Ok, predictions time.
Premiers - Cowboys
Minor Prems - Knights
Surprise packets - Cowboys
Dissappointments - Manly, Dragons
SOO - NSW 2-1
Random prediction(s) - Broncos to look rudderless without Heather. Petero to have that "I finally look my age" year. Dragons and Manly to miss the 8. Tigers to start slowly as usual but heat up as the year goes on. Poor refereeing decisions to be blamed on the Independent Commission. Hayne to be very good without setting the world on fire (leading to questions about his attitude). Titans and Sharks to make the 8.
If I get half of those I'll be happy.
