Are Wests firming to go back to back? Any early predictions? Who will be top 4 and why?
The competition is starting a month earlier than last year but QLD Rugby still haven't got the draw on https://qld.rugby/
Wests should give it a fair crack again, assume they are strong in the early rounds. A number of their key players will be involved with the Rebels in a more permanent capacity this year, and some of their unsigned guns have picked up Reds gigs.
