last time around the live site was a fantastic day out for the *little people* (and no stress for the big people haha)

    That's disappointing. Tickets are so expensive this year and the Leagues Club is always packed and was a bit dangerous 08 trying to see the team bus with the big crowd. Is the NRL doing anything on GF Day? A Live Site at the stadium like they did qith the man U game?

    There should be a live site at Sydney Olympic Park itself. They've been doing it for the big games this year (Origin, Lions, ManU) so I can't see why they wouldn't do it this year.

    Can't see anything yet on ANZ's site, they might wait till it's sold out to advertise.

    Thanks
