Grand Final Experience In Lockdown


Lockdown wasn’t going to cloud the avid NRL fans on Sunday night with the Panthers and Rabbitohs going head to head in the Grand Final. Flags were hung on verandahs and in windows, memorabilia was dragged out and driveways decorated as Cowra locals remained determined to egg on their teams from the confines of their homes. Some residents rolled the TV outside and enjoyed a beverage with their neighbours as they watched the action packed game from their respective sides of the fence. Keeping the tradition of Grand Final night alive during such difficult times has shined a light on the lengths families will go to maintain some kind of normality during the stay at home orders. BBQs fired up and snacks were rolled out as social media became flooded with happy snaps of the different ways people across the area celebrated the big event. The highly anticipated game was an fueled tough 80 minutes to finish the NRL season for 2021. The Panthers took home the win after a difficult battle against the Rabbitohs with the score finishing at 14-12. The game gave people across all lock down areas something to celebrate and engage in, something to look forward to and enjoy during the long weekend, even if it was only from their living room.
