    I thought the Tigers and the Warriors would make it, but they both look in trouble.

    Broncos, Sharks and I'll still run with the Dogs to join the Storm at this stage.

    Broncos and Storm are surely a given. As for the other two, I agree with AuckMel about the Dogs; I reckon they'll make it. For the fourth berth I reckon I'd go with the Cowboys.

    I LoLed when I wrote it too, but form his hard to deny and they have it in spades right now. Their next 3 games (Eels, Raiders, Souths) are all winable up to the Storm game.

    It's April mate.

    Much better sides will pass them by seasons end. Todd is a fine player, but he's not that good.

    Although, in fairness on current form you do have an argument. My only certainties would be the Billy's obviously & Brissie.

    Warriors will be there. Manly, the Storm and Broncos will round out the four.

    Forgot about Manly. Quite right NU.


    So that would leave 1 spot. Not sure if Warriors can be consistent enough.

    They've got to start better. Consistently giving 8-16 point head starts. Gotta hold the ball too and it's the main reason they keep giving up starts.

    Storm will definitely be up there. I'd actually like to see the rabbits in the top 4, but that's unlikely. but I agree with what other people are saying, warriors, broncos and manly sounds about right.

    On current form the Warriors wont get near the top 4 but may drag themselves into the 8. But i think they have some much better footy in them and they'll start playing quality league sooner rather than later.

    I reckon they might put 30 odd on the Rabbits this weekend. They've taken an absolute pounding and I think it may just be the catalyst to turn it around.

    I don't know....Souths have some quality about them this season. I'm actually expecting them to beat the Warriors on sunday.
    I still think the Warriors will come good but it wont be this sunday in my humble one.

    You see the Cowboys and Cronulla making the top 4? Thats a big call. I don't think Cronulla have the quality to sustain the season. That being said they are in top form now and good on them!!
    The Cowboys are to one dimentional for mine. Stop Thurston and you go a long way to beating the Cowboys.

    I rate the Cowboys too, and I think the 'one-man team' jibes are less and less applicable.

    I'd like to see the Warriors win this weekend, but I'd have to agree with Northern Union; the Bunnies look really strong this year. Don't seem to have missed Sandow much so far. :p.

    Storm, Broncos, Dogs and Manly in my opinion.

    Cowboys showed last week that they are frontrunners. Not a top 4 side for mine. Certainly top 8 though.
    Souths also top 8, but just don't think they have what it takes to finish top 4.

    I saw the cowboys play the dragons in a pre-season game in perth, and they impressed me. They are by no means a one man team, JT wasn't playing that day and they played fantastic. Cronulla are my dark horse, as much as I dislike them (I've had some bad experiences with sharks fans in the past), I really think that this is their year. I expect the tigers to make a late season surge and sneak into the finals.

    All depend on injuries imo, they are a curse.
