Toronto Wolfpack (M.P.G winners)- Have signed some real quality, Leutele far too good for the comp.
Widnes Vikings (M.P.G runners up)- Have kept some good players, Gelling and Inu massive for them.
Toulouse Olympique - Added some real quality oversees. will push above 2 all the way.
Halifax - Have a settled squad, hard to beat at the Shay.
Featherstone Rovers - New young hungry Aus coach, if PNG and Aus lads settle well could be an outside chance.
Bradford Bulls - A season to prove, a good mix of youth and experience in signings.
Leigh Centurions - Will struggle if injuries hit, Dual-Reg with St Helens will see them compete.
Batley Bulldogs - Another team hard to beat at home, typical mid-table team.
Dewsbury Rams - As above, Wakefield Dual-Reg players could be interesting.
Swinton Lions - Good coach in in Littler, tough nuggety squad.
Rochdale Hornets - Coach Carl Forster has an excellent reputation, will lift them a few places in League position
Sheffield Eagles - A season of struggle now they dont have St Helens fringe players to pick.
York City Knights - Not enough quality in signings, new stadium could spur them on up the league when ready.
Barrow Raiders - Someone has to finish bottom! Bullock & Parata big losses. PNG lads may be valuable.
PROUD TO BE A ROBIN!

Ha. Be sure to bring an umbrella out with you. I'd hate for the massive chip on your shoulder to get wet.

Toronto Wolfpack (M.P.G winners ) Money talks...unless they 'bottle it again' in the final.
Widnes Vikings (M.P.G runners up) Unless they have ownership problems...2nd should be theirs.
Toulouse Olympique - Improved last seasons squad. Deffo top 3
Halifax - Nothing much has changed from last season.....4th or 5th
Batley Bulldogs - My surprise top 6 prediction...settled side, don't lose many home games. Great half-backs.
Leigh Centurions - Could make the top 6, like last season...but with a far less expensive squad
Bradford Bulls - Won't lose too many games at odsal...added quality in Webster & Evans. Top coach in John Kear also
Featherstone Rovers - Lost more quality from 2018, than what they have signed. Really struggling with their prediction, could finish 4th or 8th !
York City Knights - Will compete definitely, can't see them being relegated. Good mix of experience & youth
Sheffield Eagles - Mark Aston to 'work wonders' again, thackeray will be crucial though.
Barrow Raiders - Like last season, early season form could be crucial.
Dewsbury Rams - Poor recruitment pre- season, will miss coach Neil Kelly
Swinton Lions - Will miss Bracek & Barlow, hope they stay up...not too confident though
Rochdale Hornets - Can't see them avoiding the bottom 3, great signing in Scott Moore though !

Imagine living your life with a massive hatred of Bradford. How boring must your life be?

People over rate Widnes. Its strength lies in the centres. But centres don't win games unless the team has a strong pack of forwards, and quality halves.

For that reason people should consider Toulouse Olympique, with a decent pack of forwards, and the dazzling duo of Jonathan Ford and Stanislas Robin in the halves, a stronger candidate than Widnes for second place.

Fax obviously. I mean we could point out that we didn't parade the Yorkshire cup, that it wasn't Halifax reserves we beat, and the fact that we are very definitely a team, but he wouldn't want to hear it.

It's a two horse race Toronto and Widnes and they will be the top two sides at the end of the regular season.
As for the rest, Toulouse and Halifax probably 3rd and 4th, wit the rest to follow.

It's a real shame for the comp that Leigh and Fev, with their serious drop in funding, wont be competing for the title and it's probably a season too soon for Bradford. Also, looking forward to seeing York compete.

The debacle with short term funding (or Leigh and Fev's inability to make the top 4), has destroyed the competitiveness of The Championhip, which is a real shame as there should be 5/6 sides with genuine aspirations of making the GF but, instead, it has the look of a Tour de France final stage.
Lets hope that the "edge" returns for the 2020 season.
