As the new year is upon us it means that we are getting ever so close to kicking off the 2018 NRL season with much to be anticipated.
So if you aren’t already, here are 10 reasons to be excited about the 2018 NRL season. As always don’t forget to leave your opinions below.
Knights New Era
After finishing last on the ladder for the third year in a row in 2017 it’s safe to say big change was needed for the Newcastle Knights and it looks to have arrived through the signings of possibly the most hyped unknown entity in NRL history in Kalyn Ponga from the Cowboys, and former Grand Final winning halfback Mitchell Pearce from the Roosters, along with other established NRL players such as Aiden Guerra and Chris Heighnington.
This will make the Knights a must watch team in 2018 as they like new signing Ponga will be an unknown entity.
Although many believe that Newcastle won’t finish last 4 seasons in a row win 2018 they still may not perform that well in 2018 due to the number of new players they have meaning the players will need time to gel so expect at least a bad run of form by Newcastle in 2018 or, perhaps they will come out guns blazing and possibly push for a top 8 spot.
