Interested to see who ppl rate at this stage -who is underachieving & who has raised the bar. For mine Storm are a much better proposition than 2011 where they peaked all season but had no extra gears come finals time. As expected the big 3 are firing but players like Widdop,Duffie & Proctor have improved & getting Nielson back, seem the yardstick atm. The biggest fail so far is Newcastle, Tigers & NZ but I wont be suprised to see the latter 2 get a roll on by seasons end & challenge Manly/Melbourne come finals time. Tipped Sharks for top 5-8 but have exceeding my expectations & could easily be undefeated at this stage. Have a strong foward pack & Gallen love or hate him - is a legit freak. Carney has added spark & they are competing for 80 mins a game. Gardner could be a crucial loss. Realise its early days but whats the opinions at this stage??
