You Am I, Justice Crew, Jessica Mauboy for NRL Grand Final

By David Knox on September 29, 2010 / Filed Under Programming 17

You Am I will perform at the NRL Grand Final this Sunday on Nine.

Joining lead singer and guitarist Tim Rogers will be guest vocalists Dan Sultan and Grinspoon’s Phil Jamieson to perform Rolling Stones classics, Brown Sugar and Start Me Up.

They will be joined by ex-Jet Stevie Hesketh on keyboards, ex-Hunters and Collectors Jack Howard on brass, plus vocalist Venetta Fields (John Farnham Band) and rising vocalist Lanie Lane.

Also performing will be Australia’s Got Talent winners Justice Crew. Jessica Mauboy will sing the national anthem accompanied by an 80-strong children’s choir.

Coverage will begin at 10.00am with the Sunday Roast, followed by The Sunday Footy Show broadcast live from ANZ Stadium at 11.00am. Action on the field begins live at midday when the Canterbury Bulldogs play the Windsor Wolves for the NSW Cup. At 2.00pm the South Sydney Rabbitohs take on the NZ Warriors in the Toyota Cup Grand Final before the Grand Final kick-off at 5.00pm.

Other states will commence the broadcast with pre-match entertainment at 4:30pm AEDT.

The 3D telecast will be available on Channel 40. An HD broadcast will be available on GEM.

The Nine Network will broadcast the 2010 Telstra Premiership Rugby League Grand Final exclusively LIVE in 3D on Sunday.

After a gripping finals series the 2010 minor premiers, St George Illawarra Dragons, will meet the 2009 wooden-spooners, the Sydney Roosters, at ANZ Stadium for the Telstra Premiership crown.

The merged entity St George-Illawarra team has yet to win a premiership and the Dragons last tasted success in 1979. But under supercoach Wayne Bennett – who has a 100 percent Grand Final success rate with six wins from six attempts – the Saints go marching in on Sunday looking to break their drought.

And with 2010 Coach of the Year Brian Smith and Captain of the Year Braith Anasta in charge, the Roosters are out to become the first team to go from last place to premiers in one season since 1934.

Nine will begin a massive day of rugby league at 10.00am with the Sunday Roast, followed by The Sunday Footy Show broadcast live from ANZ Stadium at 11.00am. All the action on the field begins live at midday when the Canterbury Bulldogs play the Windsor Wolves for the NSW Cup. At 2.00pm the South Sydney Rabbitohs take on the NZ Warriors in the Toyota Cup Grand Final before the Grand Final kick-off at 5.00pm.

Catch the top names in the game as they present the 2010 Telstra Premiership Rugby League Grand Final live on Nine. The expert line-up features the voice of rugby league, Ray Warren, Peter Sterling, Phil Gould, Andrew Johns, Wally Lewis, Brad Fittler, Andrew Voss and Tim Gilbert. Joining Nine’s specialist team on Sunday is Melbourne Storm fullback and 2010 representative player of the year, Billy Slater.

The Grand Final broadcast will be live on Nine in high definition on GEM, and in 3D on digital channel 40 on 3D-enabled digital televisions in Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

    Is it wrong that I’m looking forward to the NSW Cup final more than the premiership final? Hopefully the mighty Belmore boys can take out reggies for the second year running.

    I have this crazy thing when it comes to Rugby League games in that, I tune in to, ya know, what a game of Rugby League!

    Short of Jesus walking to the middle of the pitch, turning water in to wine and than apologizing for Willie Mason existing…..I really couldn’t give two stuffs who they get for the “entertainment”!

    Its the same cookie cutter rubbish every single year at every single sport.

    Note that the NRL Grand Final post-match presentations will be shown on GEM in Victoria and Tasmania, but not in Adelaide.

    ‘Merged entity’? Not a very flattering description. Clearly whoever wrote that release ain’t a St George fan

    The Toyota Cup grand final will also be shown live on Fox Sports.

    Queensland gets the full days coverage starting at 9am (AEST) on Nine, but only the grand final in HD on Gem. Not happy Nine, the whole day should be in HD.

    Don’t care for the entertainment, bring on BBQ’ed chook!
