In The Clear NRL Podcast co-hosts Chris Boulous and Matt Lawrence tried to separate the pretenders from the contenders heading into the final round of the NRL. 

It wasn’t an easy task.

“I mean at this stage I have put the red line through the Panthers and Dragons, but the other six have a chance,” Boulous said.

“But that all can change. Penrith could click into gear and knock over the Storm and they could come back into contention.”

Lawrence expected the contenders to step up in round 25.

”I think the top four teams will all win and make a statement,” he said.

”That would set up Storm/Sharks and Rabbitohs/Roosters….what a week one of finals we have.”

Also on this week’s show the boys look back on their top eight predictions heading into round one.

“I had the Cowboys and Eels in my top four...how wrong I was,” Boulous said.

Round 25 tips:

Boulous: Rabbitohs, Warriors, Storm, Knights, Cowboys, Roosters, Sharks , Broncos.

Lawrence: Rabbitohs, Warriors, Storm, Knights, Cowboys, Roosters, Sharks, Broncos
