There is some wariness around the Cowboys for the new NRL season.

The defending champions are expected to challenge for the title again, having kept a large majority of their squad from last year.

Respected Fox Sports commentator Greg Alexander says they will there or thereabouts, but it's hard to go back-to-back.

Alexander said it'll be tough for them because, all of a sudden, when a team is defending champions everyone wants to knock them off.

"They're in for a tough one. South Sydney found that out last year. All of a sudden when you're the champs everyone wants to knock you off. It's a long year and so much can happen through a year."

Alexander believes the Broncos are the favourites to win this year.

The season starts on Thursday, with teams due to name their 17s today.
