And if 13th isn’t right, it’s not too far wrong. I mean we’re talking one or two spots up max. But a lot of other good spines don’t have the forward pack in front of them that the Broncs do, that’s where the difference will hopefully come.Cowboys have Holmes and Morgan, proven guns, Granville who is pretty good, and they have Drinkwater who is a highly rated youungster who already has some runs on the board. They're easily in front of us.
Knights have Ponga, an absolute star, alongside Pearce who's perhaps not elite, but his club form is usually excellent, as well as Watson who is very handy too, so again, easily in front of us.
Dragons have Hunt and Norman who have played Origin, and McInnes who is one of the top 5 Dummy Halves in the game. They're pretty comfortably in front of us too.
Penrith are the only one I could probably argue is only just above us, because Cleary is the only real gun they have, but Edwards is a pretty strong Fullback too when in form so they have that in their favour.
Every side above us has at least one gun spine player, and some have several. We possibly have Milford, but it's been a while since he's played like a gun. All the others are mostly unproven at this point, so I think 13th is about right.
