Here we go, the top four in my opinion in 2015 – Agree or disagree? I would love to hear your thoughts!
NEW ZEALAND WARRIORS
It’s about time the Warriors made the eight, and with their best roster since 2002, they will pose some serious questions to sides this year.
Usually they are great at home, but I feel they will turn the corner away from home too, which will make the big difference.
A full pre-season under Andrew McFadden is going to prove a great help.
The Warriors will learn to be the team everyone wants them to be this season.
SOUTH SYDNEY RABBITOHS
The Premiers will finish 3rd in the regular season. They will be tough, gritty, incredible and flashy – and they will get the job done.
They only finish third just, with two and one just being ahead of them on points differential.
The Souths juggernaut will be just as impressive this year, and with new players to earn the respect of the current playing group.
NORTH QUEENSLAND COWBOYS
The Cowboys are going to finish runners up to the Minor Premiership, only because of points for and against. The Cowboys will be a team to watch closely in 2015.
They have been there abouts the last three years – but this is a year they will properly stamp themselves as premiership contenders.
If you’re a Cowboys fan, you’ll love to watch them flourish in to second this season and will be excited by their playoff prospects.
Clearly’s troops are going to be the real deal in 2015. This is a man who has brought together a bunch of boys, and turned them in to men.
I don’t see much going wrong in the Panthers season. They will show up from game one and show just what they are made of.
Premiership credentials are written all over their squad. They will be great to watch, and they will be hard to beat. Penrith Panthers will be the Minor Premiers.
