    The top four seem assured of a semi spot but there are 8 teams vying for the final four.

    Who do you choose:

    1. Melbourne (Minor Premiers)
    2. Dogs
    3. Dragons
    4. Dogs

    Not sure about

    Sea Eagles
    Cowboys
    Knights
    Raiders
    Panthers
    Eels
    Sharks

    Which out of those teams will miss out and what order will they come up? (May have to use the finals calculator on MSE)

    I reckon Melbourne will take out the MP, they really only need to win half of their remaining games to snare it. The Dogs and Dragons will round out the top 3.

    The Broncos will finish either in 4th or 5th with the Sea Eagles, Knights, Cowboys and Panthers to fill the rest of the top 8 in roughly that order.

    Manly are top of the next list being 2 points ahead of 9th, having a bye and the best for and against of the lot.

    I dont see the cowboys making it, 8th could goto anyone of those really

    Eels and Bulldogs games are the keys for mine. We win one of those, and we can get 5th. Lose both and it could be 7th. One win out of these two is absolutely vital.

    We are assuming that we will beat Penrith here, beat Parra away (no easy task) and I suppose lose the last game against Melbourne, even though they will have the minor premiership wrapped up and may even rest players prior to the semis.

    Finishing 8th is looking like a trip to Melbourne, which is what we have to do in Round 26 anyway. No team has won in Melbourne for ions and no 8th team has won since 8 team semis have existed.

    Depending where the Broncos finish, any team finishing 5th, 6th or 7th will have to travel to Suncorp too, which is no easy ask. Playing the Dogs at Telstra or the Dragons at Kogarah or WGong is not half as intimidating!!

    Dogs at Telstra would be ideal for mine. We've beaten them there the last two times.
