    Get em in for eternal glory or embarrassment

    I tipped Parra for the premiership in 2018 and haven't been able to sleep ever since. Dark times.

    The categories are

    LADDER 1-16
    GRAND FINAL AND PREMIERS
    ORIGIN (2-1 or sweep)
    DALLY M
    FIRST COACH SACKED (in which we'll count no contract for 2020 as sacked, BUT this can be trumped by an immediate sacking)
    WILDCARD PREDICTION (anything you want, not covered in the above)

    Roosters
    Souths
    Storm
    Broncos
    Knights
    Panthers
    Raiders
    Tigers
    Cowboys
    Dragons
    Sea Eagles
    Warriors
    Sharks
    Titans
    Bulldogs
    Eels

    GF Souths def Broncos
    SOO NSW 2-1
    DM Mitchell Pearce
    Coach Brad Arthur

    Bold prediction:
    Justin Holbrook will be the next coach signed up

    Imo Easts another MP but not b2b

    NRL GFs have a habit of throwing up the dream news story and you won't go past Bennett v Broncos this year

    Not easy picking a top 8, with all the coaching changes there’s a lot of teams that I could see surprising.
