NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final - Canterbury Bulldogs v Melbourne Storm - Sunday 30 September 2012
It’s rugby league’s biggest match of the year and on Sunday 30 September the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and Melbourne Storm will go head to head in the 2012 NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final at ANZ Stadium.
As the 2012 minor premiers, Des Hasler’s Bulldogs head into the grand final looking to square away a dream season, while the Storm look to the clash as a chance to win a premiership on bona fide terms, having had their 2007 and 2009 premiership titles stripped following the salary-cap scandal of 2010.
For the first time ever, NRL Grand Final ticket holders will have exclusive access to a game-day carnival precinct at ANZ Stadium that will revolutionise the way Rugby League celebrates its biggest match of the year.

* Interactive games, rides, live music, a merchandise supercentre, family areas, food stalls and Grand Final team bars.
* A LIVE Wide World of Sports show from 10am - 11am, on-stage musical performances, DJs, acrobats, cheerleaders, prize giveaways and more.
