3 of your pokemon are weak to dragon, nothing resists it.
2 pokemon weak to rock, nothing resists it.
1 pokemon weak to flying, nothing resists it.
1 pokemon weak to Psychic, nothing resist it.

Movesets don't make sense.

No recovery or hazards or rapid spin

No evs.

Everything should be level 100.

This team isn't competitive man. If it floats your boat for in game, go ahead and use it, but it's not going to work online or in tournaments. Just telling you like it is. Also it needs a complete overhaul, this isn't one of those situations where I can just fix your movesets and give someone a thumbs up.

Try looking through Smogon's RMT section found here

It can be a bit intimidating at first, but eventually you'll get into the swing of things.

Also just search around Smogon for a while, get a feeling for what kind of tier you would like to play in and then study it. Competitive battlers on youtube should help as well, though some of them suck, all of them somewhat know what they are talking about.

It's Commander Tresdin to you.

Ok Oscar already mentioned your teams weaknesses but I'll give you some advice on your Pokemon individually Tongue

Samurott is an ok Pokemon overall but you can find a much better Water type for competitive use. First of all get rid of Hydro Cannon and Retaliate.....HC requires a recharge turn which more or less leaves you dead in the water...(no pun intended) and retaliate is very situational. Instead I would recommend using Megahorn (covers his grass weakness) and Night Slash (adds some coverage).

Now on to Druddigon....none of it's moves even active it's ability...also have you seen how bad it's special attack stat is.....so why DM and Surf?? So yea you definitely need to fix that. I would suggest something more along the lines of this:

Crunch (coverage)
Rock Slide/Iron Tail/Fire Fang (deals with Ice types)
Dragon Claw/Outrage
Hone Claws (increases accuracy of the 3 moves listed to cover Ice types and is his only boosting move)

Crunch and the second move of your choice will all gain 30% more power because Sheer Force will activate with them...giving you the power of a life orb without the residual damage.

Audino is NOT an attacker...it is a defensive Pokemon and that's all there is to it...

Heal Bell
Thunder Wave/Toxic

Really the only decent set I can think of for it at the moment.

For Dragonite you can easily keep BOTH DD and Outrage. To cover Ice and Steel types I would also recommend teaching is Fire Punch...then the last move is really just whatever you prefer.

On your Altaria why do you have DD when all of your attacks are special???

DD set:
Dragon Dance
Steel Wing (deals with Ice types)
Dragon Claw

Special Set:
Dragon Pulse
Flamethrower/Fire Blast
Ice Beam
Hidden Power Flying?? (couldn't think of anything better on here)

Mixed Set:
Draco Meteor
Dragon Claw
Fire Blast/ Flamethrower

Stall Set:
Cotton Guard
Flamethrower/Dragon Pulse

Those are the best replacement sets I can think of for Altaria.

Lastly for Infernape replace Focus Blast for Close Combat..I mean seriously...have you saw FB's accuracy?? Get rid of Blast Burn (recharge turn is a killer) and Strength (ok power but no SE damage) as well. I would probably replace them with Flamethrower/Fire Blast and U-Turn (deals with enemy Psychic types)

Well there ya go Tongue didn't really try super hard on this but I gave my opinions for the Pokemon listed not your overall team....overall they MIGHT get a 2/10...MIGHT.... simply because I don't think they function very well together at all....just saying.

If you want to know in more detail why I selected the moves I did for each Pokemon then just ask and I will tell you Tongue
