'The show will go on': Brookie cleared by NRL


//

The NRL have cleared Brookvale Oval to host Saturday's elimination final between the Manly Sea Eagles and Cronulla Sharks.

The grass-roots ground was facing the prospect of losing the blockbuster clash following the discovery of trace amounts of asbestos on the northern hill at the venue last Friday.

On Monday night, The NRL announced in a snap press conference from the ground that the venue was cleared of any safety concerns with Saturday's fixture to go ahead as originally planned.

"The show will go on," Nine's Damian Ryan reported from Brookvale.

"The Northern Beaches council which runs this ground insisted that the traces of asbestos discovered last Friday did not pose any health risk.

"The council today insisted that management plan was in place and reaffirmed there was no threat to anyone going to that match.

"Finally, the NRL were convinced that the game could go on this Saturday."

NRL boss Todd Greenberg admitted he was on the verge of moving Manly's home elimination final against Cronulla before giving the club 24 hours to satisfy safety concerns.

Greenberg insisted there were no concerns over the playing surface and that the area was limited to a small part on the northern hill of the venue.

The Sea Eagles have used the ground since entering the league in 1947, however, Greenberg believed fans haven't already exposed to the asbestos.

The development came after early excavation on the site as part of the planned centre of excellence to be built at the western section of the ground.
