    I reckon the Sharks are on the downward slide that most Premiers eventually experience.

    Manly are looking really good and a great bet for the top 4.

    Atm I'd say:

    Storm
    Roosters
    Manly
    Broncos
    Dragons
    Sharks
    Panthers
    Eels

    Dragons will cling onto a spot.

    Imo the top 7 is pretty well confirmed in no order

    Melbourne
    Roosters
    Brisbane
    Manly
    Sharks
    Cowboys
    Dragons

    8 will be hotly contested by Penrith/Raiders/Warriors and Eels

    Agree. It's just a matter of who wants to be walloped on Grand Final day by Melbourne.

    It reminds me of 2014 when Manly, Bulldogs, and Penriff were battling it out in the finals just to become the team that broke Souffs premiership drought.

    Take the Dragons out and put Parramatta in and I think you'll be right.

    There is no way the Sharks will finish below us and there is no way we are making the 8.
    We will drop out of the 8 for 2 of Panthers/Raiders/Warriors and Eels

    Eels only need 3 from 7 at the very most. They've got the Broncos twice but not a difficult draw apart from that. I think they're close to being safe. That leaves 7 teams fighting for 8th. Raiders have the Storm twice, so I'd be prepared to write them off. Rabbitohs would need to win all their games, and none of them are easy, so I'd write them off too. Titans have a tough run home, four of them away games but are the best of the smokies, IMHO. The Warriors have four games in Australia and are without Johnson, they are gone too. The Dogs have also got a fairly tough run home, starting in Bris this week.

    I think 8th position will be determined in round 25 at Penrith between the Panthers and Dragons.

    The Top 8 will stay the same as it is now, order may change a little but that'll be the 8

    I think you're right

    the only possible change I see is Penrith and Dragons fighting for 8th and 9th

    Cannot agree, it will be turned upside down by 6 weeks time.

    They will beat the Broncos and give them a shot at 2 to 3 more to boot.
