Greg Prichard's Power Rankings

Last week's position in brackets.

1. Melbourne (1). The Warriors made a game of it against them before the Storm piled on three late tries to make it appear easy. You're no hope unless you play for 80 minutes against this mob.

2. Brisbane (2). Have done a tremendous job so far. The State of Origin period will be difficult, but fortunately they have a bye immediately before Origin I and another straight after Origin III.

3. Cronulla (3). Six wins in a row now. Their winning run is reaching dizzying heights, and now teams will look forward to knocking them off. The Rabbitohs will be waiting on Monday.

4. St George Illawarra (5). Staged the most recent of the late escapes the competition is becoming known for this season with two tries at the death to beat the Roosters on Anzac Day.

5. Manly (7). Knocked over the Bulldogs in a high-quality game. Glenn Stewart is a marvel, the way he can come back from extended periods out of the game and slip straight back into top form.

6. Canterbury (4). Have produced high-class performances at their last two starts, only to have the misfortune to run into the Storm and the Sea Eagles. Should beat the Eels on Friday.

7. North Queensland (6). Just can't win in Sydney. They have won only six of their past 33 games in this city, which is a bit of a worry since a little game called the grand final is played here.

8. South Sydney (10). Wouldn't you love to own a greyhound that flew out of the boxes as quickly as the Rabbitohs did against the Cowboys? That little puppy would be straight onto the bunny.

9. Wests Tigers (11). Everything was hunky dory when they led the Eels 31-0, but then they racked the cue and conceded five tries in the last 13 minutes to only win by a point. Oh, momma.

10. Warriors (8). Competed for a long time against the Storm, but then dropped their bundle to concede three late tries and make the scoreboard look much worse than what it should have.

11. Newcastle (13). Were too good for the Panthers, but so is everybody at the moment. Big worries are the season-ending injury to Kurt Gidley and the ongoing problem for Danny Buderus.

12. Sydney Roosters (12). Losses like the one they suffered against the Dragons on Anzac Day come back to bite a team when they are desperately trying to reach the finals.

13. Canberra (9). Recent history shows they struggle without Terry Campese, and in their first game since he went down with a season-ending injury they were flogged at home by the Sharks.

14. Gold Coast (14). Not up to it, and will be doing well to avoid winning the wooden spoon. The Broncos showed them what it is all about. The Titans were never a match for their near neighbours.

15. Penrith (15). Have entered a very difficult period, and there doesn't look to be any respite this week, when they are at home to the Storm. Could cop a hiding if the Storm are in the mood.

16. Parramatta (16). Racked up five tries in 13 minutes against the Tigers. Only problem was it came in the last 13 minutes, when they were trailing 31-0. There are massive problems in Eels country.

  • Greg, how can those pathetic pussy cats be 9th in the Power Rankings? They beat Cronulla in golden Point with abysmal refereeing decisions. Penrith are a pathetic rabble and than they allowed the worst team this decade Parramatta score 30 points in 13 minutes! Tigers 14th for mine.
