Looks fairly likely to me. Reckon Wakey could be on 22pts as well. They should beat Bradford and Salford.

Think, despite losing, Bradford have been playing better than Wakey so should be a good game.

However:

Cas - 1 win
Crus - 1 win
Wake - 0/1/2 wins
Bradford - 0/1 win.

Mick, i don't know why you left last week's Cas v Leeds fixture there. I've corrected it for you.

Cas simply have to beat Quins this weekend. If they do, they will almost certainly get the 8th place on points difference as theirs is much better than either Cru's or Wakey's. If they don't, Crusaders will get the spot. I can't see Wakey boosting their points difference enough, even if they win both their last games, each of which they could well win (Bradford and Salford are both there for the taking!).

Skints away, with them needing a big win for second, could get close....
Can't see Cru beating HKR by a lot, if winning at all, though, tbh.
If Quims turn up and play tomorrow, and pinch it, well, then the fat is well and truly in the fire if Wakey win at Bradford.

but you say point difference maybe two much to catch difference between wakie and cas atm is 62 i can see saints winning by 40 points easily cas confidence is on the dip so that would put there difference to lets say 22 but they will be quins by 16 i think which would put it to 38. i think wakefield will beat bradford and salford in total in both games by more than 40 (20 each game) and i think wakey are some how by a some mircle going to make it but least it makes it exciting aye. although it would be good to see the welsh side make it to the playoffs just for the game i dont see them beating a very solid hull kr side.

if cas win today i would say we will make play offs unless hull kr lose to wigan then they have nothing to play for in the last game against cru as they wont be able to take over hudds, so will they rest a few top players for the play offs? ohmy.gif i really hope they dont

So it's down to 2 now, us or Crusdaers and I'm sure 95% of people on here are wanting the new boys to do it.

However, Saints are very, very beatable right now - they are massively struggling in the half backs and think they were lucky to beat a poor Crusaders team on Saturday.

Don't underestimate the possibility of a Cas win next weekend
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

You never know as Crusaders are at home they may get a decision as opposed to the
the usual heartlands homer calls from the officials.
