He was the right call. Had a pretty good year imo. sh*t just happens sometimes.

Go Souths I guess
I honestly don't know who to go for. I like GF's when It's like that. A Penrith win will probably be good for the game in WS, but a Souths win would be equally as good too.

Interesting choice of ref for the GF. Klein was better yesterday and I thought Sutton was worse. Sutton seems the go to man so it'll probably be him.

Least both results I’m happy with. Penrith deserve one had they not copped injuries would have been Winx odds this year. South’s play exciting football with Walker, Cook, etc

In Melbourne? The audience will be halved.
With nothing on as the AFL is done? You have increased the viewing in Sydney and partially decreased the viewing in Melbourne if any at all. Plenty of people don’t watch games with Melbourne involved albeit I haven’t personally had an issue this year at least

FMD that was a very ordinary performance by the storm. Good on Penrith, clearly the better side. Storm didn't turn up. From the 3rd minute mark when they let a bomb drop and turned it over, you could tell they weren't 'on'.

How many try opportunities did they drop. Reimus Smith was atrocious. Munster & grant were really poor and addo-carr and Papen were almost non existent.

As I said, Penrith played the better footy and deserved the win. Was a classic defensive game from both sides. Some great last line tackles to stop tries.

Great result. Entertaining game but the ball handling was atrocious.
I reckon the Penrith Parramatta game was better quality.

Yes it was a tense prelim final but the referee didnt help both teams just layed all over each other and it was a dogs breakfast.

And as you said way more handling errors then what there was last week

Both are garbage unfortunately. Grant Atkins or Matt Checcin would have been better

That game yesterday the ruck was a dogs breakfast sutton didnt want to blow anything and klein is useless who must have dirt on someone at NRL HQ to keep getting games he is just incompetent

Full credit to Penrith who probably played as good a defense as I’ve seen in years. Storm just weren’t good enough & the errors came on the back of built up pressure.

Penrith to win the big dance.
