Huge weekend in Sport

AFL and NRL Grand Finals.

Delhi 2010

What a weekend to launch Australian Sports Reviews. It will be a huge one, with both the AFL and NRL Grand Finals on the same weekend, thanks to the drawn AFL Grand Final last week.

Collingwood decisevly won the AFL Premiership, thanks to some inspired play of their own and a pretty much off day all around for St Kilda. Goalkicking was their main problem early on, kicking a mass of one pointers before eventually converting a goal in the second quarter. By that time the Magpies had a very healthy lead, which they maintained throughout. Finally finishing in front by 56 points at the siren.

On Sunday the Dragons take on the Roosters in the NRL Grand Final. The Dragons are firm favourites, but the Roosters have had a great run into the final playing some fine and very fast Rugby League. It’s been their games that I have enjoyed the most in this final series, so I have a foot in that camp. But it could go either way on the day.

The opening ceremony for the Commonwealth Games takes place in Delhi on Sunday too. Australia have sent their biggest overseas team. We will be commenting on many of the sports and results, not just the Australian ones. Let us hope the whole event goes off peacefully with no problems.

Of course we can not forget the English Premier League marches on. Most fans, I am guessing, will have an eye on the top of the table clash between Chelsea and Arsenal on Sunday night in London. We will undoubtedly have a write up on that for you on Monday.
