NRL Grand Final First Try Scorer Predictions & Tips: Penrith Panthers v Melbourne Storm (Sunday 08:30 BST)
The NRL Grand Final between Penrith Panthers and Melbourne Storm will be a fierce and exciting affair, and in my opinion, whoever controls the forward battle will win the game. The experience of Cameron Smith and the fact the Storm have played in a number of Grand Finals will be beneficial, as it is not unusual for a team to choke in the big game. Penrith have not been in a Grand Final since 2003, the pressure could finally get to them. I think this will be a close encounter, but I am backing Melbourne to get off to a fast start with prop forward Jesse Bromwich taking a short ball to crash over from close range. Backing Bromwich is a gamble seeing as he has only scored two tries this season – one of them coming last week – but I believe both defences will be tight on the edges so the breakthrough will have to come through the middle.
