1. Dragons- Will go through another regular season with the minor premiership... Still in search of some game breakers and a genuine half..
2. Eels- Will consolidate on their miracle run
3. Storm- Not loosing many players
4. Brisbane- Loosing Taylor is a blow, but they have a good pool of talent with a city of such large proportions... Might miss Hunt a bit as well
5. Tigers- really see us being premiership contenders next year... Us and Brisbane for 4 and 5 is a 50/50 call..............
6. Dogs- If anything happens to Kimmorley they are gone... personally i think they are pretty average
7. Manly- Filth will fall to 7th
8. Rabbitohs- A gun forward pack wins them some matches...

1. Eels
2. Storm
3. Dragons
4. Bulldogs
5. Tigers
6. Titans
7. Manly
8. Knights

Souths have a good forward pack but without Wing's experience there I reckon they'll be very inconsistent.

I believe we will sign both Lote and Lima... if not Lima, we'll retain Galea IMO...

With that... i think the Tigers and the Eels will have too much for most teams next season
  1. Tigers - Recruited extremely well for the first time in 10yrs! Signed good depth along with the formation of some real strike power in the backs with speed and size!
  2. Eels - Recruited well, but how are they under the cap? They could definitely loose key players before the season starts... also I am not sold on Hayne being worth 2mil!!! If they don't win it next season, they won't win it for at least another four.
  3. Storm - They don't seem to suffer injuries! No real depth but as long as Smith, Slater, Cronk and a few forwards stay injury free... they are always going to be a well oiled machine!
  4. Dragons - Strong side and smart side now under Bennett
  5. Dogs - Had a dream run this season... won't make the four but will push for it... I thought they were lucky in a few games this season
  6. Manly - If they keep Orford they will cruise but not have enough to win imo, if they sign Pearce (what I'm hearing...) they won't make the eight
  7. Brisbane - Getting old and have a lot of over-rated, over-paid players... no Hunt means they'll struggle too imo but they'll scrap into the eight i think
  8. Sharks - Recruited well and were crippled by injuries this season. Morris IMO will prove a very good addition to their side in the 9 jersey
    -------------
  9. Cowboys - Lost a few this season and they just seem a very inconsistent side... Gallant will prove a good buy but I think they'll struggle to string wins together
  10. Knights - Poor recruitment and no depth.. a few injuries will hurt them but they are always a side that play the 80mins and the young blokes seem to lift.
  11. Raiders - Could prove me wrong... i think a smokey for the eight... no chance of winning the comp i think... but i always find the raiders the hardest team to predict.
  12. Titans - Have they even brought anyone? No depth, injuries will kill them.
  13. Panthers - As long as Sammut is there... they will leak points... they also seem to be a dysfunctional team in my eyes..
  14. Warriors - Lost all there decent players and kept the duds... They can't seem to attract anyone worth while and with an aging side... I can't see them winning much..
  15. Roosters - These guys are helpless...
  16. Souths - These guys are hopeless... Big BIG forward pack... but they are also a SLOW forward pack... Hopeless back-line will ensure they don't put much on the scoreboard and most teams i think will run rings around these guys...

I don't mean to be mister negative but I can't see how Wests have recruited all that well.

Daniela and Brown are reserve graders.
Taumata has already been sacked from 4 clubs.
Cayless is injury prone, as is Topou.
Fitzhenry :roll:

Wests will be lucky to make the top 8. If we don't make the top 8 then Folkes should take over as Coach in 2011 with Matthew Johns as Assistant Coach.
