I think as per normal Leeds and Wigan will be the teams to beat.
Castleford Tigers wont have such a good season like they did last and i expect Warrington Wolves to do much better than last season.
I'm expecting Hull FC to do well again this season and are my outside bet to win the grand final.
Salford Red Devils for me will finish bottom

Catalans will do much better than last year and will challenge for silverware as they prepare for the imminent arrival of their cousins in Toulouse.

Having Catalans and Toulouse in and doing well in Super League will light a fire of public interest and support for rugby league in southwest France. It also will mean 13 more games televised on Sky.

Next stop Avignon.
Toulouse for Championship in 2017, Super League in 2019!

Good point that. If Toulouse do eventually make it to Super League will they have all their home games on Sky like Catalan? Will they have alternate home games so there's always a French home game on a Saturday? Guess if that day ever it's something we can discuss then I guess.

We are expecting that Toulouse will have all their home games available for the French TV network and thus available for Sky.

Actually I miscalculated the number of games that will be telecast. Because Toulouse's entry to SL is likely to be part of an increase from 12 to 14 clubs, Catalans will also have 2 more games to play at home each season. That ,means that we will have 15 more games a year to watch on Sky. But this will be more likely to occur if Catalans and Toulouse play their home games on alternate weekends. It has to be arranged but the RFL can do it if they have the brains to arrange it.

You may want to have another think.

Catalans and Toulouse would play each other home and away.

I think it will be a fight between Saints, Wire and Leeds this year.

Leeds are a 50/50 for me - they could have one of those years where they're on fire (hopefully) and blow most teams away, but they could also really struggle - the loss of McGuire and Burrow is huge, not just in big games, but as part of the fabric of the club. There's still certainly the talent in the squad, but as a unit, who knows how they'll go.

I think Saints will lead the way for most of the year, with Wire not far behind. So, I'm going to go for;

Cup - Saints
League Leaders - Saints
GF - Wire

MoS - Barba
Lance Todd - Barba
Harry Sunderland - Bryson Goodwin


Interesting reading looking back on this thread.... I'm looking good on the prediction front - unfortunately Leeds crashed and burned rather than blowing teams away.
