General 2022 Ladder Predictions

Predict Your Ladder

Closest will be praised as a Nostrodamus like Figure and hailed in Forum glory!

1. ROOSTERS
2. PANTHERS
3. PARRA
4. RABBITS
5. STORM
6. BRONCOS
7. SHARKS
8. WARRIORS

9. MANLY
10. TIGERS
11. TITANS
12. RAIDERS
13. RED V
14. BULLDOGS
15. KNIGHTS
16. COWBOYS

I do have some reasoning here.

1.Broncos + Adam Reynolds will improve a lot imo.
2.Sharks + Fitzgibbon will improve lots too.
3. Manly is a good side but outside of turbo they're nothing special, weather Dez can get more out of them + an aging roster doesn't help.
4. Knights are fucked without Brailey and Pearce imo. Ponga can only fo do much.
5. Storm and Rabbits and Manly are the sliders I think. You can never write off the storm but theyres been a lot of drama and Jesse Broms only getting older.. Rabbits with a rookie 7 and new Coach... Latrell back helps
6. Cowboys team looks mud , Payten took the wrong job... Red V like a team full of outcasts and Bargain bin buys.
7. Had to put the warriors in the finals so #8 lol

I'll have a stab at forum greatness!

1 Storm
2 Roosters
3 Manly
4 Penrith
5 Eels
6 Titans
7 Rabbitoes
8 Broncos
9 Raiders
10 Sharks
11 Warriors
12 Bulldogs
13 Dragons
14 Knights
15 Tigers
16 Cowboys
 
1 Panthers they will be a dynasty for a few years
2 Storm top class coaching
3 souths latrell to be Jarryd Hayne of 2009
4 rooster get their half back
5 manly Tom will be consistent and back up in 2022 what he did in 2021
6 Titans if they fire Patrick Herbert into the sun they will make the top 6.
7 Canberra like their halves
8 Warriors all aboard we are going to the finals
9 eels have lost some Kents and thus team is a form side. If they go on a losing skid it will hurt their self confidence
10 broncos biggest improver but still some passengers. Eg tesi nui at fullback is the worst number one in the comp by some stretch
11 knights they will acquire some more players soon
12 cowboys too many good backs to get the spoon
13 Bulldogs the fact Kyle Flanagan is still in the top 30 says their coaching staff are still idiots
14 Sharks nicho Hynes will be useless
15 st George will start with 5 wins in a row and then go one and nineteen to finish the year
16 tigers madge does not have enough rope to make any gutsy calls that might be needed
He is dead man walking. Tigers for spoon

Why Titans so low
What is your analysis on them ?
 
1 - Panthers
2 - Roosters
3 - Manly (totally injury dependant)
4 - Storm
5 - Warriors (Depth, Shaun Johnson factor)
6 - Titans
7 - Broncos (Reynolds)
8 - Rabbits
9 - Raiders
10 - Knights
11 - Bulldogs (building - will surprise)
12 - Eels (big drop)
13 - Sharks (over rated without Shaun Johnson)
14 - Tigers
15 - Dragons
16 - Cowboys (Sorry Todd)
I disagree with you Wizards that cows will be last
The 2022 tigers and dragons will be epically bad

3 way shit fight for the spoon and I don’t spend much time analysing shit… 😂
I actually do follow the spoon closely moreso than who wins the minor premiership
I watch the warriors every week and then two or three of the bottom feeder teams play. I especially like a bottom of the table clash like 14th vs 16th
I don’t know why those poor teams attract my attention
I guess they play with more desperation and effort even though much less skill
I like how dejected the 16th ranked team looks when they lose another match !!!
 
1. Panthers
2. Roosters
3. Storm
4. Sea Eagles
5. Rabbitohs
6. Sharks
7. Eels
8. Broncos
9. Warriors
10. Raiders
11. Bulldogs
12. Titans
13. Knights
14. Dragons
15. Tigers
16. Cowboys

Surprised I ended up having the Warriors as high as 9th however there’s a long tail of average to poor teams once you move beyond the top 6-7.
 
1 roosters
2 panthers
3 storm
4 manly
5 parra
6 titans
7 souths
8 warriors 👀

9 raiders
10 broncos
11 bulldogs
12 sharks
13 knights
14 tigers
15 dragons
16 cowboys 🥄

Raiders should make it but Ive been to Bruce stadium a couple of times and it’s farkin freezing so Ive decided they’re all gonna get smashed by carona all year and struggle for players (plus I need to slip us in there so I don’t get abused by wrighty)

Here you go, I think the bottom 8 was harder than the top 8

1 - Storm - Always consistent, still got a strong team
2 - Roosters - Key player back and if all fit and not suspended
3 - Penrith - lost some key players and will start the slide, hard to be motivated for the 2nd year
4 - Souths - Should be OK, yes lost a key player, but have enough around them to survive
5 - Manly - Turbo stays fit, they are a good team
6 - Eels - Same team
7 - Sharks - new coach, younger halves, should be OK
8 - Raiders - Tough one could plummet easily down the ladder
9 - Broncos - will become more consistent, but still not good enough
10 - Warriors - it's our year....
11 - Tigers - Forwards aren't very good and neither is their half back
12 - Dragons - Too many changes unsure of the coach, rely too much on youth
13 - Titans - flash in the pan, moving a FB to halves may not work. Forwards apart from one(Tino) are weak
14 - Bulldogs - signed a lot of backs, games are won starting in the forwards.
15 - Knights - injuries, will miss Pearce, coach is a knob.
16 - Cowboys - bad bad signings, star player not jabbed.
