Best of luck to the girls, bring the trophy home. We’ll be providing live updates from 2.00pm on our facebook page  (www.facebook.com/theroarreview), however due to the 1 hour delay on ABC’s TV coverage, it wont be in sync with the TV so if you plan on watching the game on delay, it might be best to avoid social media tomorrow.
