    A letter from Queensland Premier Anna Bligh is threatening to spark one of the biggest shake-ups in rugby league history - a Brisbane grand final.

    In a massive wake-up call for stay-at-home Sydney fans, the NRL confirmed discussions were under way with Queensland Government representatives about moving the decider north. 

    NRL boss David Gallop revealed Bligh had sent him a letter earlier this month, in which she proposed the grand final be played at Suncorp Stadium on the back of incredible corporate and crowd support from Queenslanders of late. 

    Bligh cited last year's sell-out World Cup final and the fact all corporate hospitality packages for Origin III in Brisbane had been snapped up in a single day as compelling reasons to strip the grand final from Sydney for the first time in the code's 101-year history.
