The top 2 teams that ended the regular rounds of footy have ended up in the Grand Final and to mnay that is no surprise. The Storm had a few shaky weeks leading to the finals but since then they have shown the quality that is expected of them. Des Hasler on the other hand has molded a team that was struggling last year and with some shrewd purchases has many of the pundits jumping on the Bulldogs band wagon.

The Storm do have the Slater, Cronk and Smith and they will be out again to show why they are considered the best spine for years. The real question is whether the Strom will be able to contain not only the enigmatic Barba, but a underrated forward pack that has continually caused problems for opposing teams. What ever the result it will be a cracking game and one that is not to be missed.

As for my opinion, it may not matter much at this end of the season as we all have decided who we favour, But I will lean towards to Dogs, they have achieved so much this year under the guidance of Hasler would like to see them cap it off with a great win.

    Can't put my tips on because 'the match hasn't been set'. What is this crap? When are you people going to introduce an element of professionalism to this site?
