Fensom storms in to first NRL grand final

01 October 2017

For Melbourne, this is the end of an era.

Fensom has found a new home in North Queensland.

Without star playmaker Johnathan Thurston who has been ruled out for the rest of year with a shoulder injury, the Cowboys have continued to surprise the NRL competition and fans with their ability to grind out tough wins in their run to the NRL Grand Final.

Dale Finucane restored his team's advantage in the 64th minute and from there the Storm were never threatened as they avenged last year's grand final loss to Cronulla.

For all their unbelievable achievements for the Storm, Queensland and the Kangaroos, Smith, Cronk and Slater only had one NRL ring before last night.

Melbourne Storm fullback Billy Slater has added a second Clive Churchill Medal to his already bulging trophy case, after starring in their emphatic NRL grand final win over North Queensland at ANZ Stadium on Sunday.

Trump's pick for Republican senator loses to populist ex-judge
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the partisan debate over the country's health care system will "certainly continue". Meyers went on to call Judge Moore as "a darling of the far right, known for his many years of open bigotry and homophobia".

The NRL Grand final between the Cowboys and the Storm will kick off at 8.15 tonight.

They also have nothing to lose, and that makes them unsafe, so Melbourne will have to be at the top of their game if they are to win what promises to be an electrifying Grand Final.

It was a dominant performance from a team that finished three wins clear of second place in the regular season, ensuring Cronk departed from the club with two titles.

The half-time siren came at the flawless time for North Queensland, who looked on the ropes after 40 bruising minutes, and the break would allow the Cowboys to regroup.

"I still think he has a lot to offer, he still has his speed", Johns said during Channel Nine's pre-game coverage. As we saw in the preliminary final, Addo-Carr can change a game with a single touch and if he gets some clean ball and a bit of space you can forget about it.

It also makes sense to consider unders on the points.

Bad Flu Season in Australia has US Officials Worried
Since 2010, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has tracked hospitalizations and deaths related to influenza each year. Researchers suggest that positive moods may have something to do with how effective flu vaccines are in seniors.

The Storm have their tails up and are applying some real pressure on the Cowboys as their forwards look absolutely knackered. Sad to think we won't see Slater, Smith and Cronk together again.

"They are reliable", Cronk said of his fellow Storm greats. "You work extremely hard for it".

His team-mate, Cooper Cronk, was equally coy, and would give no indication on whether he will continue his career by joining a Sydney-based team next year or hang up his boots.

They had travelled more than nearly 15,000 kilometres during the course of the finals, but looked like they were all out of petrol.

One Ladbrokes account holder stands to turn $20 into $5500 with a Storm win after combining National Basketball Association, rugby league and boxing results, while a $3 bet with UBET could return $5480 should the Cowboys win and the Adelaide Crows win the AFL Grand Final this weekend.
