Put this on another forum with regards to who Crusaders (or Cas) could face

Hull/Leeds Draw, Hudds win

4 Leeds 34

5 Hudds 33

6 Hull 33

Hull/Leeds Draw, Hudds lose/draw

4 Leeds 34

5 Hull 33

6 Hudds 31/2

Hull win, Hudds win

4 Hull 34

5 Hudds 33

6 Leeds 33

Leeds win, Hudds win

4 Leeds 35

5 Hudds 33

6 Hull 32

Hull win, Hudds lose/draw

4 Hull 34

5 Leeds 33

6 Hudds 31/2

Leeds win, Hudds draw

4 Leeds 35

5 Hudds 32

6 Hull 32

Leeds win, Hudds lose

4 Leeds 35

5 Hull 32

6 Hudds 31

This is working on Hudds' incredible points difference and the assumption that Hull won't beat Leeds by several hundred points

Strictly speaking the order should be:

Friday: 1st v 4th

Saturday: 2nd v 3rd followed by 5th v 8th

Sunday: 6th v 7th

However, I have seen reported that because Wigan Athletic are at home on Saturday, Wigan RL have to play on the Sunday.

And because Leeds United are at home on Saturday as well, if the Rhinos finish 5th or 6th then they'll have to play at home on the Friday.

However, if Leeds finish 4th and travelling to Wigan, then the Wire-Saints/Saints-Wire game will be on Friday with the other two games on Saturday.

Some of this however may be speculation, although the Warrington website does state that the time of the Wire game is dependent upon the Leeds game, as well as the Wigan state which highlights possible date change due to stadium availability, which leads to the conclusion above!

This link shows how they worked last year, and I think it's the same this.

Not sure if that "Club-call" thing is going to be applied or not.

Top 5 was far easier and better IMO anyway.

To add to that, if Hull end up playing Hull Kr, they would probably have to play on the Sun even tho the Wigan game looks to have been moved to that day. In Hull they are having a freedom festival on Fri and Sat, and there is no way the police will let them stage a match on while that is going on.

There's no way that should take place. They should keep them East Hull folk locked up where they belong.
