NRL Grand Final 2022 LIVE: Updates from Panthers v Eels at HomebushNRL grand final 2022: Utterly dominant Penrith take out their second straight premiership with 28-12 victory over a hopelessly outgunned Eels - as one shocking mistake sums up their nightPenrith have won the 2022 NRL grand final after a 16-point win over ParramattaEarlier, Newcastle took out the NRLW decider, with a dominant win over the Eels Here's how the entire day unfolded according to the Daily Mail Australia team Published: 05:33 GMT, 2 October 2022 | Updated: 13:10 GMT, 2 October 2022 The Panthers have won the 2022 NRL grand final by 16 points, after a near-faultless display in attack saw them beat the Eels 28-12 at Accor Stadium on Sunday night. In one of the most one-sided deciders this century, Penrith blew the Eels off the park in a near-perfect first half before Parramatta's only two tries came in the final four minutes - with the margin flattering the men in blue and gold big time.
And after 15 minutes on Sunday, it became evidently clear that there would be no return to the glory days for the Eels. After a tight opening, Edwards produced his first big moment when Cleary put him into space and the fullback found Stephen Crichton trailing back inside him. Jarome Luai was also back to his best, making the most of Penrith's momentum to help put To'o over for their second.
Dylan Edwards, the Clive Churchill Medallist, in particular was superb, making 228 metres on the back of his kick returns, as well as producing the cover tackle of the night on Bailey Simonsson in the second half and setting up two tries in the win. Brian To'o also scored a double, Moses Leota put on several big hits and through it all Nathan Cleary's kicking game was again influential. Penrith have beaten the Eels by 16 points to win the 2022 NRL Grand Final Panthers fullback Dylan Edwards was tireless in attack and defence, and was named as the Clive Churchill Medal winnerIn comparison Mitch Moses was unable to get an attacking kick away until the 40th minute, as their hopes of ending the 36-year drought were quickly extinguished.
It was enough to seal Penrith the fourth title in their history, as they became only the second team to defend their crown in the NRL era. But the scarier question is when will the Panthers' dominance stop? The club won every grade down to under-18s this season, and while they lose Viliame Kikau and Api Koroisau next year they appear set for a dynasty of success. A jubilant Panthers side lifts the Provan-Summons Trophy after easily accounting for the Eels in Sunday's grand finalIn the past three years alone they have won an incredible 67 of 78 matches, making their run the most dominant since Parramatta claimed three straight titles in the early 1980s.
Brian To'o salutes the Penrith fans after scoring one of his two tries for the eveningAgain, it was the back of a big Edwards kick return as he regularly put the Panthers on the front foot. At that point Liam Martin looked as if he could score every time he touched the ball on the right and Kikau was busting through tackles for fun on the left. Cleary also had the ball on a string as he was continually given good ball as Penrith zeroed in on Parramatta's ball-carriers. The halfback's finest play came when he spotted Clint Gutherson in the line and grubber-kicked for Scott Sorensen to make it 18-0 before halftime. In a picture that sums up the night for Eels fans, skipper Clint Gutherson's complaints to Ashley Klein fall of deaf ears as the side capitulates in the most important game of the seasonThe Eels were furious when Mitch Moses was then ruled to have initiated contact on Kikau in the lead up to To'o's second try after the break.
