No changes for Ricky Stuart’s men, with Josh Hodgson (ankle) and Blake Austin (hand) both pulling up well after playing busted last week. Austin picked up a knock to the leg last week, but is not in doubt.

Totally depend on Refs.

If they ref the ruck and the hold downs, if they stop the wrestle, and the illegalities - then Canberra.

Otherwise - Melbourne.

Pity to end like this with the errors and penalties, but the Raiders fans have had a good season for 2016.

Raiders looked flat. Storm did to but were more clinical with their play almost as if both sides were saving themselves for next week.
Nissan Cedric had a game he wont forget on the wing for the Raiders.
On last nights effort if the sharks turn up to play the storm are going to need all their bag of tricks.
Shame about all the handling errors and penalties though.

Its a long season. Some say its better not to be there than to lose in the penultimate week.

I'm not too sure on that ... :)

I'm sure most neutrals would have liked to have seen a Sharks/Raiders final, but the Storm did enough in trademark style. That poor lad is going to have some sleepless nights.

Depressingly, I can see the Storm turning over the Sharks too. Are they favourites?
