Stadium Australia is hosting a historic finals triple-header this weekend with two NRL qualifying finals and one AFL semi-final in a magnificent weekend of sporting action.
On Friday night, 13 September, the South Sydney Rabbitohs qualified for a Week 3 NRL Peliminary Final when they defeated reigning premiers Melbourne Storm 20-10.
