Dragons should be challenging for the 8, especially if the 3 young kids they have live up to expectations. I think they are still a few years off being real challengers though. They won't go near the spoon.

Cowboys - they're so so bald. Dearden and Townsend as halves options, those two couldn't fry an egg.

Cameron Munster. He'll get his head sorted and then watch out.

New Zealand Warriors, sadly they'll just miss out on the 8 because of a badly timed injury to Shaun Johnson.
