Friday night: Melbourne v Brisbane, AAMI Park
All the cards point to a Melbourne win; it’s their second straight home final after a week off, while Brisbane are recovering from a bruising sudden-death win over Penrith. With no AFL finals on Friday night, this is a big chance for Storm fans to pack AAMI Park and watch their team make another grand final.

Saturday night: Sydney Roosters v North Queensland, SFS
While the Roosters enjoy a home final after a week off, North Queensland have vital momentum. The Cowboys were mentally preparing for Mad Monday during the dying minutes of the Canterbury v St George-Illawarra round 26 game, now they’re 80 minutes from another grand final. Could they do it? Surely the well-rested Roosters will stop the Cowboys run. Hopefully more than five people will turn up to watch them this time.
