5. *NORTH QUEENSLAND: 30 points. F/A: +175 (prior to Monday night's game). Can finish in the top-four by beating Manly and if Penrith lose, courtesy of a huge points differential. Finals spot effectively secured.

6. MELBOURNE: 30 points. F/A: +66. Head into the finals with a win over Brisbane, and could sneak a top-four finish if results go their way. Outside chance of missing out altogether if they lose.

7. CANTERBURY: 30 points. F/A +8. Could have to beat a struggling Gold Coast side on Saturday to ensure a finals berth but will be in should Melbourne see off Brisbane on Friday anyway. Could drop out of the eight if the Warriors and Brisbane win and they lose.

8. BRISBANE: 28 points. F/A +103. Into the finals with a win over Melbourne. Will be out if the Warriors and Parramatta both win and they lose. Can still make eight if they lose and both those sides are beaten and points differential works in their favour.

9. WARRIORS: 28 points. F/A +96. Will make the eight if they beat Penrith and any of Canterbury, Melbourne or Brisbane lose.

10. PARRAMATTA: 28 points. F/A -90. Need to beat Canberra and hope Brisbane and the Warriors both lose to grab eighth spot.
