Hello one and all and welcome to something a little bit different from us.


OK, not that different.

My name is Simon Smale and, this afternoon, I will be guiding you through all of Saturday’s NRL action as the finals picture starts to take shape.

This is a new form of coverage that we will be rolling out across the finals for the NRL and AFL over the next few weeks.

So let us know what you think, get involved in the conversation by hitting the comment button about what you’re seeing in the matches and I’ll do my best to cover everything off as it happens.
