New Zealand Warriors

Much like the Bulldogs do, the Warriors also posses a game accustomed to the style of hard hitting running and tackling. The ability for Forwards to offload and create chances from nothing however is as much their weakness as it is their strength. Sometimes the Warriors style depends on too much innovation and flare detracting from structure and basics. Boasting a strong front row, Ruben Wiki and Steve Price are the Warriors backbone. The team centres itself around strong and aggressive forward movement and defence. Hooker Nathan Fien provides quick darting movements in and around rucks, a real bonus around lazy markers and tired defence. Look to Rivelli to run the ball to the line, probing with short balls and a good grubber behind defence. Signings were kind to the Warriors in the off season and the arrival of Brett Tate is one of them. Combining with Wade McKinnon at the back, he will provide for lethal counter attack styles of play taking the ball to the line when the forwards are tired. Look for a young 19-year-old back rower in Sonny Fai to step up this year. A Strong, typical Warrior forward capable of making an early name for himself. 5th

Gold Coast Titans

Robbed of a finals appearance in their first season in the NRL by Brisbane, the Titans will this year make the top eight. Stunning performances by Co-captains Anthony Lefranchi and Luke Bailey last year should stand them in good stead for an even better bout at the title this year. Look for Scott Prince's lethal left and right foot step to cause the big men some serious headaches, close to the line Prince can shape to kick or dummy either way and go solo for the line without any problems. A plethora of new names come to the club including Ashley Harrison and Aaron Cannings already adding to a bustling pack. Preston Campbell and Mat Rogers will be frothing for quick ball, but who will deliver it? The search for a number 6 continues and it will need to be addressed urgently. Added depth up front but still thin out back, the Titans will be an unpredictable team hard to tip for or against. 6th







Brisbane Broncos

The Salary cap has hit the Broncos hard this year, Underdogs going into this years competition, the Broncos have lost several of the big names whom have been of great value at the club for so long. Dane Carlaw, Shaun Berrigan, Brent Tate, Brad Thorn, Tame Tapou, and of course Petero Civenoceva, who leaves a big hole up front and a lot for new signing Joel Clinton to fill.  Darren Lockyer will go a way to defining whether this season is his last, depending on results and performances by his outside men and their ability to score tries, Justin Hodges, Darius Boyd and Karmichael Hunt in particular. Tony Carroll is a vital impact player off the bench, he will need to stand up and supply some energy for his team throughout the latter stages of the game. PJ Marsh, who comes in at Hooker from the Eels, will generate metres around the ruck as well as a good box kick from dummy half, another one who can tackle above his weight, look for him to create quick play the balls on the back of lazy defence. The Broncos pick up a good little half back from Penrith in Peter Wallace. A difficult season to predict, it’s really up to three or four men to make a lasting impact. 7th




Cronulla Sharks

Last season the sharks crumbled at the mid way point. Looking to cement a firm top eight position after 10 rounds the Sharks simply lost the plot. This year brings another bite at the cherry and an opportunity to rectify their mistakes and Injury woes. New Captain Paul Gallen rests his lorals on a team determined to make amends. Through Half back Brett Kimmorley the Sharks will look at options late in the tackle count. Simple effective football. Working on territory position, go forward and some options in Greg Bird, who had a stellar season last year. Expect him to do the same. The Sharks will miss Adam Dykes, but look for Karl Filliga to have a big season – labelled the next Sonny Bill Williams, the 19 year old Kiwi should provide some extra spark in a depleted outfit. Rounding out the eight in a tight battle between 9th, 10th and 11th
