Terrible spine but there is enough around it to cause some problems if other teams are off their game.

Seriously, that's as ordinary a team as you'll ever see in the NRL. The good veterans are past their best and some of the younger players are out of their depth without support - especially the 6, 7 and 9.

That's pretty much how they were looked at when they were stringing wins together too. They won't make the 8 but they'll finish higher than their team on paper would suggest.

They've strung wins together at the back end of the last two seasons. Will be interesting to see if they can do it when it actually matters, at the start of the season.

Yeah their season will pretty much be set by that pre-origin period. If they somehow have a good start they'll be a pest. If they have the same bad start it'll be a repeat.

Yes, it will be interesting to see how they go after finishing 12th last season. They certainly lulled a few teams into a false sense of security after a 3-11 start to the season in 2019.

Bulldogs are like that rash you've been carrying your whole life.

It doesn't bother you, it's painless and non life threatening, but it won't go away.

Bottom 4 for me with GC, STG, NEW.

I don't mind Canterbury. They have a dig and generally don't get blown off the park.

Not enough weapons to trouble the top teams though.

Mid table, missing the 8.
