The Broncos have lost superstars like Lockyer, Folau and Karmicheal Hunt in recent years, but with readymade replacements like Hoffman taking charge coach Griffin won't be losing any sleep about blocking off the Broncos exit door.
With his recent standout performances for the rejuvenated Sea Eagles, Stewart has galloped his way back into contention for the Blues fullback spot. Will Sticky Ricky give snake the first bite at the Maroons in State of Origin?
After feasting on most of the NRL teams in the first eight rounds, the Sharkies couldn't stomach the fluffy bunnies and ended up coughing up fur balls. Can Carney take his cough medicine and make a recovery in time to wrestle with super Cooper?
If the Storm keep destroying teams week in, week out, it could be a very one-sided 2012 premiership. Maybe coach Bellyache should switch the players’ positions to keep things interesting... Smith to fullback, Slater in the front row and Cooper becomes the mascot... sound fair?
Any more losses like last weekend and the Panthers will be downgraded to the Pussycats, and unless GM Gus can work out how to clone Luke Lewis the mountain men may be in for mauling at the hands of the Dragons.
His ANZAC Day heroics saved the day for the Dragons but big performances have been few and far between this season. Creagh has done the job for NSW in the past but is it time the Blues find a new forward to throw at the Maroons?
The Warriors half is one of the best organisers in the game, which was shown when he signed with the Roosters two years before he will even get to look inside the tricolours dressing room. Was it the signing of Maloney that forced Anasta out the door?
At season’s end captain Braith is packing up his Bondi pad, plucking his feathers and driving down the M5 to Campbelltown to set up his new home with the Tigers. Does Sheens really plan on using him in the halves or will he be another half-turned-battering ram next season?
It looks time for a re-think of the Knights’ master plan with the steel city struggling to build a winning formula. It is going to take more than a Bennett miracle to pull a premiership out of the Knights’ helmets this season.
A solid win against the dwindling Dragons has catapulted the cumbersome Cowboys into the top four. If the Cowboys keep giving the ball to the Segeyaro rocket the fans will keep watching... what a superstar!
He was the big dog in Bankstown but never really lived up to his hype. Will this sea change help wake the monster from his slumber and set him on a path to becoming the King of the Titans, or will the sandy soils sink his shoes?
He was three times the size of Ben Barba and only scored half as many tries, but the big hair and big body made him a standout for the fans. Was Giant Jamal better as a Belmore Bulldog than a tiny Titan?
Although they competed with Manly for 40 minutes, the Raiders’ season has been nothing short of underwhelming. Will this battle with the blue and gold army become the match of the round, or will it be wooden spoons all round?
30 points in 13 minutes was not something you would expect from this B-grade side, and by the looks of things it is not something they are going to reproduce anytime soon. At least next weekend they will get the two points from the bye.
