Album: The Rise And Fall Thread For 2013
So which teams do you think will perform better and which teams do you think will slide down the ladder from where they where last season? Any one predicting any real big improvers?<br /> <br /> I think Storm & Sea Eagles will again be top 4 material, however I'm still waiting for the season where the storm have injuries to a couple of key players resulting in them barely making the top eight, Personally I hope its next year<br /> <br /> I think Panthers & Sharks will improve, I dont think the Panthers will be top 8 material next year but am expecting them to be better and a top 8 finish in 2014<br /> <br /> The Wests Tigers will continue to struggle imo and it will be interesting to see there new style under a new coach.<br /> <br /> Raiders, Dogs, Cows & Souths will remain about the same. I cant really see them going up or down, And I'm not saying that I dont think these teams could win the premiership as I think they could, They will be there or there abouts, Much like last season. Raiders will be there or there abouts but cant see them challenging for the title.<br /> <br /> Titans and Broncos I'm unsure of, I guess it depends on how predictable they are in attack. They are both good defensive sides, especially the Broncs. <br /> <br /> The Eels, Newcastle and Roosters can only go up after last season I think but the Knights off field dramas will definately have some kind of impact on them. They'll say it won't, but it always does.<br /> <br /> Saint George/Illawarra will continue fall, They must also have some kind of financial issue as they really havn't done much to improve them selves in the off season.<br /> <br /> The Warriors I really dont know, My heart says a top five finish so i'll just go with that.
