Ok - here it is guys. Last year I predicted 10th, and 2 more wins than 2004. I was wrong by 2 on both accounts. We came 8th, and we won 4 more than the previous year. Now we look to 2006. What are your predictions & expectations. As the way things stand RIGHT now, we are loking at a squad something like this:- 01. Brett Stewart 02. Paul Stephenson 03. Steven Bell 04. Steve Matai / Ashley Alberts 05. Chris Hicks 06. Michael Monaghan / Michael Witt / Steve Menzies (Pfft) 07. Matt Orford 08. Brent Kite 09. Luke Williamson / Michael Monaghan / Matt Ballin 10. Jason King / Mark Bryant 11. Anthony Watmough 12. Steve Menzies 13. Ben Kennedy 14. Shayne Dunley / Travis Burns 15. Daniel Heckenberg / Kane Cleal / Mailangi Styles 16. Kylie Leuleuai / Phil Moorwood / 17. Glenn Stewart / Adam Cuthbertson / Nathan Tutt I think we have some abvious deficiencies there. In my opinion they are:- 1. Age SHALL weary some of them, as seen with the latter part of 05; 2. No specialised 5/8; 3. No depth in club; 4. A weak bench compared to others; 5. Worst coaching staff in the NRL. There are also IMPROVEMENTS. In my opinion they are:- 1. Matt Orford will structure our attack more; 2. Monaghan has no contract negotiation, and he might focus on football; 3. Our expectation have been reduced throough the end of 05; 4. We have a centre that can actually break the line / score tries; 5. We have off loaded some obvious unfulfilled potential kind of players; All in all, I cannot see us improving on this year "on the ladder", but I expect we won't lose as many concurrent games, which will please me to no end. In fact, I think we'll come 9th. You cannot think The Bulldogs, The Roosters, The Knights, The Raiders, The Panthers won't be better. You also can't think The Eels, The Dragons, The Broncos, The Tigers & The Storm will fold. We will come 9th, but be a lot closer to the spoon than 9th suggests. Sorry guys..
