None of you gents have started a generic top 8 thread so I’ll start one off with some banger predictions. 1. Storm 2. Brisbane 3. Manly 4. Souths 5. Panthers 6. Bulldogs 7. Roosters 8. Tigers 9. Eels 10. Cowboys 11. Dragons 12. Knights 13. Warriors 14. Cronulla 15. Canberra 16. Titans No I haven’t been smoking crack. I expect some major ladder movement in the name of Roosters, Canberra and Eels. The Roosters are done this year. They can’t keep it up I think they’ll be in the top 8 but on the verge of slipping out. You don’t replace Cronk with an 8 game experience halfback and expect the same results. Every year 2 teams from the top 8 fall out and one falls out hard. My prediction is Canberra are going to have a rude shock this year and teams aren’t going to fall into their stripping tactics like last year. Eels are getting ridden way too hard and I expect a good start but a really poor finish from them. Out of all the bottom 8 teams from last year I think Penrith, Tigers, Bulldogs and Cowboys all have the potential to do way better but I think Holmes at fullback might take some time. Yours are welcome gents.
