Here are mine:

1. Saints. New coach shouldn't be a handicap to what will still be a good side
2. Wigan. Look like being a tough side with some gifted players too.
3, Hull FC. Will find the consistency that's proved elusive.
4. Wire. Much depends on their halves going well.
5. Leeds. Might scrape the play offs though really just mid table filler
6. Cas. A further step down from their glorious 2017.
7. Salford. Will continue to post some impressive results under Watson.
8. Catalans. Will continue to toss it off. M. Gausch should dig out his cleaver asap.
9. Wakey. Will be flaky and shaky.
10. TWP. Will scare the bejazus out of their backers but will survive. Just.
11. Hudds. Gearing for a better 2021 as their youngsters gain experience.
12. Hull KR. Not sure Tony Smith is the right fella for this end of the table.

GF: Saints
CC: Wigan
Promoted: Leigh

1-8 is wide open, as is 9 - 12, we haven't seen a pass in a SL game yet, so too early to say beyond that.

a lot will depend on what is happening behind closed doors around structure and TV deals.

Looks to be a pretty good assessment.
I would have Wire ahead of FC and probably Huddersfield ahead of TWP, who I think will find super league a much tougher proposition than they perhaps think.
Yes, they've signed SBW but, I dont think he will be enough for the step up to SL
Positions 5-9 though could be in any order.
Leeds do look to have improved their squad and hopefully, Trinity wont see a repeat of last seasons endless injury list.

KR do look a little vulnerable though.

Success, at least in terms of league position, is all about putting a run together and should one of the "mid table" sides put a run together, just about anyone can make the play offs, just as Salford managed (spectacularly) last season.

If Catalan dont make a decent start, they too could find themselves at the wrong end of the table.

Plenty to look forward to and lets hope it's a great season.

1. Wigan Hastings is one of those players who can make everyone around him better.
2. St Helens New coach won't be as good as Holbrook.
3. Catalans Maloney. Like Hastings, he will make everyone else better. And he'll coach them too, so McBanana's incompetence
will be covered.
4. Cas Much depends on the Trueman/Richardson partnership.
5. Hull FC Lots of size, but they still have Radford in charge and too many players with attitude problems.
6. Warrington Not good enough in the forwards.
7. Leeds As with Warrington, forwards not good enough.
8. Huddersfield Sezer will improve them, but not enough improvement elsewhere.
9. Salford Sadly, the have been pillaged.
10. Wakefield Can't see too much improvement on last year.
11. Hull KR Signed lots of players, but they are all pretty poor.
12. Toronto Nowhere near enough depth to compete every week. Plus a points deduction.

Challenge Cup - Cas
Grand Final Winners - Wigan
Man of Steel - James Maloney.

Top 2 and bottom 2 I feel reasonably confident in predicting (but still wouldn't be surprised if I was wrong) but the rest less so. Hull and Cats in particular are hard to predict.
