    Really good game without being too flashy.

    2 stinking decisions = 2 tries for the Roosters.

    Two missed kicks from Mitchell. Raiders should of had six more then, and then Roosters strike! Bateman has been a tackle machine today.

    Canberra been well and truly shafted by the refs here
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    What a game, Raiders hard done to by poor reffing, but the Roosters do the back to back. The English lads did great.

    Cronk bow's out, what a player he's been.

    The Roosters are an incredible side and deserved premiers, but I can't help feeling they were really lucky with decisions tonight.

    Without intervention they wouldn't have scored those 2 tries and you can't wave 6 more then change your mind. That's a horrendous decision by Cummings who was a shock appointment to say the least

    Thought the sin binning was harsh too. Canberra just lacking a bit of creativity at the end of each set and the Roosters defence was superb. Just a shame that refereeing decisions are again a big focus in the result of big games

    Absolute shocker of a call from the officials there. You can’t give back to 1 then change your mind mid play. The first try came off the back of a very dodgy call too. Canberra unlucky there. Awesome defence from Roosters though.

    It hadn't occurred to me at all, but in Fittler's interview with Boyd Cordner and Nick Politis the latter mentioned going to England in February: if we win on Saturday we'll be playing against this lot next year.

    I'll take a hiding in Feb in exchange for a win on Saturday!

    Why is it every important game in RL seems to be decided by a referee. These officials should be in the background of a game not on the main stage.

    Joke refereeing, all the decisions favouring one side. I had to check the ref wasn't Robert Hicks.
    I f*cking hate wi*an.

    Well as I've supported Canberra since the days of Big Mal and Laurie Daley that's 2 of my teams shafted by a referee in the final. Hope it's 3rd time lucky.

    Really entertaining game for the neutral but yeh, some dodgy decisions from the officials, which shouldn't be evident, especially in a Grand Final.

    I don’t watch much NRL but wanted Canberra to win with the English contingent. They had a bad call against them obviously but all in all I thought they didn’t quite do enough in the last third of the pitch

    Wouldn't even worry about it. Whether it's Saints or Salford, Roosters bring a team near full strength & the right attitude, they'll win by 20-30. Completely superior
