How to watch the 2017 NRL Grand Final online

Slater'more than likely to play on

Michael Morgan has been the A through to Z factor in attack, but Jake Granville is the player who could really explode in the decider. A attractive length-of-the-field effort was finished by Josh Ado-Carr, a player who could run 10.6 for the 100m when he was 16, and a player who the Wests Tigers were unable to get the best out of in season 2016.

The NRL runs a subscription service known as NRL Live Pass, which gets you access to live streams of every NRL game played over the season - including the Grand Final. The Cowboys rake has been solid in defence over the last few weeks but hasn't had the chance to showcase his deadly running game - although Melbourne are so adept at controlling the ruck, Granville only needs one chance to break a game right open.

"But Melbourne were very good, they controlled the field position in that first half really, really well and probably defensively we didn't execute the way we needed to". The Storm are so well-drilled in the way they defend from the inside out, you have to upset them with inside balls.

The Storm have been making some uncharacteristic errors during the finals, but they will be looking to fix that on Sunday.

But the Storm soaked it up and when Smith sent Dale Finucane over beside the posts if the 64th minute any glimmer of hope was gone for the North Queenslanders.

The Cowboys are heavy outsiders, but they have been for the last month and they just keep coming up with the plays that matter when they're required.




Fan favourite: Billy Slater laps it up with the travelling support.

That was as good as it got for the Cowboys though as an unstoppable Storm outfit exploded late in similar fashion to that in which they put Brisbane to the sword a week earlier.

On paper Melbourne have the better big men, led by names like Jesse Bromwich and Tohu Harris, but the reality is that the Cowboys have the edge on the Storm's forwards.

We just tried to limit his impact on the game, to limit what he is capable of doing and make him uncomfortable.

Munster revealed they had hatched a plan to get up in Morgan's face and made no secret of their desire to nullify his influence and rattle his cage. There is no better player than Cameron Smith at directing play around the ruck at tiring props. They've been playing together for years, not just for Melbourne but for Queensland and Australia too, and know how to win big games. They're fuelled by the grand final defeat last season and have a gear that nobody else can touch.

"The Cowboys are underpinned by a great work ethic, back-rowers who start and end the game and a workaholic bench that is unheralded but which comes on and does a lot of cleaning up".
