You would have to be an idiot to try and predict how a season will go for a team before a ball is even kicked. Luckily we have those in abundance here at kiwileaguecentral.com. Here is our bold, and probably completely wrong, guess at how season 2016 will go for the Brisbane Broncos.

Last year’s beaten finalists started and finished the season strongly, edging past their rivals to claim the minor premiership, even though Wayne Bennett would probably have preferred they didn’t.
The usual suspects – Corey Parker, Andrew McCullough and Anthony Milford – were all reliable performers across the 24 games, while young Kiwi Kodi Nikorima found another level with an increased on-field role.
Like with most of the top teams Origin wasn’t kind to Brisbane, but they recovered to finish the regular season well.
Where they finished: 1st
Best player: Corey Parker
Best NRL Fantasy player: Corey Parker
Best recruit: James Roberts
