I thought about it and created a table of where I think teams will finish next season. To be honest it is really difficult separating some of the teams and this list will probably be completely incorrect come the end of the season but here it goes..

1. Storm
2. Roosters
3. Raiders
4. Eels
5. Sea Eagles
6. Broncos
7. Rabbitohs
8. Cowboys
9. Sharks
10. Panthers
11. Knights
12. Tigers
13. Dragons
14. Warriors
15. Bulldogs
16. Titans

edit: I actually had the Broncos lower than 6 but the Brodie Croft signing really improves their chances.

All in. Great rallying call imo, love it. Nowhere to hide for anyone...if you're not all in (the team, the club) why are you there? If you can't commit to being all in (team, club) go home. Simple, easily understood, and really hard to argue against if you're not.
The 'swannie' jersey, same! Finger in the face of usual nrl thinking. Ugly? Yes, and I'll wear it with pride to give a metaphorical finger as well lol. Apart from that, pretty sure Oz probably think they 'own' the good ole kiwi swannie...
Swanndri sponsored us & if that means paying homage to a kiwi classic I'm all in.
Ladder-wise, the sky's the limit.
Like what the clubs doing & the homegrown feel. This years team is better than 2018 so all the way for me :cool:

In the back of your mind, you have to think outside of probably the Storm and the Roosters, next year there will be a melt down from a much vaunted team like the Cowboys and Dragons this year that nobody saw coming. Then you will get a team that rides the confidence wave like the Raiders and the Eels and finish up the ladder that nobody picked either. What am I trying to say, I’ve got no idea either except to expect surprises!

Absolutely - every year there is a team that underperforms and a team that overperforms based on expectation. It is what has always kept the NRL interesting.

Who knows what causes the stars to align or vice versa. The comp is so close that it could be minute changes in team dynamics or coaching tactics or a couple of good rookies coming through. For example Manly will either shrug off their issues at hooker or be severely hamstrung; it depends on loads of other factors. The old sum of all your parts thing comes into play big time.

All I know is that our stars are far and few between, we have few boom rookies, coaching tactics and team dynamics seem below par and we have parts missing etc. I'd be very surprised if we were not bottom 4.

Manly are my smokey,already chucked a lazy 50 on them.
Weren't spectacular last year till the last rounds when everyone noticed them.
Best prop rotation in the comp .
Everyone else just needs to compliment the go forward.
We will do better than last season???
Could make the 8 of the NSW Cup with SK.

Exactly. It's just a case of trying to predict which couple of teams will over perform and which will under perform.

I can see the Cowboys making the 8 this year with the addition of Holmes. I think the Sharks and Panthers will under perform and miss the 8.
Could even see the Rabbitohs missing the 8. Thought the Tigers may have a good year but it depends on them getting Latrell and now the Reynolds situation.

I never rate the Eels but they actually have a bloody good squad this year.

Injuries will be the key factor. Each team has 3-4 players which are essential for them to do well. If 1-2 of them are injured they will struggle.

For us it would be RTS, Harris, Maumolo, maybe CHT. It's more noticeable with a team like Manly. DCE, Tom T, Jake T, Taupau. We saw in the finals that if Manly had Tom T they would have defeated the Rabbitohs. Super teams like the Roosters and Storm can cover injuries much easier because of their good squad depth and balance. And as we saw with the Roosters several years ago when they finished near bottom if you get off to a bad start the losing mentality can take effect and its difficult to turn it around.
