IF it comes to the crunch, the toss of a coin could settle placings in the final Super League table this year.

That remains unlikely though.

With growing doubt over whether a full fixture list can be completed before the end of the regular season, the RFL decided places will be determined by percentage wins rather than the number of points gained.

If teams have the same win percentage, positions will decided by points percentage.

And then in the unlikely event they are identical, it will come down to the toss of a coin.

Teams that finish in the top four will go into the knockout play-off semi-finals, with the winners facing each other in the Grand Final at a venue and on a date yet to be confirmed.

Only teams that have played a minimum of 15 matches will be eligible for the semi-finals.

Third-placed Warrington Wolves reached the target last Tuesday, while leaders St Helens and second-placed Wigan Warriors can do likewise on Friday when they play Leeds and Salford respectively.

Leeds, currently in fifth place, are still two games away from the qualifying 15 and fourth-placed Catalans Dragons have three fixtures to squeeze in before they can breathe a little easier.
