The business end of the season!

Based on the team of the week results and some listener involvement, the TOTY is finalised! James Tedesco, Stephen Crichton and Nicho Hynes come into the fold, winning their voted categories, and the team is s-t-a-c-k-e-d! Once announced, the boys get into business. The in-depth breakdown of the NRL Finals for 2022 has begun, and we have all your Round 1 takes here! There is cash for jam in a finals series that could see all underdogs winning the first round! The lads break down every game for the round ahead and find it hard to split some of these teams apart.

Friday night is a blockbuster. The Battle of the West between the Penrith Panthers and Parramatta Eels is always enticing. The Panthers are back to full strength, and the Eels window is closing. It may come down to who is more desperate.

Then, Super Saturday. The Melbourne Storm are against their boggiest bogey teams in the Canberra Raiders. Both cold, wet and sad climates, the Raiders own the Storm at AAMI Park, going 4-0 in their last four visits. Will Canberra get it done again?
The Cronulla Sharks find themselves hosting at the Cove against the North Queensland Cowboys, and this game is so splitsville that the lads had to go player by player. EVEN THEN, it was hard to separate! Up the Cows, though.

The oldest rivalry in Rugby League pens another chapter in their book. The Sydney Roosters host the South Sydney Rabbitohs in the new Hen House, Allianz Stadium, for back-to-back weeks. And lastly, Sunday. Will Latrell have something more to give? Will the loss of Joey Manu mean the end of the Rooster’s season?

Only time will tell on every one of these games, so buckle up!
