Yes, its that time of year again when every two bit joker thinks they are an expert and makes their season predictions.
Well, we are no better (or worse) than everyone else, so here we go - here are our 2017 NRL season predictions;
Premiers - Melbourne. Their 'premiership window' is closing and they know it. It is this year or bust!
Daly M winner - Corey Norman. The Eels will be looking for a big year and assuming Corey keeps away from his bikie mates he will be a big chance at taking out this prestigious award.
Roughie to make the 8 - The Tigers. With Robbie the Rebel now a Rabbit, the Tiger cubs will learn to roar this seahson.
Roughie to miss the 8 - The Sharks. For anyone who follows the EPL, the Sharks will follow the path of Leicester City this season.
Wooden spoon - Newcastle. Not much value here and we hope we are wrong. This great rugby league city deserves better.
That's it from us. Do what you will with this information. We see two options - toilet paper or remind us of how wrong we were in 7 months time.
BTW... a sneaky $10 multi on these predictions will pay a handsome dividend of $12,150!!! We're off to the TAB...
