Manly have come in on all the betting tables. To win the Premiership is now $41.
I can see a very similiar pattern to last year in the results. The Sharkies will struggle this weekend without Noddy and we showed enough defense starch against the Warriors to say we should beat them comfortably.
The Chooks were totally disorganised in the first half and were very scrappy but they then did manage to find a rhythm and won the game. I believe they will be a big force this year. That said, so will the Panthers who will be smarting from the loss and have local home ground support this weekend. This game is the hardest to call from the entire round.
The teams that look like they have enough juice are Broncos, Dogs, Chooks, Storm and Panthers. The next tier are Eagles, Sharks and Parra. I will be surprised if that is not the 8. The Cowboys are in with a shot. Even though we have had one round the rest look to me like they will struggle. I reckon the Knights will get the spoon.
