    20 games, 10 rounds, and a shitload of points later and we come down to this. The battle between two sides desperate to make it to the biggest stage of them all, the Grand Final. Welcome all to a sold out ICA Stadium where the 2nd and 3rd best teams of the season are about to meet for the 2nd spot in this season's RLSim Grand Final. We have seen a lot of blood, sweet and tears pour out of these two teams all season all for a chance at the big prize, the Premiership. Tonight, a bitter and exciting rivalry turns a new chapter, probably the biggest yet. Tonight, one team will walk away in shame knowing that they were 1 game away, the other will be walking out of here knowing that they are 1 win away from the prize.

    All week we have been hearing the Hawks are going to win, the bookies seem to agree. However, after a spirited win against the minor premiers and other grand finalist, the Test Eagles, the Donkehs have no problem coming in as the underdogs and are full of confidence. Can they shut down the critics though and more importantly can they shut down the Hawks?

    Looking at the Hawks lineup on paper, straight away their halves jump out at you. Probably the most dominant pair in the competition this year, shoe ins for origin and even talks of making the Austrian Rep Side. These two have been running havoc over their opposition all year. There is no doubt that a lot falls onto the shoulders of these two an need to continue to show their dominance. However, if you look on the other side of things and you look over at the Donkehs, they are certainly not short of talent. Their forward pack certainly seems to have the Hawks' number. The likes of King, Robertson and Charles all former origin stars and all in with a chance again. They are the experienced men of the side and they will be looking to lead this team to victory.

    You can feel the tension around the two camps, you can feel the crowd getting restless. This is finals footy at its best. What are we going to see in 80 minutes time? Who will step up and send their team to the big stage? Well, we aren't very far away from finding out....

    FTR, I haven't had dinner yet so it will probably be another 15-20 minutes before kickoff. Just thought I'd get some buildup first.

  10. Escath LE Schaw

    Hawks to win.
  11. GYR DW Lewis

    Yeah lol. Rob isn't letting me have a side that is a combination of NSW and QLD's best players aka the Australian side because he is stuck up about the name being called Australia. So I said fine, I'll call it the Austrian side.

  15. Old Mate M Perry

    Great write up, hopefully we have a clean game. Not likely against these scumbags though.
  16. Gazza GJ Weaver

    Hawks ftw
  17. Cribbage RG Cribb

    And I said nah to that as well. Combining NSW and Queensland actually makes no sense in RLSim because they are by far the strongest two provinces. I can see why it was done in Seasonal Rugby, but it makes no sense with this at all. It won't be happening.
  18. SM MD Dorn

    Cannot wait, match is gonna be epic
  19. Benny BS Read

    Carn the Donkehs

    Tipping the Donkgays. They are probably due for a win against the Hawks too.
