    An AFL grand final like no other

    An AFL grand final like no other

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    Two Victorian sides, Richmond and Geelong, will tonight square-off away from the colosseum that is the Melbourne Cricket Ground due to Covid issues in the city.

    They'll face off more than 1600 kilometres away at the Gabba in Brisbane, with the crowd capped at 30-thousand, far from the near 100-grand normally at the MCG.

    Despite it also being the first ever night decider, Richmond coach Damien Hardwick says at the core of it, it's another game of footy.



    Centre bounce is at 9:30pm.
