    The top 8 next year look to be getting closer in worthiness for a ticket in the cup lottery, there are an obvious handful if their injuries are less than the others could win The Shield

    Warriors
    Knights
    Eels
    Dragons
    Panthers
    Tigers
    Titans (Hayneless)
    Raiders

    are my cup winner wish list in no particular order with of course Storm winning The Shield

    I highly doubt the Premiers will completely miss the top eight in 2018. I also doubt the Raiders will miss the top eight again with the squad they have (they lost eight games by six points or less in 2017). I also can't see the Bulldogs coming last.

    I think it's a pretty safe bet the Roosters and Cowboys will make the top four.

    I haven't typed up my list yet but my favourite for the spoon is the Titans.

    We are also struggling to be cap compliant so now we have whatever his salary sitting there as dead money. Its so f**ked.

    We might not get the spoon but we are in trouble.

    That's a massive blow. Not sure the Raiders could have suffered a worse loss than that one.

    Who's likely to take his place? Hopefully a cheapy who gets good minutes for Super Coach.

    Play Garvey at 9 and put the pressure on the halves. They are both capable and are playing under par. Could bring the best out of all of them. Garvey was pretty good in limited time at Canterbury from memory.

    Scott nearly returned for the grand final this year Hodgson could be back late season? Raiders need to be cusp of 8 when/if he returns at least.

    He’ll be back late in the season but still it’s a pretty rough go

    he’s the difference between them just scraping into the 8 or contending for a top 4 spot imo

    I’m really surprised no one has laid the blame at Bennett for keeping Hodgson on. After all it’s been a while since we had a bit of Bronco bashing.
