Looking a strong team again. Shakey will be the one to beat, as ever, and it will be interesting to see how Irwin progresses. Haslam looks the strongest challenger and I think he'll nick it this time, but it will be another great season. Hope things come together for James Ellison too and he gets the results he deserves.
