Bulldogs book NRL final berth
England prop forward James Graham reached another Grand Final by helping Canterbury Bulldogs to a 32-8 victory over South Sydney on Saturday.
Graham played his last match for St Helens in last October's Super League Grand Final defeat by Leeds at Old Trafford, and will be hoping to go one better after reaching the NRL title decider in his first season in Australia.
The Bulldogs' comfortable victory over the Rabbitohs dashed the hopes of brothers Sam and Luke Burgess playing in their first NRL Grand Final but an Englishman is guaranteed to be a winner in next Sunday's decider at Sydney's ANZ Stadium.
Halifax-born England stand-off Gareth Widdop was in the Melbourne Storm team that were 40-12 winners over Manly Sea Eagles in Friday's first semi-final.
Current Warrington captain Adrian Morley was the last of 10 Englishmen to win an Australian Grand Final when he helped Sydney Roosters win the 2002 title.
