Interesting to see the Walker brothers have gotten the Jets to the Grand Final. Haven't been able to watch many games of there's.

Hearts going Cowboys but I think the Broncos will have the edge after an extra week off. Plus the fact that uncle Wayne hasn't lost a single Grand Final his teams have made. Think this is his eighth one...

I have been noting a pattern in Nth Qld Cowboys games
In most games they have won, they are usually behind in the first half
But end up dominating the opposition in the 2nd half.

So because the Cowboys are usually slow out of the Blocks
I will put a lazy $20 @$6 fror a half / full time double of Broncos/Nth Qld

Hard to pick, Thurston deserves a title, but think his teammates might let him down, will support the cows, but brisbane has been the form team all year, the last cpl of year the best side has won the GF.

I've gone:
Penrith
Ippy
Broncos @ $4.60

For those that haven't seen the Jets, they're a different side and may surprise Newcastle.
I'm far from a Broncos supporter and dislike them but I'm going for them as NQ joined when the Warriors did and can't have them winning before us

Jets are good to watch. They had just had a try scored against them last week. They went for a short kick off, regained, threw the ball around and 3 tackles later were under the posts

If it counts, Bennett lost when co-coach of the Raiders in 1987 and also coached a Souths Magpies side that was thrashed by Wynnum-Manly in 1984

That's my dilemma, don't particularly like the Broncos but the thought of the Cowboys and especially Jim the Mossie getting a premiership before the Warriors just doesn't bear thinking of.

First time i've seen the Jets play and like the look of them - they certainly deserve their half time lead. So does anyone know how this state league final works - does Q/land and NSW each have their own competition and then the winners of each play each other? Does that mean that Brisbanefe/Gold Coast/Cowboys feeder clubs plays Queensland Cup not with the other NRL clubs? :rolleyes:

It's a tens trophy according to Gary Belcher.

Maybe that's why we haven't won it yet. We haven't had enough players on the field.;)

The Jets have been refreshing to watch. They haven't been as crazy has been made out; but still refreshing to watch.

The drop outs and kick offs are a lot better too watch instead of just hoofing it down field.

Yes, QLD and NSW Cup grand finals were last week.

Correct on the feeder club thing too. I believe Brisbane have 3 (maybe more) feeder clubs. Ipswich is one if them. The hooker Matt Parcell played NRL this year and has signed with Manly. The fullback Carlin Anderson is signed to the Broncos, kid has real talent.

Andrew Johns has been pulled from the coverage today.
https://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=11523694

Hopefully he does get poached by Fox. Sure he'll be on the shows with his brother acting the clown but the Fox coverage around the games are pretty good. It would be good to have the sessions he sometimes does with Cronks kicks etc and where they land and the impact on the opposing fullback.

Congratulations to the Jets and the Walker brothers.

Been enjoyable watching them after hearing about them quite a lot of NRL 360.

A nice concept having the NSW and Queensland Cup teams facing off.
