I didn’t see Geelong and Sydney as Grandfinalists early on. It doesn’t seem surprising. They are the two best run clubs in the competition. So it’s not expected that Geelong would win the grand final, but there it is. They will.
In the NRL it will be interesting to see if the two teams who have had the week off will win. I’m tipping they will. Penrith are too good, and Parramatta can’t sustain the intensity they’ve shown over the last two games.
