Last-minute guide to betting on the NRL Grand Final

The trophy marks their third NRL Premiership after successes in 1999 and 2012, and helps secure benchmark status for Craig Bellamy and his team, while also sending off champion halfback Cooper Cronk in ideal fashion, with the long-time Storm and Maroons star calling time on his career at the club.

Australia's passion for professional sport is set to go off this weekend yet you might have missed one of the more unusual passions associated with NRL during the past few seasons.

"I just like to finish off by thanking one more person".

If you are going to overcome this mob, you'll have to do it the hard way, because North Queensland don't do freebies. From there, the Storm never looked like losing.

Slater picked up his second Clive Churchill medal after a fantastic performance at fullback and he was extremely emotional when speaking to Channel Nine's Brad Fittler.

It might not have been the most exhilarating grand final in recent memory, but rugby league fans still witnessed history on Sunday night.

Then a third came just before halftime after Cowboy Antonio Winterstein fumbled a grubber.

Paul Green has got them believing in their systems and therefore you have just got to bring your attitude and form and they have done that and they are willing to do that for each other for 80 minutes.

"The Big Three" then combined for the final try, Slater offloading to Tohu Harris who through a long pass out on the wing to Addo-Carr.

Averaging 1796 total run metres per game in this finals series, compared to Melbourne's 1569, it's via the engine room that the Cowboys can gain an advantage and ensure they hold their own in the arm wrestle at ANZ Stadium.

She has also previously spoken about Billy's high profile and that while he has a host of followers, she sees him only as a "great husband and dad" - not a superstar.

The Johnathan Thurston-less Cowboys are going to have a tough time of it according to the bookies, the best odds you can get for them is $4.

The Storm led 18-0 at halftime and although that margin was theoretically possible to breach, this was the Storm we were talking about here. Considering they lost 26-8 the last time these sides met suggests that everything will need to go right if the Cowboys are to pull off the upset. It was 24-6 after 63 minutes and the Cowboys' dream was effectively over. Regardless of that, they got the job done in emphatic style and have been head and shoulders above all their peers throughout the season.

"... Full credit to Melbourne though, they've had an unbelievable year and for parts of that game they were at their clinical best tonight".
