Let us have a quick look at the main headlines from the last week.
Junior Warriors one step closer to Grand Final
After sneaking into the top eight with a 12-1-11 season record, Stacey Jones’ Junior Warriors are now making a one way charge to the Holden Cup Grand Final. After disposing of the Roosters in week 1, the Warriors continued their run by knocking out minor premiers Newcastle with a 23 – 16 away win.
The only thing that stands between the Warriors and the Grand Final are the third seed Eels, the team that beat the Warriors twice during the regular season.
Can they make it? You bet your bottom dollar they can!
