6 teams for 4 play-off spots. Could Wire miss out?

Looking at 2 to 7 in the table and their fixtures, any two teams could lose out - including Warrington.

With 4 games left, Wire have 3 away: us, Salford and Leeds. All loseable, more so with the Wembley factor.

Cats are probably the weakest/least consistent team, but they have 3 winable games in London and Hull KR in France, and Huddersfield away (along with us at the DW.)

Hull v Salford this week will be a key match, with the Airlie Birds also to play Cas away and Saints at the KCOM.

Our 3 games at home are Wire, Cats and Cas. We also travel to Wakey. 4 from 4 would see us in the top 3, likely 2nd I'd say, on 36 points.

Top 5 for me at least would/will be..

saints,
Wigan or Hull
wire
Salford

I do think wire will fade after the Wembley effect they aint in the best of form at present, I just think Salford will grab the last place, one thing is for certain Wigan can't afford to lose any game from now on.

Might actually lead to an exciting climax to the season, the games seem to have had a bit more edge to them of late and the have benefited from it massively. I think aggression is a large part of the draw to our sport and its being completing missing from the first part of the season

No.

Right then, Ian:
I'll bet you 2 pints in the Cardigan Arms before the next Rhinos away match that Warrington don't finish in top 5.
