    I got a feeling that the Broncos are going to lift this week as they are playing us in their place

    I've got the Dragons. They've got one of the best halves pairings in the NRL and a bloody good forward pack. Plus they always start the year off well.

    Just don't see the Sharks winning with their backline full of Fullbacks and no one really taking charge in the halves.

    Yeah head says Dragoons but Sharks have a big habit of getting up for this clash and beating big brother so it will be close I think. Having said that the Sharks have some real problems in the playmaking area that need to be fixed up for them to be a strong player in the comp this year.

    Its a hard one. St merge went well last week at home. Sharks went well considering they were playing Cows in JTs 300th in NQ. I picked Sharks because they are at home and merge arent as good away from Jubilee

    It’s disgusting that they have bet365 on the posts. Shouldn’t be promoting gambling to kids like that

    Bet365 is a small family owned business. Equivalent to your local butcher. How would you like it if your local butcher couldn’t advertise
