Absolutely gutted with the final two teams. Bunch of cheats.
Whoever said cheating doesn't pay.
The Storm can afford to keep the big three under the cap these days, and sneak some big forwards in, because they paid them so damn much outside the cap years back that the players are still well ahead.
The Sharks may no longer have peptides in their systems, but the bulk put on and the fitness that they were able to achieve while they were taking them are still there.
Like an Olympic athlete who gets his edge with banned substances, then stops taking them a few months out to avoid testing positive. The physical benefits remain for some time.
In my opinion this final and they eventual winners Title are tainted.
Can't wait until the 'Big Three' and Gallen retire, so I can at least admire these teams for their effort and ability.
Until then, I can't have any respect for these teams.
This is the worse possible Grand Final for me. Nobody to get behind. A non-event on what should be the biggest stage.
Is it just me, or have the rest of you moved on?
My worst possible grand final in recent times was the magical bracelet bunnies. The NRL is full of dodgy dodge their integrity unit is their busiest department. Who cares. It is what it is - professional sport. But now and again we see some awesome rugby league. The storm showed everyone how to do it and they're still taking everyone to school. Hard luck raiders big game big nerves got them at the end of the day. 42-0. Harden up warriors. In the meantime fox memorials on Maori tv and I like to watch that for a bit of realness
