NRL, today 8.45pm; Fri­day 9.55pm. Holden Cup, today 6.55pm. NSW Cup, to­mor­row 3.05pm/ 5.10pm. NZ Pre­mier­ship, to­mor­row 2pm/ 4pm.

Grand finals loom and no let­ting up in the in­ten­sity across the grades. Bris­bane and Pen­rith got NRL week two un­der way last night with the win­ner fac­ing the daunt­ing trip to AAMI Park on Fri­day night to meet mi­nor pre­miers Mel­bourne. The Storm got home in a close one with the Eels who now face the un­sung Cow­boys tonight. North Queens­land have an­other trip to Syd­ney after their hero­ics in snatch­ing it late against the Sharks — the de­fend­ing pre­miers — and will again go in as un­der­dogs. The win­ner of this one heads to Al­lianz Sta­dium in Syd­ney next Satur­day to play the Roost­ers. In Holden Cup games, Bris­bane and Pen­rith also played last night while the Sharks and the Sea Ea­gles meet in tonight’s cur­tain­raiser at ANZ Sta­dium. Still the War­riors to watch in the NSW Cup pre­lim­i­nary finals. After their im­pres­sive ef­fort in thump­ing New­cas­tle 30- 6, they are at Le­ich­hardt Oval in to­mor­row’s early game to play the Wy­ong Roos who headed the War­riors in claim­ing that mi­nor pre­mier­ship. The win­ner of this one will face the win­ner of the late game be­tween the Panthers ( who fin­ished third) and the Dogs ( fourth) in the fi­nal. The New Zealand na­tional pre­mier­ship kicks- off to­mor­row with two games.
