So I just crunched some numbers and unfortunately we have the hardest run to the Finals for the last 7 games of the season.
I have worked out a total based on who each team is playing in the next 7 weeks, with 1 point being given if you play against the top team and 16 points being given if you play against the bottom team , and then numbers in between. Therefore the smallest total is the worst case scenario.
Our total is 56 being made up of Warriors(7), Raiders (9) Souths (1), Sharks (6), Eels (16) Titans (12) and Panther (5)
Other teams totals are:
It's going to be very hard for us to finish in the top 2.
The only saving grace may be the home games that each team plays. Storm, Souths, Sharks, Warriors and Broncos have 4 home games each. Roosters have 3 and Dragons and Panthers have 2 only.
Go luck to all and GO STORM!!!
