Here are some of the highlights from the first Preliminary Final of the 2017 National Rugby League (NRL) Finals Series between the Melbourne Storm and the Brisbane Broncos held at AAMI Park, where the Storm marched into their second-straight grand final. Enjoy!
Earlier tonight, I called the first preliminary final of the 2017 National Rugby League (NRL) Finals Series between the Melbourne Storm and the Brisbane Broncos, which was held at AAMI Park in Melbourne.
The Storm have a fantastic record as we all know against the Broncos, winning 24 of their last 30 matches against the Broncos, including 22 of their last 27, 19 of their last 23, 14 of their last 17, 12 of their last 14, four of their last five, and their last two matches.
However, despite the Storm winning five of their eight matches, which includes five of their last seven, against the Broncos at AAMI Park, the Broncos have won two of their last three matches at AAMI Park, and lost narrowly to the Storm in Melbourne back in Round Three.
So, will the Storm, the best team in attack and defence move through to a second-straight grand final appearance? Or, will the Broncos, the team I tipped at the start of the year, move through to their second grand final in three years?
On what will be a big night in so many ways regardless of the outcome, find out who wins right here, and enjoy my call!
