This is shaping as a great contest. The favorites North Ballarat have convincing gone through the finals series and are in great shape looking for a 3rd straight premiership. They are get Leigh Harding back from injury for the game. The Roosters are on a 5 game winning streak including defeating Casey and Box Hill in the finals. Their last loss was in Round 15 against Werribee at Werribee. The Northern Bullants came into this game on a 4 game winning streak and defeating Collingwood,Casey Scorpions and Williamstown in the finals to get to the grand final. The Bullants last loss was in Round 17 against Casey at Visy Park. This will be a close contest as the Bullants would have learnt a lot from losing last year's Grand Final but I think the Roosters will be too strong.
