Brisbane Broncos have no great desire to challenge the Australian Rugby League (ARL) champions if they win tonight's Super League grand final at ANZ Stadium.

A "Super Bowl" between the champion Super League and ARL teams is still being mooted with the latest proposed date being October 8 at Sydney Football Stadium.

Brisbane's season is not over after the grand final with the Broncos backing up for the finals of the World Club Challenge and also taking part in Super League Tests against New Zealand and a tour of Great Britain.

Despite the promise of a sell-out crowd for a battle between the warring rugby league premiers, which some believed would be another step towards unification, the Broncos aren't excited about the idea.

"If we win we are the Super League champions, we can't do much more than that," said Broncos' five-eighth Kevin Walters.
