Last week: 1st.
Continuing on their merry way - after a stuttering start the Red V clicked into gear and looked outstanding in a dominant win over Newcastle. A packed WIN Stadium helped too.
Last week: 2nd.
If not for the stellar performance of the Dragons, would be #1. Still plenty of hesitation among the NZ fanbase but this team looks the goods.
Last week: 5th
Finally found their attacking spark and dominated the Eels for most of the contest. After a solid opening three weeks, this side keeps improving.
Last week: 7th
Finally put together a near-complete performance and got rid of their first half demons. Great win over the Cowboys.
Last week: 12th
The Raiders played them back into form, but it still looked very good. A stern test coming this weekend against a resurgent Titans.
Last week: 4th
Now only two-from-two, there are plenty of questions over the Storm at the moment. A loss to the Tigers could have their premiership defence on the rocks early.
Last week: 3rd
Dramatic slide for a team that looked to be hitting their stride. Will need to reassess their structure after being thoroughly outplayed by the Warriors
Last week: 9th
Ground out another low-scoring win over the Storm without two of their best in the side. Need to find points though.
Last week: 10th
Hitting their straps after a come-from-behind win over Canterbury - a match they arguably should've lost. Burgess' omission for a fortnight isn't good news but Reynolds' return should buoy them.
Last week: 6th
An awful performance against the Titans. Struggling for consistency.
Last week: 8th
Going backwards fast after a flashy opening fortnight. Need a boisterous home crowd to wrestle back the momentum of their season.
Last week: 14th
Brilliant bounce back to smash big brother Broncos following a horrible showing the week before. Plenty of potential here.
Last week: 11th
Solid performance against Souths but was never going to be easy losing their fullback early - arguably should've won the game though.
Last week: 13th
Not good enough up against Penrith. The team is there on paper but something is lacking. The loss of Jordan McLean won't help matters either.
Last week: 15th
At least in the first three weeks this mob were competitive... this time they were just awful. Ricky's men are struggling and a loss to Canterbury on Thursday spells a doomed season already, you'd think.
Last week: 16th
Best performance they've put in all season - just a pity they waited til the last 15 minutes to implement it. Still a lot of improvement needed from the blue and gold.
