Regardless of both the Rabbits and Manly side we would have to go in as favourites.

They have had two close games this year so hoping for another epic battle. A few grubs involved too so there is judiciary potential.

Interestingly, if the roosters do end up making the grand final it means we won’t play another team this year that we’ve beaten yet.

I'm in Melbourne at the moment, and it really is quite sad how little attention the game gets here.

In the Herald Sun you have to wade through 10 pages of AFL to finally find a story on the Storm.

In the Age, it's similarly place, a tiny story about Addo-Carr, after a half page spread on the netball.

Neither paper mentioned the Souths v Manly game.

They've long held themselves up as the sports capital of Australia, neigh of the world. But really they are just the AFL capital.

Tonight's challenge:

Which Burgess will end up suspended and why?

#notasegment
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

My (hopeful) predictions for tonight - a ‘grand final’ style match with both teams struggling to stand at the end. The rabbits to take the win by 2, with Sam Burgess on report for a high shot, missing the prelim. Adam Reynolds to tweak his back again, leading to a week of turmoil, with a last minute exit, Adam Douhie to halves, and some random replacing Johnston on the wing, who moves to fullback, only to highlight his actual lack of talent in a spine position next week.

Pretty average crowd at Stadium Australia, considering it is an elimination final between two Sydney teams.

The crowd isn't too bad, maybe 20,000... but it gets lost in the Olympic stadium.

Yes, very poor effort. He had 5 metres and a sideline to work with.

10th min TRY RABBITOHS to Alex Johnston in the corner, Walker and Sutton set it up. Reynolds misses the conversion. He's missed an earlier penalty goal attempt as well.

Manly lost in defense. Souths creating tries from basic decoy runs
