The Kangaroos are in an interesting position coming into 2016. Their prospects depend largely on the ability of their older core to maintain their quality performances, and the ability of their younger players to improve their performances further.
They could be a premiership contender, but need their veterans like Brent Harvey and Drew Petrie to continue performing at a high level, and their younger players like Ben Brown, Shaun Atley, Taylor Garner and Luke McDonald to take big strides forward.
On the other hand there is the risk of a drop off if the veterans begin to slide and young players aren’t able to step up and pick up their slack. Still, they’ve performed well over the last two years, and should do so again barring a serious downturn.
Predicted Finish: 4th – 6th
