I still think the sharks dont make the finals
Take your warranted favorites tag like a ****ing man and stop being such a pansy about it.

Tigers have got stronger, while the other top teams have either fallen away, or stayed as they are. The premiership is the Tigers to lose, so ****ing deal with that.

A few more Kenny Dowall type injuries and they should be given the spoon in April.

I do fancy them to beat a under-strengthed Rabbletohs team in round 1 though.

I can see them getting smoked in the 1st round by improvers of 2012.

As a Knights fan you should be slightly confident of a very good year ahead. They dribbled into the 8 last year with squad that isnt half as good as this years one.

I reckon parramatta may do ok actually.
They lost a lot of close ones last season which could have been avoided if they had that extra 5%.
they've improved their roster and although sandow is hot and cold, he does have that match winning knack about him.

Don't you voodooo jinx us with your "Rabbitohs will be minor premiers this year" spells! Cast it on someone else...

In all honesty we will struggle because... Islanders can't play structured footy...

I'd be happy with top 8... I will preserve judgement til round 3...

& hasnt Kearney gone for a very Islander type team!!!

Surprising that he is a Bellamy disciple & you'd think would be going after a structured team & as you said about a lot of islanders, you struggle with structure, the ad-lib component is fine, but that only works sometimes

Reminds me of Souths a few years ago

Yeah I agree. They have a team of hot and cold players who crack under hard pressure in the last 10 minutes... I put it to you 75% of Parras games last year were lost in the last 10 minutes.

This is true. But every game they played the 'structured' way they didn't even get close.

with hayne, sandow and tonga in your backline they should at least have some points in them. stopping the tries is where they might come undone.
