NRL institutes $5 meal deal at Allianz Stadium for week one of the finals

AFTER years of fans rallying against the exorbitant food and drink prices at many stadiums, the NRL has instituted a one-off meal deal at Allianz Stadium for week one of the finals.

For just $5, fans will be able to purchase a pie and soft drink, a massive discount from the normal price of $10.70.
The offer will be available for both matches at Allianz Stadium this weekend, the Roosters-Melbourne clash on Friday night and the Sharks-Rabbitohs sudden death battle on Sunday afternoon.

Didn't think if you jumped from in-goal and caught it out of the goal before landing in the field of play it was a 20m restart?

Crowd is pathetic though. For how many supposed roosters supporters there are they should be able to sell out, I suppose they are probably so cocky they think they will just go in two weeks time.
