    Got this idea from the Bulldogs forum, thought it might be a good idea for a new sort of centralized thread for any bold predictions, could be a bit of fun to look back on at the end of the season or beyond to see who was on the money or who was horribly wrong.

    I'll start off with some predictions

    - Jacob to play 20+ matches this year & give Dan a run for his money

    - Tuala to announce himself this season as a strike weapon in attack

    Cool idea, I'll have a go:

    Saulo to play 12+ games in first grade and start to nail down a spot

    Simi Sasagi will make his first grade debut as a 14 when Watson is required elsewhere at some point

    Our biggest loss will be by less than 12 points

    I saw To'a do a couple of breathtaking runs in under 20s last year.
    He has played very little football and has some serious issues to sort out, but as soon as he is ready, he will be our best attacking weapon.

    People will be surprised with how dominant our middle forwards are.

    -We’ll be in the Top 8 from Round 1 to Round 25
    -Jacob Saifiti will have a huge year and will be on even pegging with his brother by seasons end
    -Hoy will impress with the limited First Grade he gets
    -Watson will play Origin

    I like the Watson Origin call, I just think it is the role that Murray played last year and he is elite. Playing on an edge might change that? Watson wouldn't be out of place though.

    His best work in under 20s was as a fullback, but I can only see him being a winger in the near future.

    Sione will become our best edge forward.
    Barnett will play lock most of the year.

    I do not expect us to make the top eight until at least 2021, if we don’t make the top eight again that year, O’Brien will be sacked as he’s got two years for us to make it.

    Not a bad way to come in to first grade, but he seems to have a bit of ball play about him as well

    Ponga the leading tryscorer again. He had 11 last year, he will double that. He'll score 11 just backing up down the middle and not really having to beat anyone. Watson will be well in double figures as well.

    Neither Tuala or Shiba will be starting centres at some point of the season

    If Chris Randall gets a run he'll kill it, or kill himself trying.

    Dan and Jake to become angry and scary good.

    Sione to come back from injury and prove his value to the Team.

    Brailey to be the buy of the season by leading us deep into the finals.

    NRL grand final winner prize to be paid out in toilet paper.

    I was just reading that people are getting "buyers remorse" and taking toilet paper back to Woolworths for a refund, and Woolworths is telling them no.
    As someone said, they'll be living on toilet paper on toast for months.

    how much toilet paper could some of these idiots possibly have bought to need to refund it? Yeah there are signs in my local woolies saying they aren’t refunding lots of items.
