- Roosters v Storm
- Brisbane v North Queensland
- Bulldogs v St George
- Cronulla v South Sydney
To be honest, one of the Roosters, Brisbane and North Queensland will be Premier's this year. Hoping for the Cowboys, but we'll see. All three are way above the pack in terms of the numbers (hard to see a dark horse).
Looking at the fixtures below - its got the makings of one of the all-time great Final-Series.
- West Coast v Hawthorn
- Fremantle v Sydney
- North Melbourne v Richmond
- Western Bulldogs v Adelaide.
This year has the making of a time from outside the top four winning with Richmond Adelaide and North Melbourne all having beaten the teams in the top four. But we'll see if the finals experience counts for something. If Sydney don't win, I'll be cheering for Fremantle or Adelaide.
As an aside, was disappointed with Steve Smith in the last One Day international for not recalling Stokes. It wasn't a good look for the game (or Smith). Read more here.
