As a neutral I want Parra to win. Penrith v Parra in week 1 of the finals as a rivalry blockbuster is a lot more interesting than Penrith v Melbourne.

Parra seem to give storm trouble but I reckon storm are going to be right up for this after getting beaten at their own game last Friday

Storm by 12

Parra no chance to make top 4 according to some Penriff flop last week. 43% chance according to logic.
Penriff currently scheming up a way to cheat their way past their hoodoo team.

Looking forward to this one. In a similar type of game as round 3, Parra by 4.
Then a shot at knocking Penrith off for the 3rd time this year.

Parra have been no chance of making the top four from everyone for quite some time. Parra will be butted sore by Melbourne, and then will start to doubt their chances.

For a team that has been whooping all comers, Parra stand at the precipice here. Win and play Panthers in week 1, a game they'll have some confidence about, misplaced more than likely but that's another matter. Confidence is all. Lose and they finish 6th, facing Souths or Roosters in sudden death, a quite different scenario altogether. I think the pressure will be too great. A serious test looms for their men up front here.

Storm will still finish 5th if they lose this, and have the Raiders in Melbourne, altogether a more pleasant thought than what the Eels face.

We have Jarryd Arthur in the team today. Confidence is sky high!

Hughes is a huge loss, he nearly won the game by himself last week and was the reason the roosters didn't win comfortably.

Still think it will be very tight but Parra have the edge now.
