Rugby League, the easy way, on the big screen at Panthers Club, Newcastle, (formerly The Workers' Club). Heaps of people follow league.
The National Rugby League Grand Final is played in Sydney, Sunday, tomorrow, around 7pm , between Melbourne Storm and Manly Sea Eagles. Newcastle Knights' didn't make it this time.
Every man and his dog was at the Workers' when the Knights' bus returned after winning the grand final some years ago. In the past the Workers' had strong associations with trade unionism in this blue collar town. The building was a scene of disaster in the earthquake and subsequently had lengthy litigation - as was the case with several other buildings in the area.
