Bulldogs v Dragons
I can't see the Bulldogs losing this one. They have too many star players and are always usually good starters.
Bulldogs by 6-12
Tigers v Eels
The Eels have bought well during the off season and I think there line-up again has too many stars for a team that many pick will be battling it out with Souths for the Wooden Spoon.
Eels by 12+
Roosters v Souths
The Roosters will get up nice and easy for this one, although could be closer than most think, with Finch out for a few weeks and no Brad Fittler.
Roosters by 12+
Sharks v Panthers
Altough the Sharks are tough to beat at home the Panthers have a settled side and will be up for the challenge.
Panthers by 6-12
Broncos v Cowboys
This will be a very tough game, although I'm tipping the Broncos by more than 12, with the sell-out home crowd and Thorn & Hodges returning, there are too many points in the Broncos.
Broncos by 12+
Warriors v Manly
Manly have bolsted their forward pack with Kennedy & Kite, but the Warriors are tough to beat at home and with Price & Wiki they have an even stronger forward pack also.
Warriors by 12+
Storm v Knights
Johns will either be better for the year off, or rusty. I'm going with rusty and the Knights have proven they are ******** unless he is at his best.
