    Same process as last season.


    Who better to ask where a certain team will finish than the fans of the team themselves!


    With their strongest line up where would you have them finishing?

    1, Nick Meaney
    2. Christian Crichton
    3. Will Hopoate
    4. Kerrod Holland
    5. Reimis Smith
    6. Lachlan Lewis
    7. Kieran Foran
    8. Aiden Tolman
    9. Michael Lichaa
    10. Dylan Napa
    11. Josh Jackson
    12. Rhyse Martin
    13. Adam Elliott

    Sauaso Sue
    Danny Fualalo
    Raymond Faitala-Mariner
    Corey Harawira-Naera

    I don't understand your vote @Daza06 - Bulldogs finished 12th in 2018, and for 2019, have an improved side, recruited fairly well, and released a lot of players who were past their best, yet you have them doing even worse than 2018. Why's that?

    I’m not so sure they’re are an improved side on last season. They have a strong backrow and that’s where it ends.

    I think their spine lacks any type of creativity whilst the backline has one player with good NRL experience. In terms of scoring points I can’t see where it’s going to come from.

    Yes players like Smith, Lewis and Martin has a great 2018 but I would like to see them do it over the entirety of 26 rounds.

    I never like to tip a team to come last but if I had to the Bulldogs would be favourites for me at the moment.

    Where do you see the strengths in the Bulldogs side?

    You think Kieran Foran lacks creativity?

    Did you watch Lachlan Lewis this year?

    Kieran Foran definitely lacks creativity going off his form from the last 3 seasons.

    I watched him and he was great for the Bulldogs but I will reserve my complete judgement as he has only played 9 NRL games.

    Foran's barely played the last few seasons - when he did get on the field for any meaningful time at the Warriors he seemed to be hitting some good form again. If he can stay on the park I'd back him to help lift our performances significantly. Paired with a rising star like Lewis I think we have a fairly solid spine. Meaney has plenty of promise based on his performances at Newcastle too.

    The backline is definitely promising but I would like to see how Lewis goes in the halves with Foran. It will also be interesting to see how Lichaa will go this year as not only is he playing for a contract, but there are some youngsters in the team who will be looking to try and make their way into the FG squad.

    One can only hope.

    Their third Wooden Spoon in the NRL era. I wouldn’t complain.

    Holland and Critchon in the backline is not going to work

    Foran within 1000 miles of the team is not going to work

    No Klemmer is not going to work

    If we avoid the bottom 2 we are doing well
