2020 NRL Grand Final First Tryscorer Tips
NRL Grand Final First Tryscorer 2020 Best Bet - Justin Olam
The Melbourne Storm are the favourites to secure their fourth premiership, and will have no shortage of determination as they look to send out their superstar captain Cameron Smith as a winner.
After a slow start against the Eels in Week 1 of the finals, the Storm have utterly dominated their opposition lead by their star studded left-hand side.
Cameron Munster is one of the best halves in the game and has dominated his opposition, and with major targets including Justin Olam and Josh Addo-Carr, the Storm have often looked to his side.
Olam has enjoyed a breakout season in 2020, scoring 10 tries, breaking 50 tackles and making 5 line breaks, and is a key strike weapon for the Storm.
NRL Grand Final First Tryscorer 2020 Next Best Bet - Ryan Papenhuyzen
The electric fullback is one of the most exciting players in the game, and possessing the speed to pop up anywhere, is always an attacking threat.
Another player who has stamped himself as one of the games best attacking weapons during an outstanding 2020 season, the 22-year-old is on the verge of securing a well deserved New South Wales Origin debut.
Boasting 14 line breaks and 15 try assists this season, Papenhuyzen is a massive target for the Melbourne Storm in offence, with his speed and strength a scary combination for defensive lines.
Recording 70 tackle breaks so far this season, Papenhuyzen is a player who is always following the ball, and possessing the awareness to follow the ball through the ruck or organise sweeping ball movement, looms as a key try-scoring chance for the Storm.
NRL Grand Final First Tryscorer 2020 Value Bet - Viliame Kikau
The Penrith Panthers have began slowly in both finals games in 2020, however, the return of Viliame Kikau is likely to ensure this does not happen again.
The big Fijian has been the key attacking weapon for the Panthers in 2020, with his footwork, strength and ball skills a frightening proposition for any defence.
Standing at a monstrous 195cm and 119kg, Kikau has scored seven tries in 18 appearances this season, breaking 61 tackles and finding 21 offloads.
A major target for the Panthers offence, Kikau will be fired-up after missing his side's Preliminary Final after being suspended in Week 1 of the finals, and will be looking to make amends.
