4 years ago 659 Views

It’s been an eventful 2017 season and now the NRL finals series to set to kick off with a bang as the Roosters host the Broncos this Friday night (8 September).

Expect some epic showdowns and plenty of action – after all, that’s what the finals is all about. The best taking on the best and giving it all they’ve got.

So who will we see take it out in the 2017 NRL finals series? We can only speculate, but these three teams are hot picks to consider backing – and well worth catching live in action over the coming weeks.

NRL Finals 2017

A far cry from last year’s forgettable season, they’ve been fighting hard this year and are opening the finals series as second-placed this weekend against the Broncos. It’s worth noting that they did win the title last time we had a Chinese year of the rooster back in 1945 – maybe it’ll become tradition…

Parramatta Eels

The early stats in the season certainly weren’t in their favour, but the Eels have certainly set their underdog status aside this year. Winning eight games of the 12 the bookies discounted them for, there’s no doubt that the Eels have proven themselves worthy contenders this year.

Melbourne Storm

The Storm have had an undeniably spectacular season. Cameron Smith is consistent and tough, having clocked up his 350th game in July – one of only three players ever to do so. The number 1 team with the bookies, watching Melbourne Storm on the field is always a treat and taking the 2017 NRL title is a definite possibility for this powerhouse team.
