Season kick off is around the corner..

Welcome to another season of NRL football. In what promises to be one of the most exciting years of football in recent memory we have seen some teams recruti heavily and some stick with tried and tested combinations. 
We see the return of Sonny Bill and everyone will wonder how he will fair. In my opinion I see him taking a month to get the necessary weight  and asscoited timing and confidence before he makes the impact we have seen over recent years.
We have seen a couple of major coaching changes and the likes of Elliot (Warriors) and Potter (Tigers) will get a quick initiiation into the rigours of NRL life again. We also have Ricky Stuart, who is extrememly successful in effecting change taking over the much maligned Parramatta Eels. Getting directional cohesion out of Sandow and Hayne will be a determining factor in how his early season results go.
There is plenty of pressure on Steve PRice (Dragons) and Iit is unfortuante he has to focus on his task with the club swooning around other coaches for the 2014 season. 
All in all I am looking forward to the 2013 season that culminates in the Rugby LEague WOrld Cup which is held int he United Kingdon in Novemeber with Australia hot favourites to regain the prize from the Kiwis after the 2008 boil over.
