    This is the thread to post in about Rugby League. Weekly teams, results, discussions etc.

    Sprucey's Unbiased Predictions:

    Minor Premiers: Manly
    Premiers: Storm
    Runners Up: Broncos
    Wooden Spoon: Raiders
    Most Improved Team: Sharks
    Team to go backwards most: Raiders
    Dally M: Lockyer
    Souths to make 8?: Nope. I predict 10th
    Titans to make 8? Nope. They could, but injury's will expose their lack of depth. I predict them to just miss out.
    State of Origin Result: QLD, 2-1
    Will Johns last the season: Yes (an injury or 2 along the way but nothing major), but it will be his last. Newcastle won't make 8.
    First coach to be sacked: Nathan Brown
    Leading Try Scorer: Greg Inglis or Nathan Merrit

    Let's look back on this at season's end and see how close we were.

    I don't know enough about NRL teams in general to make predictions on all of those, but I must say, I like Spiff's premiership prediction. The only way both Spiff and Spruce could be right (Dragons and Nathan Brown) is if NB gets so excited after the premiership win he does something stupid like rooting someone's wife, and is given the arse.

    There's just not enough recreational drug use in the NRL to make the sport interesting to a Victorian.

    Haha. I love how the AFL won't drop players for things that NRL guys get sacked for, and yet a bloke makes a $10 bet on a game his team isn't even in and just about gets a new arsehole torn in him.

    twas a very good game..

    Saints vs Titans was good, though mistake ridden.

    Newcastle v Dogs would've been a good game. Johns got clocked by Sonny Bill Williams. Nasty...

    I wanted to watch that game, but I couldn't get any signal because of the heavy cloud. FUcking useless satellite. Fortunately, The Magnificent Seven was on, so the afternoon wasn't completely wasted.
