‘Not a fan’: Wild speculation QLD wants to snare NRL grand final
There’s speculation that Queensland could make a bid for the NRL grand final to be played at Suncorp Stadium, although the government won’t be drawn on it.
But 4BC’s Wide World of Sports host and commentator Peter Psaltis says he doubts it will happen.
He admits he’s a “traditionalist”.
“I’m not a fan,” he said.
“Mind you, if we were to have it, yes I’d go with bells on and absolutely enjoy it and enjoy the build up.
“But I think in this country, there’s something special about NRL grand final weekend in Sydney, AFL grand final weekend in Melbourne.”
He says Magic Round has to be at Suncorp Stadium, a weekend that fans can plan around it.
