I was hoping for a Melbourne win, purely because I wanted to beat them in the GF. I dislike Storm intensely, but I do feel that the McIntrye system does not reward consistently good performances throughout the season. The Warriors finished sixth, losing a heap of games. Then they got smashed in their first finals match. Really, they shouldn't have been rewarded via a second chance to continue playing. They then got hot in their next two matches, and are in the GF. Whereas Storm won the minor premiership, and their first finals match. Yet they don't get the play in the GF. The match between Manly V Melb is what the vast majority of fans wanted to see. I think the NRL should revert back to a five team finals series. I know TV will not let that happen, but the Warriors' advancement to the GF is a further mark against the uneveness of the competition. I'm also more worried about beating the Warriors than I would have been beating Melbourne, but of course that is not clouding my opinion!
