Week 1 of the NRL finals series is here. We take a look at some of the head-to-head and individual player stats heading into the weekend’s games.
An all-Sydney affair in the Shire with the Roosters making a late charge to the final eight. But interestingly both these teams have poor recent records in the finals.
