    I'm confused, the headline says their experts tip us to miss the 8, then they say we will come 8th.

      I don't get it. The headline says "experts" but then the story looks at the opinions of people like Phil "this is the Sharks' year" Rothfield, Paul "I know league because I do a TV show with Wayne Bennett's son in law" Kent and (with some exceptions) a bunch of people I've never heard of... Not one real expert amongst them.

      I wouldn't call one of these twats an expert. These are the experts that had us missing last year's 8 and we come equal first and knocked out in preliminary final.

      Yes, their expert knowledge seems to be spot on....

      LOL anyone that has the Eels in their Top 8 in 2015 is delusional. Hayne gone and the best they got with him was 10th last season.

      At least one thing to get excited about... Manly being written off which is a good Omen :)

          I agree with Roosters, Rabbits, Cowboys and Bulldogs to be in the top 4, I think somewhere in the 5-8 bracket for us.

          I don't have much confidence that this is going to be a stellar year, but I might be like Slothfield "always wrong"

              Well, they are experts in their own ways. These are lists, that's for sure. There's no doubt in my mind that these are indeed predictions.

              How do you become an expert? Do you go to expert school? Do you do an expert apprenticeship? Do you get nominated by other experts? Or do you get a job at a crap newspaper and call yourself an expert?.......I just want to make sure I don't become an expert unintentionally, because it seems once you become an expert you know f**k all.

                Across the 'expert' League spectrum we've been consigned to bottom of the 8, if we even make finals.

                Brilliant and exactly what the staff and players will want to prove wrong...again.

                I look at our team. I look at the draw. I look at our club.

                No matter which way I look at it I can't see us losing a game this year.

                  Hope you are right, or even 85% right would be good enough
