On Thursday the 2018 Super League season will commence with defending champions Leeds Rhinos travelling to Warrington Wolves in the opening televised game.
Super League XXIII will see the return of Hull Kingston Rovers to the top flight after Leigh Centurions bowed out having only been promoted a year earlier.
This could be the year of the Tiger, who went agonisingly close to their first title in the club’s history. Or could Wigan Warriors bounce back after a disappointing campaign and take the title back to DW Stadium?
Here’s who our writers think will win the League Leaders and Super League titles, and the player most likely to take out the prestigious Man of Steel. Our writers also consider who may get relegated following The Qualifiers.
Sean Hayes – Castleford Tigers League Leaders, St Helens champions, James Roby Man of Steel, Widnes Vikings likely to get relegated
Ben Reid – St Helens League Leaders, St Helens champions, Ben Barba Man of Steel, Widnes Vikings likely to be relegated
Jordan Weir – Warrington Wolves League Leaders, Leeds Rhinos champions, Danny Houghton Man of Steel, Widnes Vikings likely to be relegated
Jack Harbidge – Warrington Wolves League Leaders, Castleford Tigers champions, Huddersfield Giants likely to be relegated
Charlotte Fletcher – Castleford Tigers League Leader, St Helens champions, Scott Taylor Man of Steel, Wakefield Trinity likely to be relegated
James Messenger – Warrington Wolves League Leaders, St Helens champions, James Roby Man of Steel, Huddersfield Giants likely to be relegated
Josh McAllister – Castleford Tigers League Leaders, St Helens champions, Ben Barba Man of Steel, Widnes Vikings likely to be relegated
