If you want to be slightly optimistic, I reckon our roster (coaching is another matter) is at least as strong as the Titans Tigers and bulldogs if not stronger. There are 4 teams Raiders Storm Rabbits and Roosters who are far superior to us. All the rest have question marks around them from lack of half’s at the Broncos to consistency issues at the Eels, an aging roster at the sharks.
If we have a bit of luck and a couple of players like Isiah and Chanel Harris-Tavita have breakout seasons, combined with some bad luck at other clubs we could just sneak into the 8.
That’s my absolute best case scenario though. I’m still thinking 13th
I would go as far as to say we have a slightly stronger roster than the Tigers, Titans and Bulldogs. However they have superior coaching teams.
I think we will finish somewhere between 11th-15th depending on injuries, game plan and coaching changes.
