I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but the new season is nearly upon us. Will the whinos win it from 5th again, will wire fulfill their potential, will Wigan live up to their own hype, will saints wake up from their slumber, will the French finally conquer all, will either ull club wake up for more than their derby game or will one of the others surprise us all? In Salfords case will someone rescue them?
League shield: Saints
Challenge Cup: Wigan
Grand final: Wire
Yes but if you were in the Egg Chasing Super League and win the league you win a crappy shield and a team finishing fourth can win the Grand Final and achieve more than the League Champions, and they call that a sport
Reach for the stars
And if you don't grab 'em,
At least you'll fall on top of the world
Think about it
For the uneducated, most bitters then, in super league winning the league is a great achievement but is not recognised as being champions. The top 8 enter the play offs with the aim of winning the grand final at the stadium of make believe in October. A team can win it from 8th and the last 2 years Leeds have won it from 5th! Are fans happy, no not really unless you are Leeds, but we all know the rules before we start and it is being reviewed at long last. Anyway full free to post predictions, rather than take it off at a tangent as somebody else was once accused.
