    It's Grand Final time!
    Congratulations to the two teams that made it to this years grand final - The Stuttgart Storm and the Las Vegas Legends

    @TheTassieHawk has had the Storm looking supreme all season long while @Pearcey47 and his Legends continue to peel off win after win in an amazing stretch. This is going to be a super grand final which will go down to the final matches deep into Sunday.

    Both teams however will need to make at least one big change from the preliminary final with injuries costing the Storm's Alyce Parker and the Legends Dana Hooker their place in their GF teams.

    For what it's worth these teams met in Round One this year and it's fair to say a lot has changed for both coaches since then...

    Storm 823 (Riddell 113, O'Dwyer 106, Parker 95) def Legends 645 (Hatchard 120, Blackburn 93, Anderson 64)

    Best of luck to both coaches and may the best team win!!

    Las Vegas lineup:
    DEF: D Pearce, B Jakobsson, K Dempsey (E Pease)
    MID: A Hatchard, E Blackburn, A Anderson, S Chiocci (R Martin)
    RUC: E McKinnon
    FWD: R Cranston, T Bohanna, T Harris (N Stevens)
    INT: N Morrison, I Lewis (S Frederick)
    Please note my lineup shows L Ahrens on field as I am unable to sub her out for Pearce.
    I am likely away from the internet until after lock so if someone could update this for me that would be appreciated.

    Well done to the Stuttgart Storm on your great season and I look forward to a great battle for the Premiership!

    A score check early in the second half has the Storm ahead of the Legends @Pearcey47 by 130 points 8/523 to 7/393.

    The visitors Jakobsen, Hatchard, Blackburn, Anderson and Cranston will look to wrest the lead from the home side's Lucas-Rodd, Woodland, Lamb and O'Dwyer before the Legends Bohanna goes head to head with Verrier for the Storm in the last match of the round.

    The Legends @Pearcey47 clawed back 5 points off the lead with the Storm now in front by 125, 10/682 to 9/557.

    Blackburn, Anderson and Cranston vs Lamb and O’Dwyer in the middle game as Vegas eyes a big finish to take the 2022 Grand Final right to the wire.

    Verrier plus 30 vs Bohanna to decide the fate of the 2022 Premier League title as a packed house cheers on every stat in the final game of the season.

    Verrier smashes out a 94 to secure back to back titles for the Storm, 869 to 792 over the Legends

    Las Vegas fell one game short of the fairytale finish after a 0-3 start to the season, commiserations to @Pearcey47

    The Jamie Lambert medal for BOG in the Grand Final went to the Storm's Ash Riddell.

    Congrats to the Storm on a great win and a very consistent season.

    the Legends will have some much needed time off and look to go one better next season.

    Thanks to all involved.
