What time does the grand final of the NRL start?

The NRL Grand Final is the biggest game on the rugby league calendar, with the Penrith Panthers and South Sydney Rabbitohs square in a decision maker that promises to be epic.

However, with NSW, Victoria, Tasmania and ACT moving their clocks forward for Daylight Savings Time, keep in mind the time difference between Brisbane and Suncorp Stadium, and wherever you look.

The big NRL final of 2021 starts at 7:30 pm (AEDT) is sunday 3 october at the Suncorp stadium in Brisbane. That means the match will start at 7:15pm for Queensland, NSW, ACT, Victoria and Tasmanian fans.

That makes it a 6:30pm (AEST) start time for Brisbane local viewers; a time of 4:30 PM (AWST) in Perth and Western Australia; and a time of 7pm (ACST) if you’re looking from South Australia and the Northern Territory.
