The Warriors missed their chance to get ahead of the Cowboys. The superior points differential of the NZ Warriors sees them nicely poised to attack the NRL Ladder in the coming weeks. The Cowboys simply have to keep winning and winning by good margins; their points difference looks woeful and could be their undoing if they drop a few games.
The Broncos remain on 22 points and with their injury crisis beyond severe the Brisbane club may remain on 22 points or 24 points on the NRL Table at the seasons end. They face the Storm, Bulldogs and Eels in coming weeks.
The Bulldogs are a little bit of an unknown now, they sit on 22 points and have been struggling for form – but do get some stars back soon. Their season could go either way. The Tigers, Bunnies and Titans all sitting on 20 points are within striking distance – 2 of these 3 will make up the final NRL Top 8 Table positions in my mind. The teams on lower than 20 points: Roosters, Raiders, Dragons and Knights simply can’t get their unless miracles occur.
