Both teams have tight defences and can keep multiple sets out on their line
CC Medal: JWH - think he comes out firing after missing a week and big matchup against Papalii
Easily the best prediction here. I would’ve given JWH the CC Medal

i think the outrage is a touch over blown, it's only an issue because of the Roosters taking advantage of BJ being a lazy cunt two tackles later, which itself had nothing to do with the refs and everything to do with the Raiders.
The Raiders weren't owed any points on that play, they'd had the running of the entire second half and couldn't score points and could barely earn repeat sets, it's highly likely no damage would've been done there either. In conclusion, i think saying the Raiders were robbed is hyperbolic, but it's undeniably a really shitty way to lose a grand final.
also, I'm seeing a lot about the trainer interference really early, but i was infinitely more surprised Soliola got away with taking out Keary's legs and sending him arse up like that, there's been blokes suspended this year for challenges on kickers that looked a lot less dangerous than that.
also also, from the ground, without bias of hearing commentators or reading statlines, Wighton winning the CCM was absolutely the right call in my opinion, was about the only player from either side to stand out throughout the entire game, and i was calling it at the 60 minute mark, I was worried because in a lot of those grindy games they just throw the medal at the winner's star player regardless of their performance *coughThurstoncough*, especially when Teddy decided to play the last 10 minutes after being unsighted for the first 70.
