The 50 point rule ends next weekend I reckon. Souffs are fresh, full of confidence and have Bennett leading them. Penrith are busted, just played their GF and are beyond ready for a holiday. It'll be close for the majority, but Bennettball and the game managing class of Reynolds will see them home.

Should be a good one.

Probably the 3rd GF in the NRL era I can think of that is a genuine 50/50 contest in my mind along with 2004 and 2018 . Note that the favourite in my mind hasn't always won

No idea... but the winner to win by less than 6.

The Big Dance. Here it is. We had the easier prelim. They've been in 3 brutal street fights in 3 weeks. Like we did yesterday, we have to be ready from the first tackle. Rip in and be in their face in the first 20. If we can get on top early we should be able to hold them off because I do not see them having the energy late in the game to come over the top of us after what they've been through these last few weeks

Wayne knows all of this. He'll get the boys rolling.

Another thing. These are the Penrith scores beginning with the game against us: 10, 8, 10. They do not have a lot of points in them against good teams. Today they struggled to penetrate a Storm team that were running on fumes with just 15 fit players. If we are on the ball they will not score a winning score on us. BUT that is a big if.

Penrith need to find a extra try or two I think to beat Souths. We know we can beat these guys but they know they can beat us too. I'm backing us all the way with our great defence and I know what our attack is capable of. However, I'm also praying to the Footy Gods that the 50 point rule continues to be sacred!

I think we come in about 50/50. I'm not sure who will win.

Souths have better completions, and attack. Penrith have better defence. But there's not much difference in either direction there.

Penrith will be more tired but Souths could get stage fright

Should be a genuine competitive Grand Final which is interesting for neutrals. Not sure who will win but Im sure it will be an all time classic and maybe give me a heart attack

After about 60 mins tonight I though whoever won would lose the Grand Final. Wayne as prepped them very well…That said, Panthers have it in them.

spewing we aren’t there, but this will be a cracker.
