If you’re looking for a great spot to watch the 2019 NRL Grand Final in New York City, you’ve come to the right place! Whether you want to get out and enjoy it with friends, or you’d prefer to watch it from the comfort of your couch (or bed) at home, I’ve got you covered!

Depending on where in the world you are, the NRL Grand Final takes place on either the very early morning of Sunday, October 6, 2019 (4:30am New York Eastern Time) or Sunday, October 6, 2019 (Eastern Australia Time) at 7:30pm AEST.

Even if you aren’t a huge fan of the rugby back home (I’m from South Australia, I get it), I think you can safely say that you’ll love watching it with a few hundred other people looking to reconnect with a little bit of home-grown fun and nostalgia.

It’s a very early morning but it’s well worth it when you’re screaming for a team in a country so very far away.

About the 2019 NRL Grand Final

Canberra will be out to end a 25-year premiership drought, but it will take a massive effort to achieve, against the Sydney Roosters who go into the game as favorites to win back-to-back crowns for the first time since Brisbane in 1992-93.

Incredibly, this will be Cooper Cronk’s ninth grand final in what doubles as his last NRL appearance before he hangs up the boots. Can the Roosters send the legend off with the ending he deserves?

I’ll be honest, I copy and pasted this, because I really have no idea about rugby!
