I gather most people here will be watching the season opener tonight.

I reckon the Bridesmaids (Dragoons) will win by 12

Saints have an appalling record in the first six weeks of every season since 1990s. They struggle to win the first few, then come good mid-season and fail to deliver at the end of the year when it counts.

I'm still leaning to the Saints as I think the Tigers will fail to turn up this year!

Will be interesting to see if Brown's ploy of pairing Cooper & Gaz in attack pays off

I would like to see sides adopt the old inside/outside centre idea rather than the right and left. It might allow a slightly different approach and combination to attacking play!

Im with ya Garts. The season so far has yielded a 100% failure rate.

I see Benji is out for 6 weeks. He should go back to touch footy where he belongs.

Bit unfair Byso he did play all the 2nd half with a fractured cheekbone so he's a tough little bugger

Yes he's a talented attacker but how often does he get injured?

There's no where to hide in defence in the NRL ,that was clear to see last night.

I would still have him in my side any weekend, and not my touch footy side.

His injury last night was just unlucky, its not like his shoulder has broken down again.

He had the best centre in the world attacking him. He won the game for the tigers , and yeah played the last 40 minutes with a badly swollen jaw.
Id have him in my team any day.
