    NRL Finals (and Union tests)

    Decided we can't leave it to the Victorians to only discuss that other really weird brand of football. So here's a thread primarily on the NRL finals. Now that Manly are most unfortunately out (more through the vagaries of other results than losing to the Storm) I am supporting the Parra Eels and I am glad to see they easily polished off the Gold Coast Titans last night. It would be neat to see a team which finished 8th go all the way to win the Grand Final. Can they do it?

    BTW in case anyone's interested there's also a Aus - NZ rugby union test tonight in Windy Wellington. Loser get's the wooden spoon in the Tri-Nations. If NZ should lose (perish the thought), methinks that is the end of Graham Henry's All Black coaching career.

    The Eels? No way...the Storm will win this premiership! I'm guessing the Dragons will win against the Broncos, so a very exciting semi Storm-Dragons is in prospect!

    All Blacks won convincingly + league draw.

    NZ 33 - Australia 6. Yay! Yes, RD, Dragons are out so Parra and Bulldogs only Sydney teams left and will play each other in one semi. Other is indeed Melbourne - Brisbane. So final will be a Sydney team vs a non-Sydney team. Should be interesting!
