Penrith Panthers Preview
It has been yet another dominant campaign for the Panthers, and they will be chasing history this weekend as they look to become the first team in four decades to win three consecutive premierships.
Their dominant season continued last weekend, as they booked their spot in a fourth straight Grand Final with a dominant 38-4 success against the Melbourne Storm, which was the biggest preliminary final winning margin in NRL history. A number of trends support the chances of a Panthers victory this weekend, as they come into the Grand Final after winning each of their last eight finals matches.
The Panthers have also excelled at Stadium Australia in recent history after winning nine of their last eleven. Penrith also have a fine record against the Broncos, as they have won five of their last six clashes against their rivals this weekend.
Brisbane Broncos Preview
Sunday will also be a date with destiny for the Broncos, as they will be competing in a Grand Final for the first time since 2015. Furthermore, they will be looking to end their 17-year wait for a title in the NRL. Brisbane was excellent in their preliminary final last Saturday, as they stormed to a 42-12 success against the Warriors.
Reece Walsh was in dominant form throughout that match, and he will need to be at his very best once again this weekend if the Broncos are to end their long wait for a premiership title. The Broncos have a fine record in Grand Finals since entering the NRL in 1988, as they have won on six of their seven appearances.
However, they haven’t won a final match in Sydney since 2008. It will be a special match for Kotoni Staggs, who will be making his 100th NRL appearance, while Adam Reynolds needs just one point to reach 200 points in finals matches.
NRL Grand Final Prediction
This is the showdown that all neutrals would have been hoping for, as the Broncos and Panthers have been the standout sides in the NRL throughout the season. However, it appears challenging to overlook the Panthers, as they have been excellent throughout the entire history in their bid to create rugby league history in Australia.
