Relegated from Super League: Workington Town (unless they can
beat Wigan by 250 points - I wish - and PSG lose).

Promoted to Super League: Salford Reds

Relegated from Div. 1 to Div. 2: Rochdale Hornets  and
                                 Batley Bulldogs

Promoted from Div. 2 to Div. 1: Hull KR   and probably
                                Swinton Lions
If Hull KR win at Swinton and Hunslet beat Chorley by
80 or 90 points Hunslet could be promoted.

Wooden spoon: Prescot, nee Highfield for the fourth season
in a row - time to dump Prescot into the National Conference
perhaps - except the National Conference are just about to
start their season.

With South Wales being fast tracked into Super League we now
have the stupid scenario of all three divisions with an odd
number of teams - unless things change of course!

Premiership:

Saints, Wigan, Bradford and either Warrington or London.

If London beat Castleford on Sunday Warrington must beat
Saints on Monday. (Likewise if London draw Warrington must
at least draw.)  Given that Wigan will beat Workington
on Saturday both Saints and Warrington in the last match of
the regular season will have something to play for and a
draw will suit neither.  My money would be on London for
the fourth spot.

Divisional Premiership:

Salford, Keighley Cougars, Hull KR and probably Hull.

If Hull lose to visitors Whitehaven (unlikely) then
either Huddersfield (away at Wakefield) or Featherstone
(home to Salford) could snatch the last Premiership
place with a win.  Both have a better points difference
than Hull with Huddersfield's much better than either.

All the best

They probably will!
