The well-rested Sydney Roosters and Melbourne Storm will play in the grand final according to In the Clear NRL podcast co-host Chris Boulous.

“Souths have had two epic games back-to-back and the Sharks have injury concerns over their two most influential forwards,” Boulous said.

“I think for once the week off could be a major factor.

“For me, the Roosters even missing Latrell Mitchell and Dylan Napa will just nab the Rabbitohs and the Storm will win it for Billy Slater in Melbourne.”

Fellow co-host Matt Lawrence and Rabbitohs tragic said he expects his team to come out firing against Chris’ Roosters.

“It will be a great match-up – especially in the middle,” he said.

“I think whoever wins will go on to win the grand final. Both teams have a lot of attacking options which is needed to win the big games.”

In the other game, Lawrence said the Storm will outlast the “gritty” Sharks to make their third straight grand final.
