Rugby Leagues Most Wanted Grand Final

New Zealand NRL fans are expected to watch Prime?s live and exclusive fee-to-air broadcast this Sunday. The long-awaited NRL Grand Final clash between the Sydney Roosters and the Bulldogs will screen at 11pm on Prime.

The Sydney Roosters advanced to their third consecutive grand final with a gritty 19-16 win over the North Queensland Cowboys last Sunday. The Bulldogs defeated the reigning premiers, the Penrith Panthers, 30-14 last Saturday to reach their first grand final since 1998.

Calling the match will be the voice of rugby league, Ray Warren, with Paul Vautin, Peter Sterling and Phil Gould providing special comments. Reporting from the sidelines will be Andrew Voss, Matthew Johns and Paul Harragon.

Prime will continue its support of Rugby League again next year with another season of exclusive free-live-to-air coverage of The Warriors.
