    The only possible way will be in the first say month he puts in Dally M level performances and raises everyone's hopes and then for the rest of the season he averages sub 40m per game, 5 errors, 5 penalties and no missed tackles from zero attempts

    Just trying to work this out. You're saying we will will finish 6th yet BA will be punted mid-year? I can only assume that for this scenario to work out we would need to be in a perilous position on the table mid season, yet recover enough under another coach to get to 6th. BTW, you're not the only one who said this.

    My prediction is based on a struggle before mid season. Change is made and players take a liking to what MP has to offer and becomes head coach.


    *Disclaimer. This is all a guess of course, we could just as easily go on to win the comp with BA at the helm.

    Where will we finish? We will make the 8, but somewhere between 5th and 8th only

    Best player?
    Blake Ferguson

    Biggest disappointment?
    After 2018, would be hard to be more disappointed in anyone who was here then, so I am going to say Junior Paulo who effectively has the weight of our forward pack on his shoulders.

    First rookie to make NRL debut?
    I know heaps are saying Sivo, but I reckon we will see a forward debut before a back and I reckon Stefano Utoikamanu will get the nod as soon as he is eligible (Round 17).

    Surprise packet?
    Not sure how Lane can be a surprise, the guy played every game last season, scored 9 tries which was 6 more than any of our forwards and averaged 96 metres per game. My surprise packet will be Kaysa - I will be surprised if he gets past round 4 without an injury.

    Breakout year?
    Kaufusi or Niukore

    Best retention?
    If this is at the end of 2019 then probably Gutho although we will have him wrapped up before Round 4. Biggest surprise retention (to forumites) will be BA.

    Biggest name we let go? Mannah because he has been a loyal servant.

    Biggest signing? I think going into 2020 we will be looking for a top class centre and not sure who is currently available that would fit that bill. So I will say Cameron Munster just for shits and giggles. Realistically, though I reckon we will land one of the Burgess twins for 2020 as they won't like Uncle Wayne.

    Will Brad Arthur be retained, if not who will replace him?
    Yes

    ##Disclaimer: I reserve the right to change any and all of the above at anytime before Round 1, 2019.

    Thank f**k there's a disclaimer. I'm not making a prediction yet because the silly season appears to be in full swing. Christmas, New Year, etc, a lot more saliva to be dribbled before a ball gets kicked in earnest.

    I don’t normally do the predictions thread, but was bored at home.

    I will do my predictions later. I did ask Mick.

    Direct quote from Mick
    What desperados are you talking too in your spare time. Half of them are probably trying to groom you for a root. Now make yourself usefull and get me a beer cause your standing around like a bloody spare dick in an orgy.
    And forget Parra. There as much chance of making the finals as the Dogs. None.

    Disappointment is based on expectations. So how can we predict we will be disappointed?

    An individual can predict that others will be disappointed. Although not in Taka's case.
