IN PICTURES: NRL Grand Final, Pt 2 (43 photos)

IN PICTURES: NRL Grand Final, Pt 2 (43 photos)

The 2013 NRL Grand Final between the Manly Sea Eagles and the Sydney Roosters was a tight, tough, thrilling tussle. ARN Editorial Director, Mike Gee, was lucky enough to be the guest of Manly sponsor, Kapsersky. A camera nut, he took along a Canon 7D fitted with a 15-85mm lens and shot off hundreds of photos. This slideshow is a selection of those shots. Unfortunately, the result wasn't what Kaspersky, the Sea Eagles or our man were looking for but the Roosters were the better team on the night ... just.

The final slideshow from this year's awards is a weird but compelling overview from ARN's editorial director, Mike Gee, who pulled out his trusty Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT4 (normally used when trout fishing) and just nailed some casual and unposed views. The quality in some instances may not be the best. But the vibe is! Enjoy.
