Pretty favourable draw to start, isn’t it. Probably need those four wins if they are going to make something of the season.

NRL 2019 season preview: New Zealand Warriors

Correct – that’s been fixed.

NRL 2019 season preview: New Zealand Warriors

Let’s be honest, the Warriors snuck into the finals last year. Play like that again and they won’t be there.

Where have you heard that about Keighran.

NRL 2019 season preview: New Zealand Warriors

Good sum up BA.

Ah Mau is a huge signing for the Warriors TB – I’m really disappointed he wont’ be in the Red V.

The Johnson loss is enormous.

Greg – he isn’t a rep player, to be fair, but he does his job. He has made the last three clubs he has been at better.

NRL 2019 season preview: New Zealand Warriors

Yeah, I quite like Green.

Probably was referring to the back 5, rather than the whole back 7 Paul.

Writing off is the wrong expression JB, but they haven’t made my top eight if that’s what you’re wondering.

NRL 2019 season preview: Manly Sea Eagles

Yeah, actually, you’re right – Friz missed out TB.

The Roar's top 50 NRL players: 50-41

Maybe so, but it’s not exactly day and night is it? There really isn’t a lot to like about that situation BA, but I reckon, just maybe, they go with a youngster like Garrick.

You’re probably right – Koroisau is one of my favourite players to watch.

Luck with injuries might have plenty to do with the end results this season if a strong start is made.

NRL 2019 season preview: Manly Sea Eagles

You’re right Baz – this comp is going to be very close. Hard to put Manly down this far, but there are still plenty of questions.

I think you’ll be surprised by some of the ladder positions I’ve picked out over the next few weeks.

NRL 2019 season preview: Manly Sea Eagles

Indeed, they are.

The Roar's top 50 NRL players: 50-41

Hey BA – from memory, they were around the 25-30 mark, but yeah, have been voted down a little bit…

Gagai is excellent in Origin. It’s a mystery to me why he can’t turn that into consistently good club form.

The Roar's top 50 NRL players: 50-41

Right – my bad.

NRL 2019 season preview: Canberra Raiders

Bet? I didn’t say anything about a bet? But sure, you’re on… I don’t own much green, but Canberra will miss the eight so I shouldn’t have to worry.

NRL 2019 season preview: Canberra Raiders

Think it’s a huge risk to have Jack W playing the 6 – that’s only come out in the last few days.

NRL 2019 season preview: Canberra Raiders

Yeah, I didn’t expect many to agree on the 15th call.

I’d much prefer to see Cotric elsewhere in the backline, but you’re right, there just isn’t a spot there. Although, the oversight – Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad – could fill a hole if you left someone out.

My ladder has changed plenty since I started writing this series in December TB…

G’day mate – unfortunately, the tipping plug-in hasn’t carried across to our newly rebuilt site and so, at the moment, it looks like it’ll be missing moving forward.

We will still have expert tips each week though where you can tip as part of The Crowd and get involved with the banter, which I’m sure will be great fun as always.

Super Rugby Round 1 teams: Tahs unveil new-look centre pairing, Ma'a Nonu set for Blues return

Yeah, that’s definitely our bad – we have since corrected for this to be a touring squad to Japan, rather than their actual team line-up.

Super Rugby Round 1 teams: Tahs unveil new-look centre pairing, Ma'a Nonu set for Blues return

Yeah absolutely. By all reports, Brown has a really good running game and is strong defensively. I’ve never seen him play, it has to be said, but he is going to get first crack.

NRL 2019 season preview: Parramatta Eels

Fair shout Matt. Will make sure it’s in the rest of the previews and have updated today’s version.

NRL 2019 season preview: Parramatta Eels

Can’t see either Canterbury or the Titans being right at the bottom, without giving too much away about the order to come.
