NRL Grand Final 2020
After a year that stretched the players, coaches and administrators in every single aspect and after a season that saw a great number of those involved in the sport have to give up so much, it only seems fitting that the 2020 Grand Final, a celebration of the sport, is to be held between the teams that finished first and second in the league.
Whilst Penrith had things relatively straightforward in terms of been able to stay in the town and to play matches at home, things where anything but straight forward for the Storm who had to up and leave the state of Victoria move to Brisbane up in Queensland and play matches on the road.
With players away from their families and friends for so long, it would almost be fitting for Melbourne to pick up the title but sport is never played on sentiment and the Panthers will be going all out for the win in what is all set to be a fantastic match up.
The Panthers have built their season around their star half back Nathan Clearly but they are so much more than that.
With a great mix of speed, power, and ability they have been the perfect package this season and they are well worth what is perhaps a surprise trip to the Grand Final.
An appearance in the biggest game of the NRL season is never a surprise for the Storm but with them been in a stage of flux, there were probably not too many tipping them at the start of the season but without the likes of Slater and Cronk, there next generation of stars have stepped up and have fitted into the Melbourne way of playing with ease.
The Storm are all about structure and been more than the parts whilst Penrith are all about the brilliance of Clearly and players making the right decisions at the right moments and that mix should be for an exciting game and one that will lily ebb and flow to be a close game throughout.
