Tommy fit for 75% of season and if we get a quality 9 we finish 5th or 6th.

otherwise we will improve but not that much say 10th or 11th.

I really think 2022 is the more realistic year we give the premiership a crack.

If Tommy stays fit, top 8. If Tommy stays fit and we get Fainu back mid year, Top 4.

No major season ending injuries we'll finish 5th.

2nd and we will win the premiership.

Only if Turbo, DCE, Foran and Walker stay fit.

Minor premiership is ours if Turbo, Chez and Foz play every game. Subtract one ladder position for any 2 games missed by anyone in this group. I predict they miss 12 games between them and we finish 7th.
I'll settle for that

We need our best line up on the field consistently to have success. My top 17 are

1. Turbo
2. Saab
3. Suli
4. Walker
5. Garrick
6. Schuster
7. DCE
8. Aloai
9. Foran
10. Tapau
11. Sirro
12. Olakuatu.
13. Jake
14. Cust
15. Paseka
16. Keppie
17. Davey

That side on the filed consistently should see us into the eight.

There's almost no chance of Foran playing the entire season. His body is shot.

It is easy to forget that last year with a fit and firing Turbo we won 5 of our first 6 (get nicked, we beat parra and were robbed 2 points)

We have it in us to be top four no doubt.

I'm expecting Turbo and Schuster to big the biggest additions to our 2020 squad. Walker, Foran and Ola'kautu will also add increased value.

Injuries, hooker and back row depth remain the issue with wing being a real wild card, hopefully Saab and Tuipulotu (sp?) really push on like we hope they do.

Where will we finish, well there are so many variables and I think anywhere from 3rd-12th is realistic.

If I was pressed.....5th-7th with us just missing Fainu and a strike line running backrower to go all the way

I get your thinking but Foz himself is confident and motivated and no matter what issues he has had , he is tough and hard and wants to succeed

I hope he meets his own and our teams expectations

could very much be an X factor
Wasn't the long ago we backed Hastings to be this person
Then Crocker
Then D Walkz
I will back Foz
The more he plays the closer we will be to being successful
After Covid and the return of snake to the training staff , I think him and Foz will reunite our spine
But FF course I am biased
We missed snake last year
Go manly

He has been confident and motivated for the past 3 years, he keeps picking up "tragic" long term injuries. Each time it comes as a surprise to him and is such a tragedy.

If turbo and Schuster play together for most of the season we will win many more than we lose.
They could be a very exciting combo.
