In the NRL – ARLC Chairman Peter V’landys has confirmed Sydney’s Accor Stadium is the venue for the NRL Grand Final 2022 and not beyond, so the future of the event remains undecided. V’landys said that they may look to a NFL Super Bowl arrangement where the final venue moves every year.
And the Penrith Panthers won the NRL Minor Premiership 2022 after they pipped Souths at the post last night.
