    Where will the Manly Sea Eagles finish in 2019?

    A very accurate assessment of the team. The plodders are what will bring them down and any injuries to either the Trbojevic brothers will see them fall near the bottom of the ladder.

    Where will the Gold Coast Titans finish in 2019?

    The Titans have made some great additions - Peachey, Boyd & Kelly - whilst also having a great deal of depth. From the pre-season reports I have seen Taylor is in-shape and Cartwright is putting in. I have great optimism for the Titans in 2019 and can see them making the 8.

    Where will the Brisbane Broncos finish in 2019?

    I'm surprised 5th to 8th is the most voted for option. The more I look at the Broncos and hear from the players on Seibold the higher I think they will finish.

    Where will the Melbourne Storm finish in 2019?

    Lost a irreplaceable Slater and a representative front rower with no replacements signed. As we saw with Croft in 2018, Hughes will take some time in adjusting to the week-to-week grind. Kasiano fills Glasbys spot but he didn't meet expectations in 2018. Throw in a contract stand off involving...

    Where will the Manly Sea Eagles finish in 2019?

    A very accurate assessment. Too much quality to finish with the spoon but players not up to NRL standard making the 17.

    Where will the Canberra Raiders finish in 2019?

    I find it strange the Raiders have let go of both Boyd and Paulo, who were quality front rowers, and replaced them with the untested Sutton. The squad is lacking front rowers with Soliola a makeshift front rower whilst Liu and L.Bateman are more suited to lock. Guler looks promising and...

    Name the most random NRL player you can think of

    Where will the Brisbane Broncos finish in 2019?

    I agree that Pantai isn't a prop but difficult to find a spot for everyone in the 17. Staggs looks to be the unlucky one to miss out with Bird then going centre, Pangai to lock, Ofahengaue to prop and then unsure who takes the bench spot. Huge depth in the centres and back row

    Where will the Parramatta Eels finish in 2019?

    Agree with Mahoney over Pritchard. Don't know much about Salmon but thought he was a half. Also haven't seen any of Dylan Brown so can't comment on those two. Manu Ma'u in my eyes the Eels best player last season so surprised you have him on the bench. Based on your 17 where do they finish?

    Where will the Canterbury Bulldogs finish in 2019?

    Kieran Foran definitely lacks creativity going off his form from the last 3 seasons. I watched him and he was great for the Bulldogs but I will reserve my complete judgement as he has only played 9 NRL games.

    Where will the Parramatta Eels finish in 2019?

    That's my top 17 but poll is based upon the strongest line-up. Interested to hear what changes you wake to the 17 as well.

    Where will the Wests Tigers finish in 2019?

    I think the Tigers season is very dependent on Packer, Matulino, Twal and Eisenhuth. No player from the Tigers forward pack averaged more than 100m per game last season. If they can lay the platform Brooks, Reynolds and Mbye can create for the backline which is more than comfortable in...

    Where will the Canterbury Bulldogs finish in 2019?

    I’m not so sure they’re are an improved side on last season. They have a strong backrow and that’s where it ends. I think their spine lacks any type of creativity whilst the backline has one player with good NRL experience. In terms of scoring points I can’t see where it’s going to come from...

    Where will the Penrith Panthers finish in 2019?

    Completely agree, experience is an underestimated quality. Anyone of Edwards, DWZ and Aekins could be a superstar and its a matter of choosing the right one. At hooker it sounds as though Egan is the future although he isn't quite up to a regular NRL spot yet. The future is bright and is a...

    Where will the Brisbane Broncos finish in 2019?

    Broncos make the top eight with little difficulty. The question is how will Gillett and Bird perform. If they can fire, I have them top 4 material and a major minor premiership contender. Siebold had a game plan at the Rabbitohs that worked within everyone's strengths. The issue with the...

    Where will the Parramatta Eels finish in 2019?

    Agree with everything said in this post. My question to this is - what is Gutherson's best position? If Parra could get M.Jennings off their books (opportunity looks gone now) and sign a half decent center, I have the Eels in my 8. I do still think there is some comings and goings to be had...

    Where will the New Zealand Warriors finish in 2019?

    With the money Johnson was on surely there is a replacement signed before the start of the season. Johnson is said to be on close to $1 million. You don't just leave that much space in your cap. Without Johnson they won't make the eight but I can't help but think they have something planned...

    Where will the Sydney Roosters finish in 2019?

    Agree with the opening comments but do somewhat worry about the depth in the forwards. Lindsay Collins make the bench and he isn't quite up to regular NRL standard. Past the strongest 17 Nat Butcher is the only player with decent NRL experience... I have them within the top 4 but as all...
