2013 Predictions: Shore: Always strong and with most of the crew returning from last year's victorious season they will have a good shot at defending the title. And by being trained within an inch of their lives blood, sweat and tears are a given, win or lose. Newington: After putting up a good show and reaching the podium, hopefully this year the boys in black and white can sign up to Jenny Craig and watch the kilos shed as the boat speed increases. Riverview: Why can't view's results reflect their amazing water, depth of rowers and on-site boatshed? If they want a chance of the podium they'll need to work out this little riddle. Scots: Scots have greatly improved their rowing program recently and last year's second place placing is testament. Thought to have been their best shot at the Rennie hopefully the lads continue on improving. Grammar: From last place to podium Grammar has also seen a marked improvement. However it is rumored that only one member from last year's eight will be returning. Joeys: I have no idea what goes on in the Joey's boatshed let alone where it is located. Notoriously inconsistent anything could happen. Kings: Although having a disappointing year in the eight last season Kings has tremendous depth and a good season to come will rest entirely on whether the big names return to the boats for another crack.
