It's good to be back, isn't it? Super League was an unbelievable competition to follow last season, with the new format creating one of the most remarkable league campaigns in quite some time. With the Leeds Rhinos going ahead and winning an unprecedented treble, the departure of some of their integral senior figures might just open up the division even further.
The likes of Wigan and St Helens will always be worth watching, but Castleford, Warrington and Huddersfield have strengthened as well, looking to spring a surprise at the top of the ladder. Down the bottom, Wakefield, Widnes, Salford and both clubs from Hull have all bought in reinforcements in bulk, and the Catalan Dragons look likely to remain one of the hardest away fixtures in the calendar.
With a higher profile after the international series win against New Zealand before Christmas and Kevin Sinfield's outstanding - and very well deserved - second place at the Sports Personality of the Year awards, this could be a massive year in the continuing growth of Super League, and we'll be here every step along the way, letting you know exactly where you should be putting your money that week, and why.
Hull FC had a funny time out last year, with their hot and cold form leading to both incredible victories and sloppy losses. A club that deserves more given their stature in the game and the passion and size of their loyal fan base,they'll have been disappointed to have seen star winger Tom Lineham tempted away by a big offer from Warrington, who'll be delighted with the signing.
Quick, athletic, strong and smart near the line, Lineham knows how to finish, even when there doesn't seem to be much on for him. With speed enough to go the full length uncontested and the spring in his legs to make those picture perfect leaps in to the corner, he's joined a Warrington side that love nothing more than putting points on the board.
Tony Smith has invested heavily in his backline, and should they click, this is a team that have the potential to go very far in 2016, especially if the players want to prove 2015 to have been little more than a blip. 10/1 is a good price for someone as skilled as Tom Lineham is, so it's best off to get in now before anybody else notices.
Last year, Zak Hardaker came out of nowhere to claim the competitions most prestigious individual honour. His mixture of talent and determination, when combined with the overall skill and flair of the Leeds Rhinos side he was a virtual ever-present in, was more than enough to banish old concerns about his behaviour and temperament away from the field.
Similarly, the young English second row forward that Wigan have found themselves in John Bateman could be one of the most important pieces in their quest to atone for two straight defeats in Grand Final matches. A natural leader, tireless worker and defensive lynchpin, Bateman looks poised for big things in both a Wigan and England shirt, and just like it was with Hardaker a year beforehand, the Man Of Steel will come at a point in Bateman's career where he'll be more than ready to take the step up to the next level.
Wire were a disappointment last season, if we're all being honest. They won the occasional headline fixture, but failed to turn up with anywhere near enough regularity to challenge for anything major in the league. Even in their Challenge Cup semi-final, they blew what was a favourable tie against Hull KR, costing them another date with the Rhinos at Wembley.
They're a side who aren't shy to invest, and with a coach like Tony Smith who's been there and done it before, it's always seemed like just a matter of time before they took a step up and became champions. Having already topped the league before, and with Challenge Cup wins to their name in recent years, it's only a Grand Final ring that alludes them now.
Their additions this season may well be enough to get them to the top of the ladder again - especially if our Lineham hunch checks out - but given how motivated certain other clubs will be to win the main prize, that could prove to be one win too many again.
There's this saying in Super League, that to win one, you have to lose one first. Coming in to 2016, Wigan have been to Old Trafford two years running, and have come away empty handed on both occasions.
Their head coach Shaun Wane isn't a man that allows for much margin of error, so to have seen his side fall so close to the finish line in consecutive seasons will have created a fire in his belly many will find it almost impossible to put out.
While they've lost a few key names like Matty Bowen and Joe Burgess especially, the resigning of Sam Tomkins is as good as any club could wish for, despite injury keeping him out of the squad for the start of the year. A young side with some potentially world class talents, Wigan will hope the likes of Bateman, Gildart and Williams combine with older heads like Sean O'Loughlin to put right the wrongs of the past two seasons.
