Time to put our reputations on the line with some predictions of what is going to happen this year. My tip for Premiership:Â It's a ludicrous one and I hesitate to say they'll go all the way.Â But Souths may be in the comp up to their necks.Â They could re-define the way the game is played with their monster pack and lightning backs.Â The only thing that might negate this is if it is true the interchange is being chopped back to 7.Â That might leave some tired gorillas out there for them. Origin:Â Injuries, lack of desire and 2 games in Sydney will see NSW finally snap their losing streak. Manly's fortunes:Â I think we'll putter along.Â Might open up something like 3-5 while the halves settle in and we'll be in the dogfight for 8th spot as the season enters the stretch.Â We'll finish 7th or 8th and get bundled out in the first week. Wooden spoon:Â Knights.Â hehehe First scandal:Â Will probably come out of Cronulla.
