Warrington defeat secures top eight spot for Salford and Leeds

Warrington’s defeat at Castleford on Sunday means that Salford and Leeds are now guaranteed to finish in the top eight.

Castleford powered to their 15th win in 18 league outings this season, with prolific winger Greg Eden scoring five tries to continue his quite incredible run of try-scoring form – he now has 30 for the season.

The Wolves rallied in the second half to keep the scoreline relatively low, eventually going down 36-16.

There are five games left until the league splits, with the bottom four dropping down into The Qualifiers to face the Championship’s top four teams.

Catalans, Warrington, Leigh and Widnes currently occupy the bottom four berths.

The Dragons are ninth with 13 points, 11 points behind Salford and Leeds with just 10 points to win. Castleford had already secured their top eight spot.

Hull need just one point from their final five games, while Wakefield need just one win.

Huddersfield’s recent revival has breathed life into the chase for the top eight, which it seemed Warrington had recovered to take.

But their disastrous recent run, which has seen four heavy defeats in succession, leaves last season’s Grand Finalists languishing in tenth place, two points behind the Giants who have a game in hand to play against St Helens.

After Round 23, the top eight Super League clubs will play each other once, carrying over their existing points, to determine the four teams to take part in the play-off semi-finals.
