    Its close enough to the start of the season for a prediction thread.

    1 Brisbane
    2 Cows
    3 NZ
    4 Manly
    5 Roosters
    6 Sharks
    7 Caberra
    8 Souffs

    9 Penriff
    10 Dogs
    11 Storm
    12 Parra
    13 St. Merge
    14 Newcastle
    15 Tigers
    16 Titans
    The top and bottom four pick themselves only NZ is unproven.
    Im picking Dogs and Storm to be on the slide, Souffs will slip will continue they may just make the finals though.

    They might ., they just may, but why to the life of me every second person have Brisbane winning or leading the comp . Are they that good and I'm missing something ?

    1 New Zealand
    2 Brisbane
    3 Manly
    4 Cowboys
    5 Roosters
    6 Sharks
    7 Penrith
    8 Souths

    9 Bulldogs
    10 Melbourne
    11 St George
    12 Parramatta
    13 Canberra
    14 Newcastle
    15 Tigers
    16 Gold Coast

    I think the only certainty is that the Gold Coast will get the spoon. I'd suggest that any of the top 12 above have a legitimate shot at playing finals footy.

    Could very likely be this 8. Ithink Canberra could do ok this year, which is a shame because i love Sticky's pressors when his team gets flogged.

    The only thing I can predict for season 2016 is that the Warriors will either finish in the top 4 or bottom 4.

    Tricky thing about Manly is that though they appear to have bought well and seem to have a more solid pack, there are question marks that only the new season will answer. Is Walker up to the 5/8 position despite his obvious talent and speed. I doubt that Api is as good as Ballin, but is Parcell the great hooking hope. He was brilliant in a second division side but will that translate to first grade. Is Barrett up to coaching a first grade side through a full season? Will Tom T's brilliant form in U20s be seen in firsts this year.

    If all these factors fall well into place, Manly could be a top 4 side. If not we could be seeing Manly linger around 7th or 8th.

    Please, what would Gould know? The great Matthew Elliott has made it clear we are a 'C' and not top 8 material; surely there can be no further debate.
