Had a bad feeling that was going to be costly.
Penrith will probably go in as small favourites with the bookies but feels like a 50/50 game.
I'm actually stumped how Penrith are favourites to be honest. They have next to zero attacking flair at the moment. Somehow despite my Storm playing their worst game in 5 years they still only got over for 2 tries. Given how many times we shot ourselves in the foot (and the subsequent dropping of heads) they still couldn't get through. In the end we fall short by what, a metre.....
Penrith's defense on the other hand was ridiculously good. Having said they I still think there should have been about 5-6 more 6 agains to the Storm for holding down. They were dead set on there for 3 hours sometimes and it was just "play on". Outside of that I didn't think the ref was that bad. Things didn't go our way but I every replay I looked at I thought "yep, that was there".
Back to the GF, Souths seem to have a lot of attacking options for mine. This is a genuine 50/50 game but based on what we've seen over the past 3 weeks I'm favouring Souths.... just not by much!
