1. St Helens
2. Cas
3. Warrington

4. Wigan
5. Wakefield
6. Catalans
7. Hull FC
8. Huddersfield
9. Leeds
10. Hull KR
11. Salford

12. London

Top 3 will be a few points clear of 4th
4-11 probably covered by about 6 or 7 points
Think London look to have a massive job to avoid the wooden spoon but good luck to them.

Predications are so hard. Much depends on luck (or lack of luck) with injuries and also how well new players, particularly those from abroad, settle in and perform.
That aside, I’ll go for:
1. St Helens.
2. Warrington
3. Castleford
4. Wakefield
5. Huddersfield.
6. Wigan (I just have a funny feeling they will struggle without Wane, as well as Tomkins and Bateman).
7. Catalans
8. Leeds
9. Hull F.C.
10. Hull KR
11. Salford
12. London

Grand Final Winners - St Helens.
Challenge Cup Winners - Castleford.
Man of Steel - James Roby. Outside bet - Peter Mata’utia.
Young Player of the Year - Jake Trueman.

Leeds 2nd & GF winners? :CRAZY: What is it that makes you think a team who were lucky to avoid the MPG are capable of winning a GF having barely strengthened?
Wakey 10th? :oops: Top 8 certainties IMO and should probably be in the top 6.

Not sure why you think HKR will finish 7th either though I'm happy to be proved wrong.

in what at we're Leeds lucky to avoid the MPG, they were well clear with a game to spare and in reality were never in the The running for MPG so why were they lucky, and why can't they finish second and win GF they did it in 2017 after being in middle 8's in 2016 and Warrington made both finals after being in middle 8's year before, and as for barely strenthening, 2 halfback one centre two new forwards including two margue top draw signings, cannot think of many sides in SL history strengthens so much in off season, Leeds certainly not added so much in an off season since GH took over, I think you are hopping nay praying for Leeds to fail because deep down you know they will be pushing for top 3-5 maybe not GF next season but will be in the trophies again within 2 seasons.
Oh and Wakefield top 8 certainties, don't think so, one half decent seasona in 20 years does not make them a top side and contenders, avoiding the bottom 4 will be an achievement for them, anything else a bonus, Hull Kr, Huddersfield all strengthens much more than Wakefield and cannot see Hull being as bad this year and if they are Radford will be gone by Easter.

Anyone heard owt about Gale doing his Achilles? Were it true, that'd put a spanner in some predictions...

1 saints
2 wigan (dont write them off ever)
3 warrington

5 cas
6 leeds
7 hull fc
8 wakey

Castleford have no chance of making the top 5 without Lucas Gale. Even with him playing they will struggle to make the top 5.

It appears to many objective observers that the top 5 will be:

1. Warrington
2. St Helens
3. Catalans
4. Leeds
5. Wigan

Then:

6. Castleford
7. Huddersfield
8. Wakefield
9. Hull FC
10. Hull KR
11. London
12 Salford

Cas finished 3rd last year with gale missing for over half the year. Jacob Trueman will be the main man. I've no idea where we will finish but I don't think we will fall off a cliff.
"I'm sorry, but I would hope that we would beat Cas with a 1 day turnaround."

An arrogant Wigan fan a few days before we stuffed them 18-4 at the JJB.

Out for all 2019.
Then again, he didn’t play much in 2018 and wasn’t fit when he came back towards the end of the year.

Of course Jean,it would be silly to put Catalans outside the top 5 wouldn't it? :roll:
