Well well, the grandfinals have come and gone! No more AFL and NRL , what are we going to do on our weekends. I certainly am dissappointed as I'm not going to hold my breath for the A-League triple header on a Sunday, I'd rather go to sleep. What did we think of the finals?
The AFL final was fantastic! The weather played a huge part in the way the game was played. The players stepped up and produced such an exciting final that the final margin(12) of the game was the biggest lead a team had. Paul Chapman being a deserved winner for best on ground.
On the otherhand the NRL grandfinal was a bit of a snorefest. Melbourne dominated throughout the match, not allowing Parramatta to play their razzle dazzle style of football which got them through this far in the finals. Outstanding performances by Greg Inglis and Adam Blair and not to mention Cooper Cronk carried the team throughout the match. Cooper Cronk is the most underrated player in rugby league these days, this year I feel he is ready to have a crack at international level. How did Billy Slater get the Clive Churchill medal? He didn't play at his outstanding best! He missed a crucial tackle on Eric Grothe and dropped the bomb when the pressure was on, which led to big Moi Moi's try. Does anyone else feel that try should not have been a try. Moi Moi's huge leg was seen to be in touch when trying to place the ball down!! What is the touchie looking at? Do we really need these gooses running along the touchline? They do nothing at all, pointless I tell you! So when you think about it, the controversial penalty on Moi Moi is just a case of justice served!
There is still plenty of sport to talk about and I'm sure something exciting will happen in the A-League for us to talk about or NOT!
