Predict a match result, how a team goes, predict a conference, predict the whole bloody thing! Put it here and we'll tell you why your right or wrong.
When it's all over you can come back and bath in the glory and feast on the blood of the loser. Or they can rape your women and slaughter your livestock.
Avatar bets are encouraged but lets keep finances out of it.

Tahs look skinny in the backs. A couple of injuries and shit could get real.

Backs are always skinny. Not everyone has to be a fatty-boomba like all you prop types.

I'll have a crack at the Reds season:
@ Melb - Reds
Brumbies - Brumbies (Reds LBP)​
Bulls - Reds (TBP)​
@ Jaguars - Jaguars (Reds LBP)
@ Stormers - Stormers
Bye​
@ Brumbies - Brumbies (Reds LBP)
@ Waratahs - Reds (Waratahs LBP)
Chiefs - Chiefs (Reds LBP)​
Lions - Reds (Lions LBP)​
Bye​
@ Sunwolves - Reds (TBP)
@ Hurricanes - Hurricanes
Highlanders - Highlanders (Reds LBP)​
Waratahs - Reds (Waratahs LBP)​
June Test Window​
@ Blues - Blues (Reds LBP)
Rebels - Reds (Rebels LBP)​
Sunwolves - Reds (TBP)​
Wins - 8 (x4pts)​
Losses - 8 (x0pts)​
LBPs - 6 (x1pts)​
TBPs - 3 (x1pts)​
Total of 40 odd points.​
Judging on last year that should put them just outside finals. (42 points being the cut off from last year with one less game or 4 points.)

Maybe they have an upset against someone like the Brumbies or Hurricanes (Highlanders are ripe too) finals is possible. But they look like they have a front loaded season so if they get onto a roll say putting in a good effort against the Brumbies in Round 3, that could easily have a flow on effect to the Jaguars and Stormers in Round 4 & 5. I feel like the Home Ground advantage will be really important for the Reds I think there is a quite hope in Brisbane (as opposed to last season where there was a loud hope). Playing the likely disjointed Rebels round 2 should be a boon. I don't anticipate the Lions playing very well after losing their head coach.

I can see Crusaders and Hurricanes been a class above and then anyone from Lions to Chiefs could fall in any position.

Rugby Australia bailing out Rebels by seasons end.
Dismal being named Pitcairns honorary ambassador to Japan.
Pocock to miss the entire season sparking large scale forum meltdown.
Quade to play entire season at Souths, Souths best crowd number of the year to top the reds best number.
Folau to sign new 3 year contract for $5mill, won’t play 2nd year during which debate will rage whether he is or is not getting paid by Rugby Australia for the gap year which is spent training gay penguins to be straight.
Jarrad Hayne to sign for Fiji IPRC team to follow his dream of failing to follow through on his dreams.

Swap Brumbies and Waratahs, Highlanders and Blues and I think you've nailed it!

Congrats! First prediction to need revising :p
