    I don't see why Parra can't win. I won't back them but I don't see why they can't.

    If people can transition gender, I can transition teams. Eels wiping the floor with Siebold's Canetoads made me so happy I am now an Eels fan.

    Eels got dis 30-6.

    Has a minor premier ever gone out in straight sets before? Surely not one as dominant as the storm have been this year

    Sucks that a team that lost their last final gets to play at home again.

    Dragons 2009?

    But yeah not as dominant.

    I think the Eels are a massive chance.

    If the refs put their whistles away then i reckon they'll win. But if it's an ugly stop-start game with a 9-9 penalty count then the Storm probably strangle them with some hardcore anti-football.

    On this week's form you'd go Parra easy. I feel like Storm players will want their pets returned to them alive and well though, so they won't lose two finals at home.

    Hope Parra win but they remind me a bit of us in 2016 when we were dusting most teams but really struggled with the grinders like the Storm and Sharks. Need a ton of patience playing those purple f*cks and just not sure Parra can keep it up for 80 minutes.

    We always struggle with grinding sides...

    On the plus side I do think the Storm are vulnerable on their edges, which is where we are strong. And sometimes in a grind some individual brilliance can make a huge difference. We certainly have that...

    I'm fully expecting a loss but that's perfectly fine, if someone had said in Feb we'd make finals week two I'd have dropped to my knees and done whatever they wanted.

    The actual scoreline today is just the best gravy of all time

    I am worried but I do think we Winn get the win. We are too good to go out in straight sets and we deserve a crack at Easts before our season is over

    That said, Parra were very good today so there’s reason to be nervous

    If Parra play anything like they did today they are a good chance of knocking over the Storm. Saying that the Storms kicking game is way, way superior to what we threw up today, they have Munster and we had a Darius. Also can the Eels play two games like that in a row?

    I hate the Storm for all the thrashings they have handed out to us in the past and now that Parra have joined that list I don't care who wins. Go the Raiders!

    Well, they are at least drug testing during the finals.

    Expect the unexpected, and expect it to continue. Parra by 26-14.
