  1. Roosters - Stacked.
  2. Souths - Probably too high, but just got a feeling in my lower bowel.
  3. Panthers - Out in straight sets though, so suck on that.
  4. Cowboys - Aberation last year, think they will go well.
  5. Warriors - Usually go alright for 2-3 seasons then tank for 5-6 seasons.
  6. Storm - merkins are always up there.
  7. Broncos - Lost about 25% of the GF team. Kev can't fluke another top 4 result.
  8. Titans - They due.
  9. Sharks - This feels about right for one of the baldest coached teams, and f**k me, they deserve to be lower after blowing a decade of easy draws.
  10. Eels - This feels about right for one of the baldest coached teams.
  11. Knights - Pongy will not back up his last half of 2023 effort.
  12. Manly - Will look good until Seibs screws the pooch with some whacky game plan or training regime or Turbo's hamstrings turn to dust.
  13. Dragons - Need to show some grit and not need to use their (lack of) depth.
  14. Bulldogs - Nope. Bought not bred go go f**k themselves.
  15. Dolphins - Will be like a fish out of water in their 2nd year.
  16. Tigers - Benji will be bald by round 3.
  17. Raiders - Ricky's intensity is overdue to blow up a season.
Cody to throw an intercept in the GF to gift the Roosters the premiership in a firey chapter in the Book of Feuds.

1. Roosters

5. Storm
6. Warriors

9. Manly
10. Titans
11. Eels
12. Cowboys
13. Bulldogs
14. Raiders
15. Knights
16. Dragons
17. Tigers

Places 4-12 could be very tightly split, and open to the fact both Knights and Dogs could push their way into that fight too.
For me it’s split into 3 groups this year;

top - Roosters, Panthers, Bronx (wouldn’t be surprised to see 1 of Panthers and Bronx fall this year)

middle - everyone else

bottom - Raiders, Dragons, Tigers and think Knights may slip into this fight

It's similar yeah.

I know the top 8 usually changes by 2 - 3 teams but I couldn't pick a 2nd. Souths and Raiders swap in and out of the 8. I have Souths just making it because their backline is plod central until they get some players back.

I'd probably drop Knights if I were to pick a 2nd team to switch out the 8 so that might be some bias. Hard to know if we build on last year or revert to usual programming.

I have the Dogs, Dragons and Tigers improving but I'm not sure it's enough to take them too far up the ladder. I don't see where the Titans will improve so thats why they got overtaken by those 3 teams.

Roosters up 4 spots, Storm down 2 - so that's a top 4 change.

Similar in the sense the groupings of 4/5 (top 4, bottom 4/5 etc) would be nearly identical, but not the same order.

Titans would have to be the heavy favourites at this stage, but I hope it's the Roosters, as it appears it won't be Brisbane this year. That was a good year though. Ah, memories..!
