PM Turnbull urges Australians to sing the anthem on Grand Final day

Malcolm Turnbull has urged Australians to come together on Grand Final weekend.

The Prime Minister made the plea amid calls for fans to boycott the national anthem before the AFL and NRL season deciders.

Mr Turnbull told Neil Mitchell everyone should sing.

‘Sport is a wonderful, inclusive institution in Australia,’ he said.

‘Both codes work hard to be inclusive, and embrace modern Australia in all of its diversity, and this is a time when we all come together.’

The Prime Minister said he is tipping the Swans to win the AFL premiership, although he admitted he’d fail a test on the game.
