NRL Grand Final Preview

St Helens retained their Betfred Super League crown at Old Trafford last weekend and Australian champions Penrith Panthers offered to do the same in the NRL Grand Final against Parramatta Eels on Sunday morning.

The Panthers appear in their third consecutive title, having lost to Melbourne in 2020 in agonizing fashion before going one better in 2021 with a 14-12 win over South Sydney at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.

The Grand Final returns to its usual home, Stadium Australia in Sydney, after last year’s temporary move to Queensland due to Covid-19 restrictions, and Penrith, who finished eight points better than Parramatta in the regular season , is the eight-point favorite to win a fourth title.

As Penrith becomes a regular in the Grand Final, Parramatta are in their first decider since 2009 and are looking for their first Premiership success in 36 years.

The pair met in week one of the playoffs when Penrith ran out 27-8 winners at BlueBet Stadium, and their big-game experience could be decisive this morning. Support the Panthers to earn up to two converted scores.

With just 80 minutes left between Leigh or Batley and a Super League spot next year as they battle it out for a top spot in Sunday’s Championship Grand Final at Headingley (Premier Sports 1, 6.30pm ).

That Leigh is in the promotion decider isn’t exactly a surprise given the amount of money owner Derek Beaumont has poured into proven Super League and NRL talent in pursuit of a return to the game. top of rugby league.

The Centurions, coached by former player and Wigan boss Adrian Lam, have won 26 of their 27 regular season games and beat York 70-10 in last week’s playoff semi-finals.

They also beat Batley 64-6 just three weeks ago and the part-time Bulldogs, who knocked out Featherstone in the last four, are 40-point underdogs to bring an even bigger shock to Headingley.
