    Default Ladder Predictions - 2018/19

    1 day til tip off!

    Taking into account current rosters and pre-season form, but also potential import changes/additions, who is likely to get injured and any other random x factors, what's your order?

    Ill go:

    1.Melbourne
    2.Sydney
    3.Perth
    4.NZ

    5.Adelaide
    6.Cairns
    7.Illawarra
    8.Brisbane

    Crystal Ball:

    Melbourne should be solid with McCarron potentially coming off the bench to start. A lot depends on Kennedys level of commitment, and Boones injury potential.

    Sydney could drop if they see injury/foul trouble to the big man.

    Perth will make an import change at some point. Depending how long that takes, is dependant on whether they can grab a top 2 spot. Solid 3rd import can topple both Melb and Sydney.

    Adelaide and NZ fighting for that finals spot. Both playing an entertaining style of game.

    Cairns not far behind both, depth may be a concern if their 3 imports aren't scoring every game.

    Illawarra - outside scoring may be an issue. But will compete better than the roster may say.

    Brisbane depending on what level of enthusiasm Gee brings. I'm predicting it may not be as high as they'd have liked, and it will have to be high with no import pg. Lots of pressure on Cadee.

    Question

    Can anyone tell me why the Wildcats finished first ahead of United this season? The head-to-head tiebreaker among the Top 3 teams is:

    Unit 3-1

    Wildcats 2-2

    Kings 1-3

    Head to head ladder tiebreaker has been overall points percentage for the whole season. Pretty sure it was for last season also, though could be wrong.
