2018/19 TCW Season Predictions

Who knows where this, or indeed any season is going to take us?  Most of us go into each one with renewed hope and enthusiasm but we have no idea where our team is going to end up or when the season will come to an end for us.

There will be highs and lows along the way, some of us may experience more of one than the other but we’re in it for the silverware and if you take away a trophy at the end of it all then it makes the sweat, nail biting, the near heart attacks and the despair worth it.

So here are our humble predictions for the coming season, we’ll revisit them when we get to the other end to see if any of us can claim to be a budding ‘Mystic Meg’ or if anyone got it so wrong that they deserve to be soundly ridiculed!

(Note: These were locked in before Cardiff’s CHL campaign began so a couple of us are already vying for a sneaky resubmission!)
