WITH four games to go, Warrington Wolves are part of a wide-open race to finish in the Super League play-off spots.

Having picked up their first win in more than two months at Hull FC on Saturday, The Wire sit fifth in the table on 24 points – the same as both Salford Red Devils and Hull KR immediately below them. Salford occupy the final play-off spot by virtue of points percentage over the Robins.

Here is how the Super League table currently looks ahead of Round 24…

Who needs what to reach the play-offs?

League leaders Catalans Dragons have already mathematically secured their spot in the top six, with Wigan Warriors and St Helens all but certain to feature barring spectacular collapses.

Challenge Cup winners Leigh Leopards in fourth are in a strong position and one more win should seal their top-six spot, but are not quite out of reach for Wire, Salford and Hull KR.

While they still have a remote mathematical chance of finishing second, the highest Warrington could realistically finish is fourth, which would at least guarantee a home play-off eliminator tie.

In order to do that, they will have to overhaul the four-point gap that currently exists between themselves and Leigh.

Four points below the deadlocked triumvirate are Leeds Rhinos, Huddersfield Giants and Hull FC, all of whom will still harbour hopes – however faint – of gatecrashing the top six.

Super League play-off race run-ins

The Wire’s next game sees them welcome relegation-threatened Castleford Tigers to The Halliwell Jones Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Of the four games they have remaining, only one – the clash with St Helens in Round 26 – is against a side currently above them in the table.

The trip to Salford Red Devils next weekend appears to be a key one and depending on what happens this weekend, Gary Chambers’ side could find themselves in a position to seal their play-off spot with victory at the AJ Bell Stadium.
