    NSWRL Grand Final Day triple treat
    By Nicholas Janzen, NSWRL
    12:39pm Tue 26th August, 2014

    Go ‘back to the future’, savour a sausage sanga or two and enjoy a feast of afternoon football at the retro-themed 2014 NSWRL Grand Final Day extravaganza, to be held at Allianz Stadium on Sunday, September 28.

    The 2014 NSWRL Grand Final Day triple treat promises to be a great day out for footy fans young and old, two decades after the last NSWRL Grand Final at the venue – and the best news for fans is tickets are retro-priced too.

    Be part of a week-long celebration of rugby league and witness history as three grand finals – the VB NSW Cup, the Ron Massey Cup and the Sydney Shield – are contested in more than six hours of excitement, entertainment and athleticism.

    Kick-off in the first decider, the Sydney Shield Grand Final, will be at 10.30am. The Ron Massey Cup Grand Final kicks-off at 12.40pm, with the VB NSW Cup decider due to commence at 3.10pm.

    The day of celebrations isn’t limited to the playing field though – there will also be a range of activities to keep the young and young at heart entertained. Included in the cost of admission are fan favourites like ‘pass the ball’, face painting, a jumping castle, mechanical bull, balloon artists, a petting zoo, a DJ blasting out old-school tunes and more. Finalists in Channel 9’s hit show The Voice, R 'n' B soul team ZK, are scheduled to perform the national anthem.

    Fans will also be given an opportunity to meet their favourite NRL stars, have their photos taken with the State of Origin Shield and even run out onto the field and kick their own footy around at the conclusion of the VB NSW Cup Grand Final too.

    Tickets to the 2014 NSWRL Grand Final Day are general admission only, with no reserved seating meaning great viewing positions can be obtained by early entrants.

    This year’s VB NSW Cup is one of the most tightly contested in recent seasons, with just seven competition points separating teams ranked second to 10th. It’s a similar story in the Ron Massey Cup, with four teams still jostling for the minor premiership. In the Sydney Shield, the competition is desperately chasing the Peninsula Seagulls, who have won an incredible 20 of 21 matches this season. :)

    Come along to this year’s 2014 NSWRL Grand Final Day, watch three great rugby league grand finals, and join in the afternoon-footy fun.

    Tickets to the 2014 NSWRL Grand Final Day are now on sale, with entry just $10 for adults, $5 for children and $30 for families. To purchase tickets to the NSWRL Grand Final Day and be part of rugby league history, click here

    Yes, they are a merger of local Clubs and seem to be a runaway success. The Manly Daily features them constantly.

    It just shows that there is plenty of talent and interest in RL on the Peninsular :)

    So only two games on NRL GF day instead of three???

    Makes the already ridiculously over-priced tickets even more so.

    No, still 3 Mosto.... the poor guys that win their NSW Cup Grand Final have to play Grand Final day against the QLD winner equivalent side. Imagine keeping the NSW Cup Premiers off the grog for another week....

    Meet the Peninsula Seagulls, our new rugby league team

    MEET the rugby league team that have any jerseys or a home ground.

    But that doesn’t bother the players from the Peninsula Eagles, the northern beaches newest football club, after it was confirmed they will play in this year’s Sydney Shield.

    The recruits who include the cream of the crop from the A grade competition trained for six weeks uncertain whether the team would go ahead.

    And they were so keen for the Seagulls to fly they have all agreed to take a pay cut.
    The driving forces behind team are former first grade stars Steve Gearin and Gary Pethybridge.

    The squad will wear Sea Eagles jerseys in their first trial tomorrow against Blacktown Workers at Lidcombe Oval as they wait for their new gear to arrive.

    “The boys have been working very hard and to finally get the green light to be part of this new venture is pretty exciting,” said coach Tim Gee.

    With the team stuck in limbo Gee managed to maintain the team’s enthusiasm and they only lost one player.

    “We told the players what we had in the bank and what we could definitely afford to pay them and credit to these guys they all said ‘we want to be part of this’,” Gee said.

    “And they are aware of the big picture that when we do get more money coming in it all goes to the players once the logistics are taken care of.”

    Prop James Leuluia from Narraweena is one of the Seagulls foundation members said there was no drama with former A grade rivals coming together in the new environment.

    “Everyone has got along with each other, I was a bit shocked,” he laughed.

    “We have gotten this far, so why no go the whole way.”

    Valley hooker Jake Gearin can’t wait to play at the higher level.

    “We all stayed because we want to play a better quality of footy and that is testament to the boys,” he said.
