Lets face it - Roosters are the team to beat.... Souths would be considered the main challenger Melbourne are limping in & the Dogs who play a good finals brand of footy are simply not good enough Penrith have played above themselves (credit to them) but will surprise if they win another game.... Nth Qld have players in the right positions to be a genuine threat & easily could do just that. Manly are injury ravaged & imo - equal 3rd with the Cows to take out the 2014 premiership. Always written off before a ball is kicked, the calls of underdog are now very real with so many stars out & looking tired at seasons end. Maybe with a nothing to lose attitude & backs against the wall, it could yet again get the best out of the Eagles. Also rather then seeing the missing stars as such a disadvantage, its an opportunity for the Hasson, Lui, Jesse types to really make a statement on the finals arena....& become stars in their own right. This finals campaign is that opportunity.
