It’s first versus third when Northern Pride  goes head-to-head with Easts Tigers on Sunday in the Intrust Super Grand Final.

Pride has been the best team all year. Winning 20 from 26 games this year was no fluke, and their price in the Grand Final betting market reflects that. Since April, they haven’t gone above the $4 mark, and head into this weekend’s match favourites. Since their inception in 2008, Northern Pride has made the finals every year bar 2012 and even won the Grand Final in 2010. Five-eighth Shaun Nona will be the go-to man for the Pride this weekend, given he finished the year the second overall leading point scorer and kicked the match winning goal for the Pride in the Minor Semi Final against the Tigers two weeks ago.

The Tigers have made the Grand Final for the second year in a row and will look to avenge last year’s 27-20 defeat to the hands of the Mackay Cutters. Following their impressive 30-12 win over the Wynnum Manly Seagulls last week, the Tigers have one more road block in their bid to win their first Premiership in 13 years. In the last seven years, they have won just two out of 15 games against Northern Pride. They will rely heavily on South Sydney bound Cody Walker, who finished last week's game with two try assists and two four-pointers.

Both teams have the extra motivation with the knowledge that the winner on Sunday will head down to Sydney next week to play the winner of the NSW Cup Grand Final. Following the season the Pride has had, they have been heavily backed this week in the Grand Final betting market. However during the course of the year, almost double the amount of bets has been laid on the Tigers to lift the trophy on Sunday.
