    Big League Season Preview & top 8 predictions

    the 2011 Big League season preview hit the shelves today, first page I opened up was page 42 the Sea Eagles 4 page spread (was quite a good read)
    there is a good interview with Kieran Foran, a piece about Cherry-Evans & a positive spin from killer.

    Eels are hot favourites to get the spoon

    Richie and Matchett have it right

    Amazing really (Eels for the Spoon)...I would have thought the Knights / Shars would have been unbackable.

    These are nothing other than peoples predictions....when the MWSE forum was still going they had a comp where you picked the final 8, in position, prior to kick off.....I don't think anyone ever got close to picking them and most didn't even get the 8 right.

    There are SO many variables...we go through injury free to our major stars...we could finish as high as top 4, we have injury problems all year...we'll go as low as 13th / 14th.

    And the same applies to every other team....Benji has a season ending injury game one...Tigers are buggered.

    These are all just for fun and to get people talking. The only real talking that matters is the stuff on the park. A lot of these guys don't even know League. It is just that they are reporters/journalists and work for a businees so they have a say, even if it means nothing.

    I'd have to agree.  Sharks, Cowboys and Knights are my bottom 3.

    sharks or cowboys are certainties.  Cowboys to seek a new coach after 8 rounds and Snowden affair to derail the sharks season. 

    Hoping the roosters also challenge for the spoon as well with Carney to be sacked during the year for drunken behavior and cheap shot Hargreaves to be belted by Tiquiri.

    Panthers for the spoon.  Elliot to be sacked at the end of the fifth round after not winning a match.

    Jeez that would be harsh!

    After them having some success last year, you would think he would have some leeway.

    I mean in 2009 it took us 5 rounds to bag a win

    :)

    Well 5th was a reality the other years, I think 7th is more likely this year. But I have officially gone with 5th and a smaller bet on 7th

    I find it hard to believe the Eels will finish last, but here's hoping.

    Knights will surprise a few this year. I expect them to be in the 8

    Sharks or Girls for the spoon

    same. Rick Stone is a great coach. Chris "heroin" Houston is back playing.He'll go good as long as he leaves the pharmacutical to his local chemist.

    Harder to pick than a broken nose this year. If we can stay injury free I am more than confident we can finish top 4. We have some youth this year which will bread enthusiasm, which is somehting we lacked last year.
