Stat Attack: Super 8s Round 4

The top 4 of the super 8’s were confirmed after Warrington’s win against Huddersfield. Is that how the table will finish?

If we reset the table for the super 8’s, we would see a similar top 4. With Wigan being top, followed by Warrington, Castleford and Wakefield.

The qualifiers is certainly proving to be interesting this season. Salford remain top of the qualifiers, followed by Leeds and Hull KR. Currently sitting in 4th is Toronto and 5th is London. Could this be the Million Pound Game? Or will Widnes be able to remain in Super League.
