Would like to see Manly get up against South’s, Melbourne should easily roll Panthers on current form

Most of Sydney will disagree ;) but Manly was my club before the Warriors so I agree.:D
Most of South’s fan base are passed out or too hopped up on something to have an opinion ;)

Don’t know why everyone’s on the Manly bus.

They got hammered by 28 points only 2 weeks ago after the number one coach in the games shut them down. Bennet will do the same.

Storm vs South’s final.

Maybe cause Warriors fans are heart vs head. Still dislike them cause Russel crowe had to get his bodyguards to hold Eric Watson to get a few blows in iirc.
*to be fair, many of us would consider punching Eric Watson of the opportunity arose I'd say

Storm, Panthers too beat up from last weeks game.

Manly, cause above.

IF (allcaps!) Penrith get up and beat the Storm I predict they lose the final to Souths - off the back of 2 tough games where their forwards get beaten up and with that psychological issue of having 'played their final' against the Storm. Bennett will pick away at Cleary in the Grand Final Week pressers - it would be beautiful. And Reynolds, Gagai, Su'a, Marshall & Bennett all leave the club on a fairytale win. Latrells career defining moment will end up being that hit on Manu that denied him the chance to take the park and win the GF. So much story there.

Either that or the Storm puts on a combined hundred points in the next two games regardless of who the opposition are - and the dynasty continues! 😂😂😂

Finals footy usually becomes coaches month... Out of the 4 left, 3 coaches have more than 1 prem ring each.
Ivan's the odd 1 out.. and up against Bellamy who I reckon is a brilliant tactician, I don't think Ivan will be able to out smart him. The other game, Wayne v Des, should be interesting, but I think the week rest might just see the bunnies hm..

Looking forward to these two games this weekend.

Luckily I was talking to a work colleague and he asked what day the games were on thinking it was Saturday, Sunday. That got me doubting myself a bit as I was expecting Friday, Saturday. Luckily I checked as I didn't know Saturday's game was earlier than normal, 6pm rather than 9:50pm.

Tonight's game is interesting. Manly looked terrible at the start of the year until Tommy T came back. Saw a stat their record against the top sides isn't that good. They beat the Roosters but they were fighting on with a huge injury toll. A stat has come out that after Origin that Souths record is similar or better than the Storms. Bennett going about his business quietly getting his side ready for a Grand Final.

The other game with the two early season favourites. The Storm are the most likely but it will be interesting to see how much the Panthers get up after losing the other week and seeing if they can keep their season going.

Should be two great games, i just hope the refs don't muck it up. Let the two best teams go to the final.
