    How do you see it?

    Teams to beat, who improves, who falls away?

    What's your top 8?

    Way too early for this. Player movements between now and March will play a huge role.

    For shits and giggles:

    1. Roosters
    2. Rabbitohs
    3. Sharks
    4. Broncos
    5. Storm
    6. Dragons
    7. Warriors
    8. Tigers

    Roosters, Penrith and Sharks to make the top three in no particular order with Melbourne coming 4th. Souths, Dragons and Warriors to fall just short of the top four. Eighth spot to be a little further back and fought between Newcastle and Brisbane.

    Parra to go back to back.

    Canberra to have another shit season and have their coach be protected by Paul Kent again.

    With plenty of player movement to come it’ll be almost impossible to predict anything this early. I’ll give it a go though:

    1-Knights
    2-14 - don’t care
    15-Brisbane
    16-Manly

    Sharks are going to be the team to really drop down next year. Their backline has been decimated and they only brought in a declining Morris. They still have a good front row but the loss of Lewis and Wade Graham for a portion of the year will hurt. They will be in the dog fight for the bottom of the 8 and if Holmes signs early with the Cowboys then it could be even worse for them.

    Numbers 15 and 16 to swap places.

    Manly will never get a wooden spoon.

    99% of these will be the exact same as last years except for the posters team improving their position.

    Every year 3-4 teams that made the 8 miss out the next year. That won’t change in 2019.

    I am basing mine on the NRL average 2 teams from last year's top 4 dropping out and 4 teams from the top 8.

    1 warriors (surely it is time for them to be in top 4)
    2 roosters
    3 storm
    4 dragons
    5 raiders
    6 wests
    7 knights
    8 cowboys

    Pick any order you like for the bottom 8.

    I don't necessarily think any of sharks penrith brisbane and souths will miss out but history says 3-4 top 8 teams will miss out the following year.

    Cowboys could find their way back into the top 8 next year. This year would’ve certainly brought them down to earth and taught them lessons and they will be better for it. Clifford looks like a good prospect and they have recruited well. Green isn’t a total spud coach either.
