Tbh playing Brisbane week 1 is probably the best draw you can hope for out of any of the 7 possible opposition. I have us finishing 6th and then 7th, but our record at Suncorp is good either way and we are well supported in Qld.I have us finishing 7th and Brisbane 6th... actually equal 5th with Souths, but positions determined on for and against.
Should also mention I have the roosters missing the 8 and Canberra sneaking in. Will come down to the Souths game at the new stadium opening. Poor roosters first game being knocked out of finals contention would suck, and be funny.
Are they though? They just got past Manly who had half their team out, had a good game vs the broncos, and then ran over a cowboys team that is floundering imo...Roosters are running very HOT. I can see them winning out.
