Here is the time to be bold and see how you'll go. 1-Melbourne (sorry to say it but can't see anyone beating them again this year.) 2-Dogs (again sorry to say but second year with Ha$ler who has made some good signings.) 3-Manly (hope I am wrong and hope we win the whole thing, but our forwards are a small worry. A good solid but aging pack.) 4-Brisbane (they have a good squad and have bought some talent) 5-Souths (a little disrupted with ownership woes might have an affect on their performance.) 6-8 In no particular order Canberra, Cronulla and Warriors. Dark horses - Roosters and Paramatta (can't see them getting into the eight. But may challenge for the last three spots.) Spoon could be a fight between Penrith and Titans with Titans to take it out but only just. Don't be too hard on me as I am only an armchair supporter.
