Much as I hate to say it, the Bulldogs have to be favoured. They have been playeing well over the last 3-4 months.

The other half of the equation is a lot less clearcut- Melbourne have had a couple of dry patches lately, Canberra and Cronulla are just too inconsistent. Nth Queensland may be a bit of a smokey, but not sure if they could keep up their form into the finals. Brisbane have not impressed since SOO.

That leaves Manly and South Sydney. The Rabbitohs have been impressive and Manly have, too.

My prediction is Canterbury to beat Souths in extra time, but would love to see it go the other way.

It would be a fairytale if Souths could make the grand final after 41 years when they last won the Grand Final

Heart says 'Storm', brain says 'Manly'; so I'll agree with you wwe84: Sea Eagles vs Bulldogs, with Bulldogs to win GF by 7.

Partner (ex NSW) says Manly... and I think they will play Rabbitohs !
But as I'm officially over any form of football after those dastardly Magpies beat the Eagles last night.. and the Crows beat the Dockers the night before...
