    In 54 years, 51 of them in the same competition, these sides have never before met in a finals match (despite finishing 1 and 2 in '89). They've only made the finals in the same year 3 times before, 1989, 2014 and 2018.

    I do like the Pennies to be honest, and if Souths don’t make it I do hope the Panthers take the title ahead of the Storm and Raiders. The panthers are a people’s team much like Souths, they are chock full of juniors which is an admirable quality and deserved of a title.

    If you'd come here with this spiel in the first place, rather than the one you did, you'd have been more warmly welcomed.

    Are you taking about Burton? He won't be in the halves anyways, have you seen how tall he is?, im pretty sure centres or lock for Burton, Isiah captaining at no.8, straight swap for Tamou

    I’m just saying it is bad timing to have two very, very good number 6’s at the same time.

    I feel for Burton he has a really tough decision to make in the near future.

    I don’t know who is his manager is, but no manager worth his salt is going to accept a situation where Burton can only play in our top 17 as a lock or back rower.

    Burton is a potential superstar in the halves and that it where the big dollars are.

    I truly hope he stays because he is a special talent, but I will understand if he goes to secure a halves spot elsewhere.

    My original point being it is so sad we have two quality five eights in the same era and two into one doesn’t fit..

    IMO, the team that lets in the least amount of points over the weekend will win the grand final.

    The managers role is to manage, not to sign. I am sure another position will be made for Matt, and he will re-sign.

    When do the match officials get announced. I so hope we don’t get Ashley Klein. My son sent me a post last week in respect to our record under Klein and it is not good as we are all only too well aware.

    According to my son if you take out the games we have won under Klein this season we would be 4-23 so much less than the 30% quoted below.

    If we cut out the early nerves and play for the full 80 we win.

    We have been officiated by Klein this year, and we have won.

    I suspect we will. Rabbitohs had Sutton last game, very unlikely they'll get him again. Klein was quite good at the weekend I thought.

    Yeah im not sure you get what im saying, yes he plays 5/8th now, but burton is already 6'foot 2, and still growing, he'll end up a ball playing lock like Jake turbo, or Steve Carter at his later years

    Who cares who is reffing, we are a disciplined unit and that shouldn’t change at all, don’t give the refs an excuse to blow a penalty.

    Play our best and be disciplined in everything we do on the field to affect the result in our favour, we have been the benchmark this year, let’s do it again Saturday night !!!

    I keep seeing this get said about Burton, that he’s still growing. But most males have finished growing by 16-18. It would be very rare for someone to still be growing at 20, not far off 21.

    Burton might fill out more depending on the weights regime he does, but it’s unlikely he’s still growing.

    I disagree. My youngest nephew, aged 20, is still growing.
