An­drews, a life-long league sup­porter said his se­cret this year was tip­ping against his beloved Dragons and the Parramatta Eels, which saw him through to se­cure the win­ners pack­age, that in­cludes flights, ac­com­mo­da­tion and grand fi­nal tick­ets for two.

An­drews, who has been to six grand fi­nal matches in the past, is hop­ing for a Roost­ers and Rab­bitohs fi­nal. “I’d love to see the Rab­bitohs win, it’s been such a long time be­tween drinks for them,” he said.

“Fin­gers crossed for the Dragons next year.”
