    Most teams have recruited very well, I keep trying to predict the ladder and I can never finish it, The teams that were great last year should be still competitive next year, and most others teams will/should improve. Most teams look great on paper and should be great. Hard to predict some because of interchange rule. Im gonna run through the 2015 ladder and list pros and cons and some others.

      Tend to agree with most of your accessment of the teams. Although I don't think St George and Canberra are real premiership threats.

      I expect Warriors, Cronulla, Souths,Parramatta and Manly to improve on last year.

      Canterbury, Melbourne, North Queensland, Penrith and Rooster should drop a little.

      It will be a very close competition.

      Manly vs Broncos grand final

        Agree with most of what you said but
        "-no pritchard or hodko"
        "-Woeful recruitment"
        isn't that a contradiction?
