NRL teams are back into full swing with pre-season training for the 2021 season. Some teams are getting back to their best and they’re faster and stronger for the new season, while other teams will inevitably slide backwards. The Wooden Spoon (awarded each year to the team with the worst NRL regular season record) is the mythological trophy that no club nor its supporters ever wish to win.

However, the great news for punters is there’s plenty of money to be made by getting the best odds on favourites to take out the Wooden Spoon before NRL season 2021 begins.

Get the best Wooden Spoon odds now on the Titans, Bulldogs, Warriors, Dragons, and Wests Tigers for season 2021 before the Wooden Spoon odds blow out once the NRL begins in earnest.

NRL 2021 Wooden Spoon Favourites

St George-Illawarra Dragons

Bookmakers seem to have installed the Dragons as equal Wooden Spoon favourites based on last year’s poor form and that may be a mistake. Anthony “Hook” Griffin as new coach is a known man-manager and may be able to get more out of his players than previous coach Paul McGregor was able to manage.

Canterbury Bulldogs

Canterbury seem set to improve little in 2021. New recruits, Josh Addo-Carr, Nick Cotric, Kyle Flanagan and Corey Allan will certainly spark the Bulldogs in attack but massive question marks remain over lack of quality in their ageing forward pack.

Brisbane Broncos

It will take awhile for new Broncos coach Kevin Walters for assemble a playing list that will lift the Broncos off the bottom of the ladder. Getting back McCullough from the Knights will guide the Broncos around the park in 2021, but the rest of the spine as unknown and unsettled. The Broncos will struggle in 2021.

Wests Tigers

Wests Tigers underperformed in 2020 and may be far too good to win the Wooden Spoon in 2021. Yes, West Tigers have lost Harry Grant back to the Storm and Benji Marshall to the Rabbitohs but looking intensively through their list, there should be too much quality for West Tigers to finish last in 2020.

Statistics

  • Only 2 sides have won the NRL Premiership within 2 years of winning the Wooden Spoon, – the Panthers in 2003 and the Sharks in 2016. No team has ever won the NRL Premiership the year after a Wooden Spoon win.

Most Wooden Spoons Won

  • 17 – Western Suburbs Magpies (now defunct), lastly in 1999.
  • 14 – Parramatta Eels – most Wooden Spoon finishes among current clubs.

Least Wooden Spoons Won

  • The Wests Tigers, Manly Sea Eagles and St George Illawarra Dragons have never won the Wooden Spoon, while the Canberra Raiders finished last only once in their maiden year in the NRL competition in 1982.

Most ‘successful’ Wooden Spoon turnaround team

  • The 2009 Sydney Roosters finished last and bounced back to reach the 2010 NRL Grand Final but were denied the ultimate turnaround after being defeated by the St George Illawarra Dragons in the ‘big dance’.
