NRL 2020 Premiership Favourites

Penrith Panthers

If Nathan Cleary can stay healthy and out of trouble, the Panthers are a huge chance to take out the 2020 title. This young team is fearless and lack of finals experience will be no issue whatsoever when it comes to the pointy end of the season. The Panthers are an extremely tough unit.

Sydney Roosters

Yet again, the Sydney Roosters are one of the team to beat for the 2021 NRL Premiership. Well coached and with incredible player depth, the Roosters have been able to release both Sonny Bill Williams and Kyle Flanagan, and still managed to assemble one of the NRL’s best playing squads on paper.

Melbourne Storm

Needless to say, Craig Bellamy will have the Storm as ready as ever. Sure, Cameron Smith has been released but with Harry Grant coming back from Wests Tigers and Brandon Smith jointly filling the gap, the Storm lose little. When finals roll around in 2021, the Storm will undoubtedly figure heavily.

South Sydney Rabbitohs

Any team coached by the master coach Wayne Bennett remains a threat in any NRL competition. The pack will be stiffened significantly with the addition of Jai Arrow while Benji Marshall and Josh Mansour will add starch and experience to young crop of experienced stars at Redfern.

Canberra Raiders

Ricky Stuart will be hoping for a full season out of his team’s best and most influential player, Englishman Josh Hodgson. If Hodgson stays fit and continues to create space for the likes of Nicoll-Klokstad, Wighton and George Williams and Josh Papallli continues his line-bending form for the Raiders, anything is possible.

Parramatta Eels

The Eels are a quality young outfit and well-coached by Brad Arthur. If the Eels can reproduce their brilliant form that they produced over the first 12 rounds of 2020, then Parramatta are a massive chance to have a superb run in 2021.

Gold Coast Titans

Already, the Titans have recruited the best of any team in the NRL and with news of Cameron Smith possibly wearing a Titans jersey in 2021 inspired by the role of Tom Brady in the NFL, the Titans will surprise many observers this season.

Manly Sea Eagles

Getting through the season unhurt will assist the Sea Eagles to perform better in 2021 after their horror run with injuries and suspensions in 2020. Visitors to Brookvale Oval also find it tough place to win. Any team boasting the Trbojevic brothers, Daly Cherry-Evans, Martin Taupau, Curtis Sironen and Dylan Walker is to be reckoned with.

Our predictions

The longer the 2020 season progressed, the better the South Sydney Rabbitohs played. Coach Wayne Bennett has recruited well to shape a blend of youth and experience, and with Jai Arrow leading a once soft forward pack, the Rabbits will finally have the muscle to match their slick backline play.
