Australia Tigers great Hart in hospital after crash
My NRL ladder prediction: Part 2 (13-11)
Here are my predictions for which teams will finished 13th, 12th and 11th on the NRL ladder this season. 13. Brisbane Broncos (last year 16th) If 2020 was represented through an NRL team, it would certainly be the Brisbane Broncos. The Broncos had their worst year in club history as they picked up their first ever wooden spoon. Things looked promising for the Broncos before the league was postponed due to COVID-19 as they had two convincing wins on the board, coming against the Cowboys and the Rabbitohs. After the COVID-19 shutdown I was proved wrong when I thought they would be a team to beat.
