is that 25-26 yrs since Canberra was last in a final?..... anyway well done Raiders, happy for Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad what a huge year for the youngster...... but atm Im on the Storm band wagon my second fav team

Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad must feel like he hit the jackpot! Goes from Warriors reserve grade to starting fullback at the Raiders, a new 3 year contract and pay rise plus making the grand final in his first year at the club.

Waddya reckon to those pommy bastards now, Bruce? 😉 🤣🤣🤣
Imagine what we could do with Josh Hodgson and some of those other Poms. Probably ruin their careers and send them home broken and bewildered like Sammy Tompkins, he should have listened to Russell Crowe when he told him to go to any team but his good mate Eric's.

Damn, didn't know Vunivalu was out. Guess they will play Sandor Earl or bring Chambers back.
Looks like its Chambers in, i think i would have preferred Earl although Chambers on the wing not centre, interestingly zero tackle has roosters 68% probability win.. Good forward battle but think Roosters have better backline, fingers crossed for a storm win although i have a feeling they just might.

Bartlett seems like a weak link on the wing there. Very little strength or step in her game.

Our forwards are really good.

Poko is also very impressive

Thirty year anniversary of the greatest grand final of all time. They came from nowhere that season, they can again. I am just so happy for Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad. What an absolute embarrassment for SK and the management, absolutely waste of talent. If I can see it Robinson must be able to as well.
Beside waking up at a mates place for a Kiwis test in England that 89 Grand Final was the first game of league I watched. Been hooked ever since. Can remember the build up all week building hype. Then the game delivered big time.

Of course that then meant waiting 6 months until the next season.

Enjoyed last nights game. A big crowd with the Canberra faithful out in force trying to push their side to a Grand Final. That field looks a lot better when it is full.

Raiders were up for it and got into Souths but couldn't finish off the last passes etc. That gave Souths some chances to get back into the game, they also had issues getting that last pass.

Souths needed another strike player, Walker was their most dangerous player last night. Reynolds is good at getting a side around the field and kicking but isn't the most creative. Roberts would of helped. It will be interesting to see how Bennett recruits now after having a year to review his squad.

The Raiders have given us one piece of the puzzle for Grand Final week. They have also given us a potential fairy tale for this year the other side to be sorted out tonight is going to be one of the big favoured sides.

The Warriors are playing very well, hope they can sustain it. Our forwards have bullied Brisbane.

Jees these warriors girls are genuinely impressive. Very low error rate, massive hits on defense and smart game control and management.

Who's their coach?
Is it Luisa Avaiki?
