*Sharks have a good, aggressive & versatile pack but lack the outside backs to be genuine contenders. *Newcastle are the least likely offering little compared to the other 7 teams. *Dogs can cause trouble to any on their day but are a shadow of 2012 & hard to see the 40% improvement needed. *Nth Qld have the most strike power of these 4 on the back of JT & Bowen & the best front rower pairing in the game, just SO inconsistent.... Sharks the only side who can threaten due to the foward pack, but will be found out by the top 4 in the outside backs imo.
