    Hey everyone, as the Australians and Kiwis of you probably know, the NRL season is coming to a close. The preliminary finals of Sharks v Storm and Manly v Warriors are hotly anticipated. So what do you NRL followers make of the finals?

    Bold: My tip
    Italic: The actual winner

    I reckon:
    Preliminary 1: Sharks v Storm
    Preliminary 2: Manly v Warriors

    Grand Final: Sharks v Manly

    As a Bulldogs supporter, none of this really matters, but whatever.

    UPDATE: The Storm have destroyed the Sharks 28-0.

    Preliminary 2: Manlyv Warriors

    Grand Final: Storm vs Warriors


    Yeah call me crazy, also these were my tips even though the Storm are currently 16-0 up.

    It's a miracle how the Warriors have come so far given their horrid track record outside of NZ.

    Ruthless performance by the Storm, although as much as I hate NZ as a country I'd love the 8th place side to get up in a GF, would leave a good feeling in the heart :).

    Warriors vs Sea Eagles
    Warriors vs Storm

    Wow, Sharks just got decimated. As much as I like cinderella stories Storm is unstoppable with this kind of form. They will definitely beat NZ in the grand final (or Manly).

    I am a Broncos supporter so it's kinda sad to see them lose to Storm on such a small margin :(

    here, all fixed:
    Broncos vs Storm

    Storm looked a bit shaky at the end of that match though, a few people will be out of the granny as well.

    I think Manly will get over the Warriors, actually. But it won't matter coz the Storm will smash them come grand final time.
    Im more excited for the AFL grand final tbh, Carn the Cats!

    No, carn the Hawks. I go for the Pies, and any team that beat us should be able to win the GF. Also Lance Franklin is just gg for the Cats.

    For anyone who for some reason missed the grand final, Manly thumped Storm 40, the biggest WTF moment in NRL history imo. Without Cameron Smith Storm is never as strong but the performance last night was easily their worst in the entire season. I am thoroughly dissappointed.
