The Grand finals weekend

Most of the focus for the coming weekend in Melbourne will be around the AFL Grand final between Sydney Swans and the West Coast Eagles and there is another grand final, the National Rugby League one and this one features a Melbourne team. For the second year running we are hosting inter-state teams in the final and also these are the same teams that battled it out last time around.

Although there is no Melbourne AFL team involved this year, the Melbourne rugby league team Melbourne Storm will be playing in NRL grand final on Sunday in Sydney against Brisbane Broncos at the Sydney Olympic Stadium. Like Melbourne, Sydney is hosting a final that doesn't involve the host city team.

With the AFL and NRL becoming more and more national I think its good to see teams from other states playing in the finals and at the end of the day its a question of the best team winning.

In that vein I am hoping that West Coast will beat Sydney and that the Storm will bring the NRL trophy back to Melbourne.
