    The grand final everyone expected for season 2008 before a ball was kicked, finally comes a year later

    I really look forward to the battle of the fullbacks for this game. Assuming Hayne plays of course.

    Slater proved tonight that he shouldn't be written off for the Australian spot.

    spewing that I'm going to miss the NSW Cup and Toyota Cup games. Knowing that, we'll probably win both of them.

    Watch the poll blow out in Eels favour...Storm will be quiet this week and will go about their business as usual.

    The Eels have judiciary issues and the weight of expectation from their fans to deal with.

    The poll is on a website. What relevance that has to the game I have no idea...

    Too hard to tell until the judiciary. If Hayne plays this will be a classic.

    1. Eels played their grand final on friday night. It was intense and tough and will take much out of the team.

    2. The Eels have two players who have to face the judiciary and an injured captain trying to be fit. It will be a big distraction IMO.

    3. Melbourne have the experience of 3 previous grand finals and would want retribution after last years embarrassment.

    For all those reason im going to say Melbourne by 14. But in saying that i really want the Eels to beat the Storm. Ill be there next Sunday so i am so pumped and cant wait.

    I see as you have already put the Bulls and Bears logo on.

    Neutrals can vote to.

    One thing going in Parras favour is obviously momentum and Melbourne havent exactly had a tough game in a while. They might get a little shock coming up against Parra.

    I can't see the Eels winning without Hayne could well end up like the other two matches that the Storm have played. If he does could go either way.

    I really hope Parra do it, but Melbourne have peaked at exactly the right time and have possibly the best lead up to the game.

    As they're the highest two teams, yes. It will be changed depending on results. It's not an anti-Parra conspiracy ;-)
