Can't beat a Wakey/Leeds arguement, seems to be a common theme this off season.

Really hard to predict this year, London apart it looks really tight on paper, here are my predictions.

Saints
Warrington
Leeds
Wigan
Hull
Wakey
Catalans
Cas
Rovers
Hudds
Salford
London

Can see maybe HKR finishing above Hull this year if their new players gel.
But will go for the above for now.

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.


Ok that hurt my brain a little bit reading that, a few extra full stops would definitely have helped!

Re: Avoiding the MPG. Leeds were handed 2 points against Salford by the ref as Myler cheated to get you a late match winning penalty. Ok so even without that penalty it would have been a draw but that one point would have meant you'd avoided being in the MPG by a single point. Not exactly ripping up trees was it?

Re: Leeds strengthening. Yes you've signed a couple of decent Aussies (tho I've heard Hurrell isn't the same player he was) but you've got an old pack and you've lost your best winger (the only world class player you had).

Re: Wakey. Far more strength in depth in that Wakey squad than you give them credit for and an already huge forward pack reinforced by one of SL's most underrated forwards (Kopczak). I'm sure most SL fans would take Wakey's pack over Leeds' (except Leeds fans of course). Throw in a few backs with pace to burn and if they don't finish comfortably in the 8 then they've seriously underperformed. If everyone on here is correct and the whipping boys are Salford and London then they basically need to finish above 2 other teams. Shouldn't be too much of a problem IMO. Don't think HKR will be in the mix either... yes they've strengthened but in all honesty they were way short of a top 8 team last year.

Cas are a very overrated side. They’re a team with largely bang average players and have been punching above their weight for a few years due to a great coach and other sides underperforming. There will come a point were their refusal to sign any big name players will cost them and I fancy that could happen this season. I am surprised by the amount of people who have put Cas in their top 3 on social media. Mata’utia as an outside bet for MOS is a ridiculous prediction as well.

I’d go for:
1. Saints
2. Wire
3. Wigan
4. Leeds
5. Catalans
6. Cas
7. Hull fc
8. Wakey
9. Huddersfield
10. Salford
11. Hull Kr
12. London.

I see you are still upset we beat you in semi final 15 month ago. I would take our forwards over any in superleague. However I do agree with you about our 1 to 7. Looking very weak.
