Earlier tonight, I called the first semi-final of the 2017 National Rugby League (NRL) Finals Series between the Brisbane Broncos and the Penrith Panthers, which was held at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.
The Broncos came into this semi-final after losing narrowly to the Sydney Roosters in last week’s qualifying final (24-22), while the Panthers won last week’s Elimination Final against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles (22-10).
In recent matches between the two teams, the Panthers have won six of their 10, including five of their last eight, four of their last six, and two of their last three. However, Broncos won their only meeting this year before tonight back in Round 9 (32-18).
So, in their first finals meeting since 2003, would it be the Broncos or the Panthers who would make the preliminary final to face the Melbourne Storm next week?
Find out right here, and enjoy my call!
