Play-Off permutations

#SuperLeague

Catalans Dragons, St Helens, Warrington Wolves & Wigan Warriors are all in the 2021 Betfred Super League Play-Offs. But who joins them? Superleague.co.uk has the answers you need as Hull KR, Leeds Rhinos & Castleford Tigers battle for the two remaining Play-Off spots.

Hull KR (5th - 52.63%)

Hull KR know victory at Emerald Headingley on Friday would secure fifth spot in the 2021 Betfred Super League table and a trip to Wigan Warriors in the first round of the Play-Offs. A draw would also be enough for Tony Smith's outfit. However, defeat would leave them needing a Warrington Wolves win over Castleford Tigers on Thursday night.

Leeds Rhinos (6th - 52.17%)

Leeds Rhinos face a similar equation to Robins. They must win on Friday, otherwise they are relying on Wolves to overcome Tigers. In the event of a Tigers win, a draw would also put Rhinos out of contention.

Castleford Tigers (7th - 50%)

It is simple for Daryl Powell & his team. They must beat Wolves at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle on Thursday to guarantee a play-off spot. Lose and their season is over. In the unlikely event of a draw, Tigers will find themselves level on 50% with the loser of the Rhinos & Robins game, meaning the final play-off spot would be decided by points scored percentage, but Tigers have a lot of ground to make up and are reliant on either Rhinos or Robins losing heavily.
