Up the Pies and Lions and Panthers and Broncos
Brissie footy fans had a cracker weekend, with their teams claiming spots in next weekend’s AFL and NRL grand finals. In the rugby league, the Broncos walloped the NZ Warriors 42-12, with Reece Walsh stealing the show (and being called an “absolute freak” by one commentator). They will be joined by the Penrith Panthers, who smashed Melbourne Storm 38-4 on Friday night. And in the Aussie Rules, the Brissie Lions held off Carlton for a 16-point win (79-63) in what would normally be called a tight match if it weren’t for the Giants’ one-point loss to Collingwood. Note: the red-carpet enabled Brownlow Medal ceremony is tonight… But happening right now is a do-or-die match for the Wallabies in the Rugby World Cup in France. If they beat Wales they might advance to the final 8, but the loss to Fiji last week means even a win might not be enough.
