NRL grand final set to be an epic clash between Panthers and Rabbitohs

On Sunday, this year’s NRL season will come to a head when the Penrith Panthers face the South Sydney Rabbitohs in an epic grand final clash.

The all-Sydney affair will be played in front of a Queensland crowd, the first time the grand final has been held outside NSW.

This year there is no Melbourne Storm or Sydney Roosters, the two teams who have dominated the competition for a decade.

For the Panthers it’s a chance to better their runner-up performance in last year’s decider. The Bunnies are after their first trophy since 2014, the last time they made it this far in the competition.

Today on Please Explain, sports reporter Michael Chammas joins Nathanael Cooper to look at what to expect from the 2021 grand final.
