35.5 Whole Factors (market place)
Climate: Saturday 90% likelihood of showers, as much as 10mm. Sunday 90% likelihood of showers as much as 15mm
Storm have received 18 of the final 21 face to face. Panthers received their conflict in Rd6 earlier this yr however haven’t received consecutive wins in opposition to them since 2005. 10 of the final 13 Premiers have gone into the Grand Remaining because the outright favorite.
Now we have the highest two groups on the desk, who have been additionally the highest two defensive groups. Each have additionally get pleasure from the week off.
Appears to be like a terrific match up of the 2 groups who ultimately have been the very best all season. Sadly the moist climate is more likely to play some position. My long run view throughout the previous few seasons has been that no one actually performs moist climate in addition to the Storm do, we solely have to return to Rd17 after they performed the Rabbits in Sydney, Rabbits the higher aspect by the primary 30 minutes however because the rain got here after which received heavier Storm’s self-discipline and discipline place took management they usually got here from behind to then go on and win by 6 factors. Total I feel the Storm have an edge in doubtless sport composure, a mixture of getting the likes of Smith and some skilled older heads round him plus the character of how Bellamy coaches, exhausting heads, sport give attention to, roll sleeves up, get on with it strategy.
Along with this (Bellamy’s strategy), we solely have to return to final weeks sport and take a look at how the Storm began, jumped straight out of the blocks and when whack, full tilt tempo, very bodily and ready to shift the ball, after which simply stored at all of it by the primary half. The second half began on the again of the Raiders clearly getting an enormous rev up at half time, and to their credit score they actually lifted for the primary 10 or so minutes however the Storm additionally went with them, held them, after which simply received on with the job. I assumed this sport was the strongest type reference of the season, I assumed the Raiders may properly have gone with them right here and it have been a lot nearer, the Storm simply lifted the bar. Curiously, in a stress prelim the Storm solely made 3 errors, it was a top quality effort.
The Panthers have received 17 straight, one can’t however respect the shape they’ve placed on the board. Their defence has been superb (total), Nathan’s kicking sport is excellent, the 9, 6 and 1 have been in intelligent type. However my fear is that they made 13 errors final week, scored 2 tries from excessive kicks (not usually a profitable tactic in finals footy in opposition to the higher defensive groups) and misplaced the second half 10-6. Of their prior sport they the Roosters put 20 factors on them in teh second half and almost stole the consequence. I assumed early into the second half final week with the sphere place that they’d and the errors and a few poor D that the Rabbits stored providing up they need to properly have gone on for a really snug 20 level margin win, but at 20-16 within the final 5 minutes the Rabbits (just like the Roosters) almost stole it, and the speaking level this week would have been all a few main choke by the Panthers having dominated the sport however not the scoreboard.
I feel the Storm will goal the air and each Panthers wingers. Conversely the Storms proper hand edge D whereas good final week has had some points, and is an edge the Panthers by way of Kikau like to focus on. Luai has additionally been a spot goal in defence by the final 3 to 4 video games, particularly in each semi finals and I’m certain the Storm as soon as once more goal one thing comparable. Each groups have been good by the center, total its a superb match up (and so any important or repeat errors will play a serious benefit to the opponent). By each current semi’s Bellamy has additionally proven his hand in desirous to shift and unfold on earlier performs, and in addition out of their very own finish, I’d recommend this most likely turns into unlikley in moist situations however the truth that the Storm have educated this and have it up their sleeve is a pleasant ace to play if required.
If I look again throughout the final 3 weeks, we may see into week 1 the Sharks have been shaky and the Eels up in opposition to, and so it performed out. In week 2 the Eels appeared on shaky type into their sport (Rabbits) and folded manner too rapidly. Into final week the prior proof urged the Rabbits had manner too many errors and defensive lapses in them, and so it unfolded (but they ended up method to shut).
Not solely have the Storm have received 18 of the final 21 clashes they’ve coated 13 of these final 18 wins, a major file (72%). Curiously the Panthers have did not cowl the road of their two semi ultimate wins. The Storm’s file as a fav (coated 12 of 15) and in addition a brief line fav (coated 6 of final 7 when fav at line lower than 4 pts) is superb.
Suppose the proof on the sphere by the final two weeks to my eye suggests the Panthers have finished very properly however would possibly now be able to be actually examined. Had 20 put by them within the second half two video games in the past, once more a poor second half final week (misplaced 10-6), and in each video games (particularly within the second halves of each video games) got here up with manner too many errors. Additionally, final week two of their tries have been off excessive kicks which in finals footy I don’t price extremely. Package deal this all up and I’ve some critical questions of them beneath stress right here dealing with the Storm’s regular bodily presence (over 80 minutes), self-discipline and management. Very moist climate and Cleary kicking time and time once more into the corners and a few high quality discipline place may properly take them a good distance into the sport, however I’m glad to stay with what and the place I feel this finals sequence total appears to be like as much as.
We will’t however take the Storm on what we have now seen over these previous few weeks, actually went up just a few gears for 30 to 40 minutes to get rid of the Eels after which simply went whack final week to essentially put it to the Raiders. They only look to have had a beautiful tapered prep and to be peaking on the proper time, so very typical Bellamy. I’m eager the Storm present us one thing just like final week and get on with getting the job finished.
Whole factors, I feel all of the indications are (two greatest defensive sides, tight sport in moist climate on doubtless slippery floor) that the full factors falls beneath 35.5
Man of the Match (Clive Churchill Medal) I need to be with Cameron Munster $9.50 Topsport (already shortening from $11.00). He and Smith look the apparent, Munster is due in an enormous Grand Remaining.
Any time strive scorer choices, appears to be like good situations for a Cameron Smith arrange crash ball to certainly one of his massive males near the road, and so Nelson Asofa-Solomona $9.00 (Tabcorp) and Jesse Bromwich $12.00 (Topsport) could be my speculators.
