Rabbitohs coach Wayne Bennett says he "would prefer" if the NRL grand final was played in Sydney due to the competition's storied history.

As it stands, the decider between the Panthers and Rabbitohs will go ahead at Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium on Sunday despite yesterday's announcement of a capped crowd at 75 per cent capacity due to a COVID-19 outbreak.

Since the NRL was formed in 1998, every grand final has been played in Sydney. Brisbane last held a grand final a year earlier in 1997, when Bennett famously led the Broncos to the Super League title in that competition's only season.
