Two cracking games and really can't pick a winner in either.

Canberra are the better team this year but Souths are gritty enough and have the class to convert opportunities into points. If Souths let Canberra blow them off the park early, I'd say they'll struggle to win but if they turn up and get into the grind from minute 1, it'll go down to the wire. Tipping the Green Machine.

On Roosters Vs Melbourne, I'd ordinarily say no one can beat this Roosters team but Melbourne aren't just any team and you can bet after last year and recent matches they will be loading every bullet they have to take a shot at the Roosters. Any team with Cam Smith in it can't be written off, he's just too smart and I expect this will go down to the wire but I'll be tipping the Roosters.

The Raiders need to blow the Rabbitohs off the park.

They can't get into a grind, they don't have the halves to get them home in such a big game. They beat Melbourne thanks to a rare mistake. If that didn't happen, they would have lost. They won't get so lucky a second time in a row.

May have lost.

Hoping to see Cronk and the Roosters get the wood over Storm again. We might just see Smith lose his cool and boilover if things aren't going his way. What a sight that would be.

Raiders/Rabbitohs might be a bit sloppy, both teams playing like they are afraid of a choke. I'm hoping the Raiders win, but I don't think they will beat Melbourne or Roosters in the GF.

Roosters/Storm I think the intent will be obvious very early, I'm predicting an early try, in the first few minutes, and that team will win the game. It will be tight, but convincing by the winner, who will go on to win the GF. Melbourne unfortunately.

Yeah even if the Storm win it will be good value. The Roosters forum nearly always blames conspiracy. Still, go Roosters.

Would love to see Cronk put a choke hold on smith again only for smith to lose his cool and throw a slap again.

If you're watching the viking clap tonight and interested in where it originated you might like this article. The video at the end is well worth watching all the way through as it shows the original chant being performed in full.
