Will Johnathan Thurston, Anthony Milford and Jake Granville make your NRL Grand Final Fantasy team?

With $1000 up for grabs, there's no reason not to pick your six-man NRL Fantasy side for Sunday's Grand Final between the Broncos and the Cowboys. 

Here are the teams the team are picking for the last week of NRL Fantasy in 2015.

Lone Scout, Fantasy guru: Andrew McCullough, Matt Scott, Corey Parker (c), Ben Hunt (vc), Jack Reed, Anthony Milford.

"With two evenly matched sides I'm predicting a tight Broncos win, with Hunt and Milford having some success in attack and Jack Reed as good a chance of anybody to score a try or two. It's hard to go past Parker and McCullough in the pack so Matt Scott is the lone Cowboy to make my side."

Chris Kennedy, National Correspondent: Andrew McCullough, Matt Scott, Corey Parker (vc), Johnathan Thurston (c), Justin O'Neill, Michael Morgan.

"I'm predicting (perhaps optimistically) for the fulfilment of the Cowboys/Johnathan Thurston fairytale so have loaded up on attacking players from North Queensland and the two men most likely to top the tackle count for Brisbane, while taking a punt on Thurston as captain in the hopes of plenty of attacking involvement."

Adrian McMurray, Producer: Andrew McCullough, James Tamou, Corey Parker (c), Ben Hunt (vc), Kane Linnett, Michael Morgan.

"It goes against all conventional wisdom for the match day games, but for whatever reason, I like to run with three players from each team. It was a toss of the coin between Milford and Morgan at WFB and Hunt and Thurston in the halves. The Cowboys five-eighth loves a try against the Broncos, and given his recent form and kicking game, I thought Hunt might be a decent POD. Tamou is also a POD up front, with Parker getting the nod as captain because any of my left-field captaincy options have backfired spectacularly this finals series."

Tony Webeck, Chief Queensland Correspondent: Andrew McCullough, Sam Thaiday, Corey Parker (c), Johnathan Thurston (vc), Justin Hodges, Michael Morgan.

"Parker is my choice as Clive Churchill Medal winner so happy to make him my Fantasy captain. The opportunity to have Morgan at fullback is too good to pass up and I'm predicting big games from Broncos veterans Thaiday and Hodges. And if the Cowboys win, Thurston will have big numbers in just about every statistical category."

Dominic Brock, Production Editor: Andrew McCullough, Sam Thaiday, Corey Parker (vc), Johnathan Thurston (c), Kane Linnett, Michael Morgan.

"The stage is set for a Johnathan Thurston-led Cowboys win against their arch rivals here, so I've opted for an all-North Queensland backline and a Broncos pack featuring three tackle-hungry forwards. If the Cowboys do get the win, expect Thurston and Morgan to be in the thick of things.

Andrew Bryan, Deputy Editor: Andrew McCullough (c), Matt Scott, Corey Parker (vc), Johnathan Thurston, Justin Hodges, Anthony Milford.

"I'm slightly leaning towards a Broncos victory, which is why there are four Broncos in my team, however I've had a bit each way; if the Cowboys win, it'll be off the back of big performances from their co-captains Johnathan Thurston and Matt Scott. Also banking on Justin Hodges scoring a fairytale try or getting some try assists in his last game."
