I think to be honest you can actually throw all the stats out in the GF to be honest,anything can happen and it showed the last how many yrs!!Yes the Storms have shown to be unstoppable with their all round game!!This Broncos unit showed us against the Dogs werent no fluke,lets match these guys up with game breakers!!O.K there's not much of a weakness in the Storms but apparently Dragons found abit on the left side,and guess who is marking on the left hand side,yes Justin Hodges the Best Centre this yr,sorry Gaz!!!Shane Webcke's last game should be very very interesting!!!Just remember how many State of Origin players in the Broncos n how many in Storms aswell,another words big time players,also the stat with Dally M winner not being able to back it up with the Premiership Cup is still on the line!!!Cant see Crocker playin,it would be a miracle n a big blow below the belt buckle no doubt!!

Lockyer/Berrigan/Hodges/Tait/Tupou/Hunt/!!
Smith/Cronk/Inglis/King/Turner/Slater!!

Webcke/5 Cents/Carrol/Thorn/Thaiday!!
Cross/Crossman/Kaufusi/Scott/Turner!!

The Key for Broncos of course plain n simple forwards get on top n Lockyer does what he do best,for them winning if not then Storms will hold their own in all the other areas,altough no teams has got Tait n Hodges n their dispense,big n fast with all the tricks in the book,also Hunt has been a rock in the fullback,,i have been impressed with him!!GF are all about MENTAL TOUGHNESS!!

Re: NRL Grand Final opening line

It is going to be one helluva game!!
Doesn't look like I'll end up going.

Anyway, Melbourne have been in cruise control for the last (probably) 3 months and even against St George looked like they were only in 3rd gear.
Add to that the fact Greg Inglis had one of his quietest games of the year.
And they still got the job done relatively easy.

Brisbane been in good form since they last met Melbourne. (That was the turning point in their season)
And in the second half against the Dogs where AWESOME!!
Would have steamrolled a "best of the world" 17.

Head to head this season is 2-0 to Melbourne.
BUT both those 2 matches where played during Brisbane's 5 match losing streak and both where tough 6 point victories too the Storm... 10-4 / 18-12.

If Brisbane play the way they played that 2nd half against the Dogs they'll win.
If Melbourne play at full strength they'll win.

If they both play as above...

I'm unsure as too what to do.
I have Storm outright @ $4.25 - taken before they played St. George.

The main reason I did that was so that if this GF did take place I would hedge big time.
Now I'm unsure.

BTW, I hope those bitches down at the NRL headquarters are happy with their decision to not play a GF outside of Sydney till at least 2012.

IMO, it would be better to have this game played at Suncorp in front of a PACKED 55, 000 as oppose to maybe 50, 000 at Telstra Stadium. :retard:

My signature sucked so I made this one instead.

Re: NRL Grand Final opening line

It should be a cracker of a game,the lost of Crocker could be Huge!!!Broncos are mentally alot tougher then the Dragons,they also have big time players which is the key!!Agree Storms played Broncos when theyre were mentally down,also not too sure if they were fully strength aswell,plus Shaun Berrigan is on FIRE!!!!I would hedge if i was you mate,cos i dont think its gonna be easy for the Storms!!

It would be very unfair if this was played at Suncorp due to Storms finishing Minor Premiers,should always stick with Tradition imo!!!!leave it as it is!!

I think those odds are about spot on .. Melbourne are going to be tough to break down .. They clearly have so much faith in each other and the structure that's got them to this point. Seems strange to be say, but the Broncos probably have a little bit more 'x' factor about them .. ie a couple more individuals who're capable of creating something from nothing. But then again Billy Slater and Greg Inglis have that quality in spades.

Whatever happend to predictable, boring Brisbane??

I think Brisbane will have to do something to take the Storm out of their 'comfort zone' (if there is such a thing in rugby league?!). It'll be fascinating to watch.

Re: NRL Grand Final opening line

Going to hedge.

Knowing me I will all out hedge and if Melbourne wins I'll break even.
If Brisbane wins.

Been searching for this Broncos winning chant.
I need to know so I have something to yell at 9pm Sunday night.
So far all I got is the bottom couple lines in my sig which is probably not even it.
Will e-mail the guys at the Broncos website for it.
They should know.

Re: NRL Grand Final opening line

Mate what about this old doozie from 1992 .. sung by the "Ipswich Connection" (Alan Langer and the Walters brothers) .. remember ..?

"Hey hey we're the Broncos .. and we're not horsing around ..
we're too busy training .. trying to win the Winfield crown ...!"
