A report from the Herald Sun says the AFL is set to invest a six-figure sum into a new logo as they look to refresh it. But Shaw doesn't see the need, telling Macquarie Sports Radio the money would be better spent looking after grassroots clubs. “What a joke, what a deadset joke," Shaw said. “What’s wrong with the AFL – I have been on this for years. In Victoria, there are country and metro clubs who are folding week in, week out because they haven't got money.

The SCG has been confirmed to stage its first grand final since 1987 next year, with the NRL and NSW Government still in discussions to decide where the clash will be held in '21 and '22.

The NRL on Wednesday informed club bosses about the timing of ANZ Stadium's refurbishment, with Canterbury and South Sydney now needing to lock in new home grounds for the back half of 2020.

According to NRL.com, the Bulldogs and Rabbitohs will play the majority of their home matches before ANZ Stadium is under construction to minimise any disruptions.

A rebuilt stadium at Moore Park is due for completion in early 2022, putting it in contention to hold the grand final later that year.

ANZ Stadium has hosted every grand final since 1998, when the big dance was played at the now-demolished Sydney Football Stadium.
