    Sliders
    Pennies - Way too many coaches at that club
    Bronx -way too many high priced duds and so few leaders
    Risers
    TItans Tigers Cows These three clubs look the best chance.
    Left the Newcs out as Roster roundabout factor might take another year

    Yep

    Val and Luke Lewis have been the sharks best attacking weapons. Losing them both and keeping Gallen will shift them even further back into the grinding style.

    They had that record breaking NYC side 2 years ago yet the only guy they brought into first grade was Jesse Ramien and now he’s gone.

    Flanagan’s reluctance to try anything new or blood any young players will catch up with them big time this year IMO

    I have no f**king idea on how next year will go, none of us do obviously. I just have improvers, about the same and sliders.

    Improvers:
    Bulldogs, Tigers, Raiders, Manly & Newcastle

    About the same
    Dragons, Roosters, Storm, Eels, Rabbitohs & Titans

    Sliders
    Penrith, Cowboys, Warriors, Broncos & Sharks

    My guess at a ladder
    Top 3
    Rabbitohs
    Roosters
    Storm

    In contention for the 8
    Dragons
    Tigers
    Manly
    Sharks
    Newcastle
    Warriors
    Broncos
    Raiders
    penriff (sorry)
    Bulldogs

    Cellar dwelling
    Eels
    Titans
    Cowboys

    So you think the Warriors are in contention for the 8 twice?

    It is all idle speculation. The Roosters will win it with their eyes closed, assuming the Big Five -- Cronk, Keary, Tedesco, Mitchell and Manu -- stay fit.

    Hard to argue considering they must be $2 million over the cap.

    That is neither our home or away Jersey.

    Cronk needs to get fit before he can stay fit.

    Cronk's surgery was successful. He will be ready to go in March.

    Roosters, Storm, Souths and Panthers are probably the only real certainties for the 8 I believe.

    I reckon up to seven other teams are thereabouts to be fighting it out for the remaining four spots in the eight in the Broncos, Manly, Dragons, Newcastle, Wests, Cronulla & the Warriors.
