The Finchman: Storm v Raiders, should be an absolute beauty this game.
I’m leaning towards the Storm of course, for two reasons
I thought last year what could of been looked upon as weaknesses are now strengths.
1. Jahrome Hughes only had two weeks at halfback before the finals last year, while this year he's had the whole season in the no7 jumper.
He’s been one of the Storms best.
2. I thought they lacked a bit of X-factor last year, and the emergence of Ryan Papenhuyzen as a superstar of the game has certainly covered this area.
Again, the Raiders will rely on Big Papa & Wighton, they have been absolutely superb for them and they will need to be at their best
I don’t believe the Storm will let the Raiders get off to a fast start like the Chooks did.
